Another interesting week in the CFL as Winnipeg continues to turn their season around. Montreal comes back to earth, and the Roughriders look to be in serious trouble.
1). Calgary Stampeders (4-1-1)
Rene Paredes kicked five field goals while Andrew Buckley and Anthony Parker each scored a touchdown, leading the Calgary Stampeders to a 35-15 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Thursday night in Calgary. The Stamps seem to have the most complete offence in the CFL. Stamps haven’t lost since the week one heartbreaker in B.C.
2). B.C.Lions (4-2)
Jonathan Jennings connected on 27-of-32 of his passes for 331 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the victory. Which should quiet his critics once again. The Lions were in a battle for three quarters and finally pulled away in the 4th quarter.
Next Up: Host Hamilton
3). Toronto Argonauts (4-2)
Coming off the bye week they face a battle with the red hot Winnipeg Blue Bombers this week.
Next Up: Host Winnipeg Blue Bombers
4). Ottawa Redblacks (4-2-1)
The Redblacks got back on track with a huge win over Edmonton. Offensively Ottawa did not play great, but the defence played well pressuring the QB all night long.
Next Up: BYE
5). Winnipeg Blue Bombers (3-4)
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers scored early and often to pick up a 37-11 win over the Ticats on Wednesday night at Investors Group Field. QB Matt Nichols once again played.
6). Hamilton TiCats (3-3)
Jeremiah Masoli followed up his best quarter of football the week before, with a 3 interception outing as the Ticats were manhandled by the Blue Bombers. Hamilton continues to perplex, one week they look like a Grey Cup contender, the next week they look like the worst team in the CFL.
7). Edmonton Eskimos (2-4)
It may be time to push the panic button in Edmonton, the Eskimos offensive line play is terrible. Throw in the fact that they are not a very good defence and you have trouble in Edmonton.
Next Up: Host Montreal
8). Montreal Alouettes (2-4)
Played tough for three quarters against B.C.. The Als are a team that always plays hard, they just lack enough offensive firepower to get it done.
9). Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-5)
Even the return of Darian Durant could not save the Riders. Now they get a return match with the Stamps, and they badly need a win.
Next Up: Host Calgary
