Publish Date: 09/18/2023
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

CFL Power Rankings

9) Ottawa RedBlacks

Quarterback Dustin Crum completed 19-of-30 passes for 233 yards and one interception while accruing 46 yards and three majors rushing on his own, and the defense forced three picks, with one returned for a touchdown by Douglas Coleman III. The REBLACKS blew a big lead and once again came up short 41-37 to the BC Lions.

8) Calgary Stampeders

The Stampeders had the bye week.

7) Saskatchewan Roughriders

Jake Dolegala led his Riders with three touchdown passes – two to Shawn Bane Jr and one to Tevin Jones – but ultimately could not complete their comeback efforts as they fell to 6-7.

6) Edmonton Elks

The Edmonton Elks kept their postseason hopes alive with an entertaining 36-27 win against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Friday at Mosaic Stadium.

Saskatchewan took two significant leads during the second half, only for Edmonton’s visitors to come storming back with touchdown marches of their own to tie both times and gain the lead again with a 10-yard touchdown run from Tre Ford before adding two points through safety with less than two minutes left for an eventual final score of 46-22.

5) Montreal Alouettes

Cody Fajardo recorded 274 yards, one touchdown pass and an interception in the loss to Toronto. Tyson Philpot led all Al’s receivers with 105 receiving yards and one score.

4) Hamilton Tiger-Cats

As underdogs, the Tu-Cats made an impressionful statement when they hosted the West Division leaders at home.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats earned their third win in the last four games against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers with a 29-23 triumph.

Taylor Powell completed passes for 236 yards, one touchdown and an interception in their win while James Butler added 82 rushing yards and scored once on the ground, while Terry Godwin led all Hamilton receivers with 61 receiving yards and an interception.

3) BC Lions

On Saturday afternoon at BC Place, the BC Lions pulled off an unlikely comeback victory against the Ottawa REDBLACKS to win 41-37.

As BC was trailing by 10 points with less than two minutes remaining, Terry Williams scored a return touchdown to cut it to three and Vernon Adams Jr. scored with 16 seconds left by passing to Lucky Whitehead for a touchdown pass that put BC ahead.

After an exciting first half featuring four lead changes and five tie scores, the REDBLACKS pulled ahead by 19 points after halftime thanks to two running majors by Dustin Crum and an interception by Douglas Coleman III before British Columbia made a late charge and won.

2) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Bombers fell behind 10-0 early and never recovered, losing to the suddenly hot Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The Bombers stayed hot and cold just when it looked like they might be getting on a roll.

1) Toronto Argonauts

Following Montreal Alouettes’s 17 unanswered points in the second half, the Toronto Argonauts struggled in a game they once led by 10.

Earning 10 points during the final three minutes, they secured victory and achieved an 11-1 record, the best start in franchise history.

Chad Kelly amassed 275 yards and one touchdown during their 23-20 win, while AJ Ouellette ran 53 yards with one score, and Tommy Nield led all receivers with an 82-yard reception total.
