The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / CFL Power Rankings Week 5

CFL Power Rankings Week 5

Week 5!
Publish Date: 07/09/2018
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

1) Calgary Stampeders

The Stampeders are the class of the league so far this season and are coming off a bye week.

Next Up: @Ottawa

 

2) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Quarterback Matt Nichol’s looked sharp in his return to the Blue Bombers lineup and the CFL’s top rushing attack continued to find success once again, with Harris racking up 109 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries, including a 43-yard run. With Nichol’s back, the Bombers are a big-time threat to anybody in the CFL.

Next Up: @B.C. Lions

 

3) Ottawa Redblacks

Quarterback Trevor Harris threw for 342 yards and a trio of touchdowns in the win for Ottawa, while Brad Sinopoli caught a career-high 11 passes en route to a game-high 148 receiving yards and a touchdown. REDBLACKS feature back William Powell also ripped off a season-high 138 rush yards. The game ended up being a nail-biter in the 4th quarter after Ottawa dominated the first three quarters. Once again the Redblacks defence played well.

Next Up: Host Calgary Stampeders

 

4) Hamilton Ti-Cats

Jeremiah Masoli tied the CFL’s record with his ninth-straight 300-yard passing game. But it wasn’t enough in what turned out to be a surprise defensive battle. Hamilton’s offence looked sharp at the beginning of the game but struggled as the game went along. The good thing for the Ti-Cats is that once again the defense played well, and I think in the long run this could be looked back on as just a blip on the radar.

Next Up: Bye Week

 

5) Edmonton Eskimos

The Eskimos could not overcome Argos quarterback James Franklin’s hot-start and fell to the Argos 20-17. The good thing for the Eskimos is the defence, after a rough first quarter, played well.

Next Up: Host Toronto Argonauts

 

6) Saskatchewan Roughriders

The Saskatchewan Roughriders squeezed out an 18-13 victory over Hamilton on Thursday night to kick off Week 4 of the CFL season. After this game, I think the Riders have a good enough defence to keep them in most games, but without quarterback Zach Collaros they will struggle to win games. But this was a big win for the Riders after last week’s disastrous loss to the Alouettes.

Next Up: Bye Week

 

7) Toronto Argonauts

James Franklin led the Argos to their first win of the season, throwing for 217 yards. He also tossed a touchdown pass and ran for another in his starting debut for the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday afternoon.

Next Up: @Edmonton Eskimos

 

8) B.C. Lions

Same old story for the Lions as they have a decent roster but quarterback Jonathon Jennings continued to turn the ball over and play inconsistently. Could it be a long season for the Lions?

Next Up: Host Winnipeg Blue Bombers

 

9) Montreal Alouettes

The Als attempted to mount a late-game comeback attempt, but it fell short due to a combination of penalties and incompletions in a 28-18 loss to Ottawa. The Alouettes have played better as of late.

Next Up: Bye Week
