1). Calgary Stampeders (13-1-1)
Calgary celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving with a dominant 48-20 win over the Toronto Argonauts in their second of five games against Eastern opponents to end the regular season and also clinched the top spot in the West Division while they were at it. The Stampeders look invincible right now and if they stay healthy it will take a monumental effort to beat them in the playoffs.
Next Up: Host Montreal
2). Winnipeg Blue Bombers (9-6)
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers held off a BC Lions rally and secured a crucial West Division win, holding on for a 37-35 victory. Big time win for the Blue Bombers over a very good B.C. team. The Blue Bombers makes the rematch an even more important game.
Next Up: @B.C.Lions
3). B.C. Lions (9-5)
Tough loss to Winnipeg, but in a quick turnaround they get an immediate rematch this week at home with the Bombers.
Next Up: Host Winnipeg
4). Edmonton Eskimos (8-7)
Buoyed by a dominant third quarter, the Edmonton Eskimos came, saw and conquered at Percival Molson Stadium in Montreal on Thanksgiving Monday, beating the hometown Alouettes 40-20. Mike Reilly threw for 346 yards and a pair of touchdowns, John White ran for 145 yards and a pair of majors, and rookie Brandon Zylstra hauled in his first career touchdown reception as the Eskimos cruised to their second road win in as many weeks.
The Eskimos have become one of the hottest teams in the CFL, and look to be dangerous come playoff time.
Next Up: BYE Week
5). Ottawa RedBlacks (6-7-1)
The RedBlacks are a perplexing team, just when it looks like they are starting to put it all together this happens. Trevor Harris left the game in the 4th quarter and Henry Burris entered and led a dramatic comeback that came up just short. The RedBlacks have a lot of questions to answer before the playoffs begin.
Next Up: @Hamilton
6). Hamilton Tiger-Cats (6-8)
Next Up host Ottawa
7). Saskatchewan RoughRiders (4-10)
Tyler Crapigna connected on six of his seven field goal tries, including a 39-yard kick in overtime, to lead the Riders to a 32-30 win over the Ottawa REDBLACKS on Friday night in Ottawa. The Riders forced five turnovers and chased Trevor Harris from the game, earning their third straight victory and first of the season on the road to stay alive in the playoff hunt. Riders have played very well over the last month of the season.
Next Up: @Toronto
8). Montreal Alouettes (4-10)
The Alouettes were beaten by the Eskimos convincingly, so the hope that a new coach would be able to solve what ails the Alouettes is slowly fading away after last week’s victory.
Next Up: @Calgary
9). Toronto Argonauts (5-10)
If you have watched the Argos the last month of the season you know why they are here.
Next Up: Host Saskatchewan
