1) Edmonton Eskimos

The Eskimos remained undefeated with a 27-20 win on the road in Ottawa. Mike Reilly threw for two touchdown passes and 384 yards as the Eskimos added yet another notch in their undefeated belt Thursday night.

Next Up:@Winnipeg Blue Bombers

 

2) Calgary Stampeders

The Stamps remain number 2 after a bye week, will they be able to pick up where they left off?

Next Up:@B.C. Lions

 

3) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Justin Medlock’s six field goals powered the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to a 39-12 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Tim Horton’s Field on Saturday night.

Winnipeg QB Matt Nichols threw for 267 yards and two touchdowns while running back Andrew Harris could not be contained, rushing for 107 yards in the victory. The Blue Bombers are a legit contender. I took a lot of heat for ranking them over B.C. last week and I believe for now at least they have proven me right.

Next Up: Host Edmonton Eskimos

 

4) B.C.Lions

Starting Jennings over Lulay I believe was a mistake, Lulay had the hot hand and Jennings was coming off a long layoff and as always Jennings threw some head scratching int’s.

Next Up: Host Calgary Stampeders

 

5) Montreal Alouettes

The Alouettes took over first place in the conference as Defensive Coordinator Noel Thorpe’s Montreal defense limited the Argos to just 142 pass yards, registered two sacks and made late-game adjustments to stymie a Toronto comeback attempt. The Als are one of the most improved teams in the league and should only continue to get better.

Next Up:@Toronto Argonauts

 

6) Saskatchewan Roughriders

The Riders were clicking on all cylinders Sunday night as they got revenge for last weeks bad loss at B.C. Kevin Glenn got back on track and the defense played it’s best game of the year.

Next Up: BYE

 

7) Toronto Argonauts

The Argos are in trouble without QB Ricky Ray and that was proven in Montreal as the offense did next to nothing the whole game.

Next Up: Host Montreal

 

8) Ottawa Redblacks

The Redblacks seem to be playing in a fog this year, as always they did not play bad, but they could never get over the hump. The 7 point loss is the worst of a very strange year.

Next Up:@Hamilton Ti-Cats

 

9) Hamilton Ti-Cats

Still winless, but it will be interesting to see what new offensive coordinator June Jones can do with the offense.

Next Up:Host Ottawa Redblacks

    Saskatchewan should be higher than Montreal due to the fact that we beat a good Western Division team, while Montreal beat a depleted team without their Hall of Fame quarterback.
