CFL Week 3 Power Rankings: Top 3 teams stay the same

Publish Date: 06/19/2023
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

CFL Power Rankings

The CFL seems to be a very top-heavy league with three leading contenders. The Argos, Bombers, and Lions, outside of those three teams the rest of the league looks to be a mess.

9) Edmonton Elks

The Elks were shut out and humiliated by the BC Lions; on the bright side, the defense played well enough to keep them in the game.

8) Ottawa Redblacks

The Elks offense was so bad that the Rebdlacks moved up a spot this week.

7) Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The Tiger-cats were blown out for the second straight week, but the most concerning thing may be quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell who looks old. Mitchell threw two interceptions before being replaced by Matthew Shiltz, who played well in mop-up duty.

6) Calgary Stampeders

Dedrick Mills ran for 99 yards as the Stampeders pulled away for the win in the second half over the Ottawa Redblacks. A lot of questions still exist from a Stampeders team that looks like it could have a long season.

5) Saskatchewan Roughriders

The Roughrider’s defense looked great last week, but that was against the inept Elks offense; this past week, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers scored 45 points on that defense, including a 28-point explosion in the second half.

4) Montreal Alouettes

The Als had the bye week this past week and hopefully they did something about a shaky offensive line.

3) Toronto Argonauts

Toronto opened the defense of their Grey Cup Title by intercepting Bo Levi Mitchell en route to a convincing 32-14 victory. Offensively the Argos ran the ball well rushing for well over 100 yards. Chad Kelly protected the ball and threw for over 200 yards, but the day’s story was the Argos defense, which looked capable of making another run at the Grey Cup.

2) BC Lions

The BC Lions defense put on a dominating clinic against the inept Elks this past weekend, holding the Lions under 100 passing yards and the rushing game did not produce much either for the Elks. Maybe this was more of a case that the Elks are that bad, but the Lions now sit at 2-0 and look poised to challenge the Bombbers, and they will do just that this weekend as they travel to Winnipeg for an important early season clash.

1) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

After a slow start, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers scored 28 points in the second half to pull away from the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The Bombers have been pegged as the favorites to win the CFL, and nothing we have seen in the first two weeks will not change that. A home game against the BC Lions looms.
