The league seems to be flipping upside down with the resurgence of the Blue Bombers , Ti Cats. Matt Nichols and Zach Collaros are making these two teams contenders. The Calgary Stampeders proved once again to be the class of the CFL, with a thorough beating of the B.C.Lions. Saskatchewan has been left for dead and the Argonauts are getting close to being left for dead themselves. The Eskimos got a win this week, but still have huge questions on the offensive line and defense.
1). Calgary Stampeders (6-1-1)
The Stamps jumped out to a 16-9 halftime lead, then pitched a second-half shutout in a thorough start-to-finish road victory over their division rival. Bo Levi Mitchell threw a pair of touchdown passes and kept the Stamps’ offence on the field throughout most of the game, helping Calgary win its fifth straight game and improve to 6-1-1 on the season.
Next Up: Host Hamilton
2). B.C.Lions (5-3)
B.C. was manhandled, but will stay at number two. Mainly because the Ti Cats and Blue Bombers I am still a little unsure of. Plus add in the fact that the Lions no matter how they played this week are a very good team. No reason to move them yet, but one more effort like thios weeks and they will start to fall.
Next Up: @Ottawa
3). Hamilton Tiger Cats (4-4)
Zach Collaros threw five touchdown passes, connected on 23-of-31 of his passes for 381 yards and no interceptions in his team’s’ dominating 53-7 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The Tiger cats are an entirely different team with Collaros at the helm.
Next Up: @Calgary
4). Winnipeg Blue Bombers (4-4)
Had a bye week, now on to Montreal to try to stretch the win streak to 4 straight.
Next Up: @Montreal
5). Ottawa Redblacks (4-3-1)
Ottawa since starting the season out hot, are now trending in a downward direction. Losing to Montreal is unforgivable!
Next up: Host B.C. Lions
6). Edmonton Eskimos (4-4)
This team is still in trouble. You can’t win football games at any level with poor offensive line play and defense.
Next up: Host Saskatchewan Roughriders
7). Montreal Alouettes (3-5)
Duron Carter caught two touchdown passes, including one on a 67-yard catch and run, while Glenn finished his most productive day of the season with 382 passing yards on 25-of-30 passing with no interceptions.
Next up: Host Winnipeg Blue Bombers
8). Toronto Argonauts (4-4)
Toronto is in a lot of trouble, I’m sure that is obvious to everybody reading this. Losing Rickey Ray may have been a death blow to the Argos season.
Next up: BYE
9). Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-7)
Lost 53-7 to Hamilton and haven’t played well in weeks.
Next Up: @Edmonton Eskimos
