CFL Power Rankings Week 13

Power Rankings!

1) Calgary Stampeders

Rene Paredes kicked five field goals, including a 43-yarder with no time remaining, to boot the Calgary Stampeders to a thrilling 23-20 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos in the Labour Day Classic. The stamps stay at number one but it was not without a fight as the Eskimos gave the Stamps all they wanted.

Next Up: @Edmonton Eskimos

 

2) Saskatchewan Roughriders

Marcus Thigpen‘s 25-yard touchdown grab a minute into the fourth quarter wound up being the difference, as the Saskatchewan Roughriders held on for a 31-23 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sunday afternoon at new Mosaic Stadium. The Riders have been playing at a high level ever since the return of starting quarterback Zach Collaros.

Next Up: @Winnipeg Blue Bombers

 

3) Edmonton Eskimos

The Eskimos took the Stamps down to the wire in a great football game. Now the task will be to play Calgary yet again and see if you can play with the same intensity. The Eskimos will get the rematch at home and a win could really set this team up for a great second half of the season.

Next up: Host Calgary Stampeders

 

4) Hamilton Tiger-Cats

It was an offensive explosion for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who put up 539 net yards in a 42-28 win over the rival Toronto Argonauts Monday night in the annual Labour Day Classic. I have them rated ahead of the Redblacks because the Redblacks losing by double digits to the Alouettes is inexcusable.

Next Up: @Toronto Argonauts

 

5) Ottawa Redblacks

The Redblacks were throttled by the Montreal Alouettes in a 21-11 loss. Ottawa’s lack of consistency has been horrible over the last couple of years and now you have to wonder if that will ever change?

Next Up: @BC Lions

 

6) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Bombers running back and league-leading rusher Andrew Harris ran for a game-high 158 yards, including 103 in the first half alone, while Matt Nichols and Chris Streveler each threw a touchdown pass in a losing effort. Nichols also threw two interceptions, finishing the game 14-of-26 for 166 yards. All that offense was not enough to get the Blue Bombers the much-needed win against Saskatchewan.

Next Up: Host Saskatchewan Roughriders

 

7) BC Lions

BC was on a bye week this past week.

Next Up: Host Ottawa Redblacks

 

8) Montreal Alouettes

I never thought that the Alouettes would get out of the basement in the CFL this year, but they are now. Als sophomore quarterback Antonio Pipkin completed 18 of 27 passes for 242 pass yards, while the Tiffin University product threw two interceptions. He also made plays on the ground en route to 75 rush yards and a touchdown.

Next Up: Bye Week

 

9) Toronto Argonauts

The Grey Cup champs have fallen and it looks like they might not get back up!

Next Up: Host Hamilton Tiger-Cats
