CFL Power Rankings Week 11: A New Number one this week

Publish Date: 08/14/2023
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Week 9

Week 9 saw the rankings change at the top with an injury to Zach Collaros and the Lions and Argos being dominant once again, while the Bombers struggled without their leader.

9) Edmonton Elks

The Elks completely outplayed Winnipeg for over half the game before doing what the Elks do, which is lose. This one was painful because of a three-touchdown lead that got away.

8) Calgary Stampeders

Ka’Deem Carey returned from an early-season injury and ran for 44 yards on seven carries while also catching two passes for 14 yards in a losing effort for the 3-6 Stampeders. That was the Stampeders’ bright spot in a bad loss to the BC Lions.

7) Saskatchewan Roughriders

Jamal Morrow had an excellent game with 18 carries for 81 yards, but he was the only bright spot in a 41-12 loss to the Montreal Alouettes.

6) Hamilton Ti-Cats

The Ti-Cats had a bye week.

5) Ottawa Redblacks

At times, the lead changed hands five times during this game, with the REDBLACKS taking an early 10-0 advantage in scoring.

Ottawa’s offense excelled during this matchup, but their defense faltered as Toronto Argonauts proved unstoppable throughout.

4) Montreal Alouettes

Caleb Evans took over for Cody Fajardo as quarterback for the Montreal Alouettes on Friday at Molson Stadium, leading them to a 41-12 victory against Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Evans scored two rushing and passing scores against Montreal, while Fajardo dressed as the third quarterback due to an injury he sustained against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last week. Evans recorded two rushing majors while Fajardo donned his third quarterback jersey as an alternate option due to shoulder pain suffered during their last meeting.

Running back Walter Fletcher took the field in place of William Stanback due to injury and finished with 129 total yards – including an airborne connection of 68 yards with his pivot. Backfield partner Jeshrun Antwi also scored an Alouettes win at 5-3 with an outstanding running major score.

To cap an outstanding fourth-quarter performance, Tyrice Beverette scored on an unassisted fumble return for Jason Maas’ team.

3) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

As Dru Brown took over after Zach Collaros went down due to injury against the Edmonton Elks and found strength from knowing his team was rallying around him, the team found momentum to come back and win with 28 second-half points scored for a comeback victory.

Chipping away at their deficit was precisely what the Bombers did to overcome it: finding their feet under centre (Daniel Brown), using their defense’s stops as fuel for another offensive drive, and not cracking under pressure after falling behind both on the scoreboard and roster-wise. Losing Collaros and barely beating the winless Eskimos drops the Bombers from the top spot.

2) BC Lions

Vernon Adams Jr. and Keon Hatcher combined for 170 yards and two scores as Vernon Adams Jr. led the BC Lions past the Calgary Stampeders 37-9 on Friday in Vancouver.

The veteran QB returned to action for the first time since suffering an injury against Saskatchewan Roughriders during Week 8 and immediately rejuvenated an offence that struggled last week, scoring four touchdowns against the Calgary Stampeders.

At the core of BC’s offensive success was Hatcher-Norwood’s connection. They connected nine times – including an incredible 46-yard catch – as their passing offence ran seamlessly all evening.

1) Toronto Argonauts

The Argonauts came away victorious against the Ottawa REDBLACKS 44-31 on Saturday thanks to 21 second-quarter points and a collective team effort, including major defensive stops late in the game, keeping their undefeated home streak intact.

Chad Kelly amassed 417 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception, while DaVaris Daniels made headlines by collecting 180 yards on six receptions for three touchdowns for Toronto Argonauts in a dramatic win.

Adarius Pickett played an integral part of Toronto’s defense with five tackles and one sack, while Wynton McManis added eight tackles, and Folarin Orimolade made one sack himself.
