1). Calgary Stampeders (12-1-1)
In Calgary’s first game since the tragic death of their teammate, Mylan Hicks, the Calgary Stampeders improved their record to 12-1-1, and remain unbeaten since Week 1. Stampeders dominated Hamilton in every phase of the game.
NEXT UP: @Toronto
2). B.C.Lions (9-4)
The REDBLACKS and Lions entered Saturday’s game with heavy stakes, and it showed, as the two teams combined for a good old fashioned shootout at BC Place on Saturday. Quarterbacks Trevor Harris and Jonathon Jennings went tit for tat all night, but it was the Lions who ultimately emerged victorious, solidifying their position near the top of the West Division with a 40-33 victory.
NEXT UP: @Winnipeg
3). Winnipeg BlueBombers (8-6)
A win for Winnipeg would have all but locked up their first playoff berth since 2011, but Nichols and the Bombers will now have to wait at least one more week for that honour.
NEXT UP: Host B.C.Lions
4). Edmonton Eskimos (7-7)
With playoff hopes dangling on both sides of the ball on Friday night, it was Mike Reilly and the Edmonton Eskimos who came out victorious in Winnipeg, keeping their playoff hopes alive with a 40-26 victory against the Blue Bombers.
NEXT UP: @Montreal
5). Ottawa RedBlacks (6-6-1)
Lost a hard fought contest to the Lions, but it was by far the best game they have played in awhile.
NEXT UP: Host Saskatchewan
6). Hamilton Tiger-Cats (6-8)
Zach Collaros left the game after the first thirty minutes with an upper body injury and did not return for the rest of the contest, adding to the long list of injuries Hamilton has had to deal with. Collaros ended his night connecting on 16-of-22 passes for 120 yards and one interception. They have a much need by this week.
NEXT UP: BYE
7). Montreal Alouettes (4-9)
Rakeem Cato threw for four touchdowns and the Alouettes offence came alive as Montreal cruised to a 38-11 victory over the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday afternoon.
NEXT UP: Host Edmonton
8). Saskatchewan Roughriders (3-10)
Coming off bye week.
NEXT UP: @Ottawa
8). Toronto Argonauts (5-8)
The Argos got destroyed by the Alouettes, to say they are in trouble would be a huge understatement. I know they have a better record than the Roughriders and the Alouettes, but nobody is playing worse than the Argos right now.
NEXT UP: Host Calgary
