CFL Power Rankings Week 12: Edmonton finally wins!

Publish Date:08/21/2023
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

Week 12

The Argos stay at number one after their by week. The biggest surprise is we no longer have the Elks last after they won their first game in a year. That drops Hamilton to the bottom spot, deservedly so as these are Power rankings, which means which team is the best right now, and the Ticats have shown that as of today, they are the worst team in the CFL.

9) Hamilton Ti-Cats

Quarterback Taylor Powell and the Ticats’ offence successfully moved the ball on the ground, yet could not convert this momentum into more than one major from running back James Butler.

Powell completed 20-of-26 passes for 217 yards, while Butler added nine carries for 101 yards and the touchdown as the Tiger-Cats fell to 3-6. I know that the Ticats have won three games, but they lost at home to Edmonton by double-digits and that deserves a last-place standing in these rankings.

8) Edmonton Eskimos

The Edmonton Elks went into halftime leading by 12 points for a second consecutive week on Thursday in Hamilton. A two-hour weather delay couldn’t prevent them from scoring their inaugural victory of the year in an easy 24-10 win against the Tiger-Cats at Tim Hortons Field.

The Elks won their first game since September after 13 consecutive losses, largely thanks to National quarterback Tre Ford, who threw for 174 yards on 13 of 18 throws with two majors and added 60 yards on five carries on the ground.

Ford’s primary target was former Tiger-Cats wide receiver Steven Dunbar Jr., who made four catches for 93 yards and two touchdowns.

7) Ottawa Redblacks

The Redblacks went into halftime up 17-3 and looked ready to pull the upset. Then the second half came and the implosion began for the lowly Redblacks.

6) Calgary Stampeders

Jake Maier and the Stampeders moved the ball, but were unable to complete drives as they relied solely on Paredes’ scoring leg for all of their points. Maier completed 11 out of 24 passes for 190 yards with one pick as they dropped to 3-7 overall.

Paredes entered the game having made 18 consecutive field goals; however, his third kick resulted in him missing and ending his streak at 20. Still, the veteran managed six makes out of eight attempts.

5) Saskatchewan Roughriders

On Sunday night, the Riders got revenge against BC Lions by handing them a 34-29 defeat and narrowly escaping a Lions comeback attempt to even their record on the season.

Jake Dolegala led the Riders with 239 passing yards and three touchdown passes, while Samuel Emilus led their receiver corps with 106 receiving yards on five receptions, resulting in one touchdown catch.

Five different members of the Riders’ defence recorded sacks during this game, with Larry Dean and C.J. Reavis both contributing four tackles and one sack, while Jeremy Clark recorded three tackles and an interception.

4) Montreal Alouettes

At the three-minute warning, 24-13, Montreal still trailed but didn’t give up easily.

QB Dane Evans first found Tyler Snead for his second touchdown catch of the game with 2:33 left on the clock to close the deficit to 24-29.

The Als defense got the ball back about 90 seconds later after a quick defensive stop – giving Evans and company enough time to orchestrate what proved to be a game-winning touchdown drive.

3) BC Lions

Vernon Adams Jr. threw for 455 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the loss to the Riders.Β  Alexander Hollins led all Lions receivers with 161 receiving yards and a score on seven receptions. This was a bad loss to a divisional opponent in a very winnable game for the Lions.

2) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers emerged victorious from Friday night’s 19-18 defensive contest between them and Calgary Stampeders at McMahon Stadium.

Both teams struggled to produce more than field goals as both defenses employed a bend-don’t-break tactic, and kickers Sergio Castillo and Rene Paredes combined for ten field goals ; what separated the teams was an interception returned for a major by Bombers defensive back Demerio Houston that helped seal victory for them.

Castillo made all four field goal attempts, in addition to making his one-point-after-conversion attempt.

Quarterback Dru Brown completed 17 of 27 passes for 171 yards, while running back Brady Oliveira added 80 yards over 14 carries to lead the 8-2 Blue Bombers to victory.
