The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / CFL Weekly Power Rankings, Week 17

CFL Weekly Power Rankings, Week 17

CFL Power Rankings Week 17
Publish Date: 10/12/2017
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

At this point in the CFL season, some teams are set in their spots in The Grueling Truth CFL weekly power rankings. However, right around no. 3, the iffiness begins and by no. 5, we promise dissension. ON the other hand, we can certainly all agree on no. 9…

1) Calgary Stampeders

The Stamps had the bye this week.

Next up: at Hamilton Tiger-Cats

2) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Bombers laid an egg against the Ti-Cats, but they still deserve the no. 2 spot on this list.

Next up: host BC Lions

3) Saskatchewan Roughriders

Brandon Bridge replaced Kevin Glenn at quarterback and provided just the spark the Roughriders needed to leave BMO Field with a 27-24 victory.

Next up: Host Ottawa Redblacks

4) Edmonton Eskimos

Don’t look now, but the Eskimos are back! Mike Reilly led Edmonton last week with 286 passing yards, 43 rushing yards, and a pair of touchdowns against one interception. CJ Gable rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown in his Esks debut, while Brandon Zylstra caught seven passes for 201 yards and a TD in the win over Toronto. With Reilly and now Gable, the Eskimos are back in the hunt.

Next up: host Toronto Argonauts

5) Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Jeremiah Masoli calmly picked his spots and passed for over 300 yards as Hamilton shocked the Winnipeg Blue Bombers with a 30-13 win that keeps the Tiger-Cats’ slim playoff hopes alive in the East. The Ti-Cats’ resurgence has been remarkable, and they may not be done just yet.

Next up: host Calgary Stampeders

6) Toronto Argonauts

The Argos lost a heartbreaker to Edmonton, but remain in control of their own destiny in the East.

Next up: at Edmonton Eskimos

7) Ottawa Redblacks

The Ottawa Redblacks battled back from a 19-point deficit late in the third quarter to stun the BC Lions 30-25 at BC Place on Saturday. Greg Ellingson led all receivers with 149 yards on seven catches and a two TDs in the second half.

After being contained to just six points and no majors through the first two quarters, Trevor Harris found his stride midway through the game and finished the day with 380 passing yards and three touchdown tosses. It was Harris’ first game back after suffering a shoulder injury last month. With Harris back, the Redblacks are once again a contender.

Next up: at Saskatchewan Roughriders

8) B.C. Lions

The Lions blew a huge lead against the Redblacks last week and that effectively will in all likelihood end the Lions’ season.

Next up: at Winnipeg Blue Bombers

9) Montreal Alouettes

The Als are just a bad team right now, and there is no sign that will change anytime soon.

Next up: bye
