9) Ottawa Redblacks

The Redblacks had a bye week to try and regroup. Will it help? I doubt it, as the roster is not good enough to win at this point.

8) Edmonton Elks

Taylor Cornelius threw for 243 yards (19 of 33), no touchdowns, and three interceptions. That stat line should tell you all you need to know about this game for the Elks. They grabbed the lead in the third quarter, but it was all Blue Bombers from there on out.

7) Calgary Stampeders

Bo Levi Mitchell started but, for the most part, was ineffective until backup Jake Maier replaced him. Maier looked good going completing all 9 of his passes for 80 yards and a touchdown, but it wasn’t enough as the Stamps came up short against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

6) Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The Ti-Cats overcame starting quarterback Dane Evans, with David Watford winning his first career CFL start. Watford completed 86 percent of his passes for 149 yards.

5) Montreal Alouettes

The Alouettes were influential on the ground as the Als combined for 183 rushing yards. However, throwing the ball was much different as Vernon Adams completed less than 50 percent of his passes and threw two interceptions to contribute to the loss to the BC Lions.

4) Toronto Argonauts

The Argonauts were not bad throwing the ball in a 30-16 road loss to the Saskatchewan Rough Riders, but an anemic run offense led to the team’s demise.

3) BC Lions

Michael Reilly‘s two passing touchdowns and 308 passing yards were essential factors in the BC Lions’ 27-18 win over the Montreal Alouettes. The Lions are starting to look like one of the few teams that can compete with the Blue Bombers and riders at this moment.

2) Saskatchewan Roughriders

The Riders are dominant when not playing Winnipeg. The Riders took care of the Argos with relative ease, led by QB Cody Fajardo, who accounted for three touchdowns, and RB William Powell rushed for 122 yards.

1) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Two defensive scores led the way for yet another Blue Bomber win. The Bombers are a complete team and will be hard to derail on the way to the Grey Cup.
