The Edmonton Elks and Hamilton Tiger-Cats have struggled on both sides of the ball so far this season. This matchup in Edmonton is a must-win for both teams if they want to save their seasons. The Elks have shown signs of life on the defensive end of the field, as in their last game, they held Saskatchewan to 12 points. If the Elks defense can step up in this game, they may get their first win of the season.
Things looked up for Edmonton last week as the Elks held an 11-3 lead entering the fourth quarter, only for it all to unravel in a matter of minutes. Taylor Cornelious didn’t stand out much last week either – passing 226 yards with two interceptions but scoring their only touchdown on the ground!
Edmonton showed great defense against Saskatchewan; however, their challenge will be maintaining this performance against other CFL teams; their defense has struggled versus teams other than Saskatchewan Roughriders in recent times.
People making predictions between the Tiger-Cats and Elks will notice that Matthew Shiltz was solid but unspectacular as Hamilton’s quarterback. He managed 233 yards, one touchdown and an interception for Hamilton, while their run game only managed to provide top rusher James Buttler with 62 yards on 17 carries.
The Ti-Cats are very average on the offensive side of the ball, and the defensive side will not win many games on their own. This team will struggle most of the year, and this game is a must-win with all the issues they have at this point.
Making CFL predictions on this game can be challenging. Although Edmonton is an underachieving team and hasn’t won yet this season, they did show some defensive strength against Saskatchewan this year, but the Elks are a nad team. I still think this will be a competitive and close game – though neither side are perfect, Hamilton should find ways to prevail!
