1) Edmonton Eskimos
Mike Reilly completed 24 of 32 passes for 412 yards in the win for Edmonton (5-0), while Travis Lulay went 22-for-26 for 259 yards in the loss for BC (4-2). The Eskimos got a huge win and have taken control of the West.
Next Up: Host Hamilton Ti-Cats
2) Calgary Stampeders
The Stamps made quick work as expected of the Hamilton Ti-Cats. The Stamps led at halftime 39-1 and cruised to victory.
Next Up: @Toronto Argonauts
The Lions came up short in there game with Edmonton in a game that saw a third quarter rally come up short. The officials did not help the Lions in this game. Travis Lulay had another solid performance, but in the end it wasn’t enough.
Next Up: Host Saskatchewan Roughriders
4) Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Trailing by 12 with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, the Blue Bombers looked down and out. But QB Matt Nichols led the Bombers on a furious comeback capped by a last-second touchdown run from RB Andrew Harris, and the Bombers had their third victory of the season 41-40.
Next Up: @Ottawa Redblacks
5) Ottawa Redblacks
I know what Ottawa’s record is and I still think they are the best team in the east. The upcoming game against Winnipeg is a game that the Redblacks need to win.
Next Up: Host Winnipeg Blue Bombers
6) Montreal Alouettes
The Alouettes offense is beginning to click and they are already a good defensive football team. They blew a big lead in Winnipeg, but Darian Durant seems to play a little better each week. This team is headed in their right direction and they can be a big-time player in the east.
Next Up: BYE
7) Saskatchewan Roughriders
The Riders got a much needed win over the Argonauts, I still think the Riders are in for a long year, but with the offensive weapons they have they are a tough out for most anybody this year.
Next Up: @B.C.Lions
8) Toronto Argonauts
I know they are in first(for now), but I am not convinced that the Argos are for real. Ricky Ray has been lights out and they have a great coaching staff. I question the defense and if they have enough weapons on offense. Ray will keep them battling for the division all year, but this looks like a .500 team at best to me.
Next Up: Host Calgary Stampeders
9) Hamilton Ti-Cats
I feel no need to have to explain this, the Ti-Cats are terrible.
