1). Calgary Stampeders (14-1-1)

The Stampeders as expected shutdown the Alouettes, while not an impressive performance it was yet another Stamps win.

 

Next Up: Host Toronto

 

2). Winnipeg Blue Bombers (10-6)

A 10-point fourth quarter lead vanished almost in a flash as two BC turnovers in the final three minutes, combined with two timely Winnipeg scores gave the Blue Bombers a 35-32 win over the Lions Friday night at BC Place.The Bombers’ sweep of the home-and-home now gives them sole possession of second place in the West Division with three weeks remaining in the regular season. The back to back wins over the Lions should quiet doubters of the Blue Bombers.

Next Up: BYE

 

3). B.C.Lions (9-6)

Lost another close battle with the Blue Bombers, but this team will be a definite threat come playoff time.

Next Up: Host Edmonton

 

4). Edmonton Eskimos (8-7)

One of the hottest teams in the CFL, an away game in B.C. will tell us exactly how good they are.

Next Up: @B.C. Lions

 

5). Ottawa Red Blacks (7-7-1)

With first place in the East on the line, it was the Ottawa REDBLACKS who held on for the win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. With the 30-29 victory, the REDBLACKS held on, to the top spot in the East Division, giving themselves a three-point cushion over the Tiger-Cats. Henry Burris played really well in the game and solidified his claim as the starting QB for Ottawa. They will look to lock up the division this week in the rematch as they will this time host Hamilton.

Next Up: Host Hamilton

 

6). Hamilton Tiger-Cats (6-9)

In a must-win situation this week as they go to Ottawa to try to stay in the race for the division crown.

Next Up: @Ottawa

 

7). Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-10)

The Roughriders continued their resurgence behind RB Joe McKnight Making his first career CFL start, McKnight was stellar, rushing for 150 yards on 17 carries, as the Saskatchewan Roughriders picked up an impressive 29-11 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday night.

Next Up: Host Montreal

 

8). Montreal Alouettes (5-11)

The Alouettes defence was stout again, and once again it was not enough as the offence could do nothing until the last few minutes of the game.

 

Next Up: @Saskatchewan

 

9). Toronto Argonauts (5-11)

The Argos seem to get a little worse each week.

Next Up: @Calgary

    Next week Riders could be tied with Hamilton at 6-10!!! That would leave Ottawa as the ONLY Eastern team with a record better than all 5 West teams.

    Is it time to start considering more than ONE Western team for the cross-over?
