That was a wild week! Winnipeg and Montreal both win on the same week, Toronto upsets Ottawa and Calgary wins a classic over the Lions.
1). Calgary Stampeders (3-1-1)
Needed a dramatic last minute comeback and overtime to beat the Lions at home.The Stampeders scored 22 points in the fourth quarter on their way to the comeback, led by quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell who threw for 364 yards, connecting on 29 of 44 passes and three touchdowns. This is a complete team and the best team in the CFL as of right now.
Next Up: Host Saskatchewan
2). B.C.Lions (3-2)
The Lions got great QB play from Jonathan Jennings until the end of the game. For all you Lions fans that are blaming the game on him please, chill out. Jennings is an outstanding young QB who made a mistake. I think the blame maybe should go on the coach for not running the ball and punting in that situation. A punt should have made it so the Stampeders would have had to drive 60 or 70 yards, but I can also see the point of trusting the young QB. The Lions are a contender!
3). Toronto Argonauts (4-2)
Making his first career start, Logan Kilgore paced the Argonauts to the win over the Redblacks, throwing for 322 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions on 25-of-42 passing. Lirim Hajrullahu kicked five field goals, including a 53 yarder with 1:15 remaining, to secure the win. Toronto has now won 3 road games, The question is can they start winning at home?
4). Ottawa Redblacks (3-2-1)
Two straight losses with, this one attributed to hopefully just a rusty Henry burris. I think we will find out a lot about this team this week.
Next Up: Host Edmonton
5). Hamilton Tiger Cats
Coming off the bye week they travel to Winnipeg, can Massoli play two straight strong games?
6). Edmonton Eskimos (2-3)
A loss that shouldn’t happen to the Eskimos but did. Question now is did the loss of most of the coaching staff really hurt this team that much? It could be with the new faces it is just going to take more time for the Eskimos to come together as a team.
7). Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2-4)
Huge win for the Blue Bombers in Edmonton. QB Matt Nichols had Eskimos fans seeing green on Thursday evening, outplaying former teammate Mike Reilly en route to Winnipeg’s second victory of the 2016 season. The former Eskimo completed over 78 per cent of his passes for over 300 yards and a score in his first start of the year, leading the Blue Bombers to a 30-23 win. The question as always is can he do it again?
Next Up: Host Hamilton
8). Montreal Alouettes (2-4)
The Alouettes finally put it all together at Saskatchewan’s expense. Quarterback Kevin Glenn threw for 299 yards and a pair of touchdowns, receiver Duron Carter hauled in 115 receiving yards, and the Als defence was in dominant form en route to a 41-3 statement victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Next Up: Host B.C.Lions
9). Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-4)
If you saw the game, this ranking needs no explanation.
