CFL Week 6 Power Rankings!
Week 5 saw a huge win for Saskatchewan over Ottawa, with Ottawa losing Trevor Harris. Hamilton came from 31-6 down to beat Edmonton in Edmonton. Week 6 brings a huge early season rematch between B.C. and Calgary.
1) B.C.Lions (3-1)
It’s nice to be able to move up on a bye week, B.C. will look to prove once and for all to the doubters that they are for real as they battle Calgary. If Jennings can string two big games together it will be huge for a team whose defense has carried them most of the season.
2) Ottawa Redblacks (3-1-1)
Losing Trevor Harris I think had a huge affect on last week’s game, him being out drops the Redblacks to number two this week. All’s not lost for the Redblacks as third string QB Brock Jensen performed at a high level.

3) Calgary Stampeders (2-1-1)
Bo Levi Mitchell tossed 3 TD passes in a win over Winnipeg. Stampeders also have a solid running game with Jerome Massam, and a strong defense. Huge early season game with B.C. will hopefully answer questions about both teams.

4) Hamilton Ti-Cats (3-2)
The Ticats in my estimation are still one of the deepest teams in the CFL. While they wait for star QB Zach Collaros to get healthy they are proving it by being 3-2. Massoli shows flashes of greatness and he most certainly did this week with 23 straight completions to lead an amazing comeback. My defense for Hamilton over the Eskimos in these ratings? Number one they did just beat them in Edmonton and number two the Eskimos just haven’t looked in sync so far this year.
5) Edmonton Eskimos (2-2)
For a little over a half the Eskimos finally looked like most fans thought they would. Then the last 25 minutes of the game came and saw major defensive questions arise and offensive line questions also. We have been waiting for the Eskimos to gel, and we are still waiting.

6) Toronto Argonauts (3-2)
Ricky Ray and Cody Farajo combined for four touchdown passes as the Toronto Argonauts notched their first win at BMO Field, beating the Montreal Alouettes 30-17 on Monday night. It was by no means a dominant win, but as they say a win’s a win.
7) Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-3)
Finally in the win column, and whether you like head coach Chris Jones or not, you have to admit he is a very good football coach. The Roughriders are a team that will continue to improve this year. QB Mitchell Gale looks like he can handle the job.
8) Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1-4)
Winnipeg is in disarray, and contrary to public perception, I think it falls on the front office.
Next Up: @Edmonton
9) Montreal Alouettes (1-4)
As always the effort was there for the Alouettes, they just simply need a few more playmakers on each side of the ball. QB Kevin Glenn played well as did Duron Carter, but they need more than a couple of guys playing well.
