CFL Power Rankings Week 7: The Argos stay at number one, while the Redblacks climb

Power Rankings

The pecking order go a little jumbled after a great week of action in the CFL. This was the most competitive and fund week of the season yet.

9) Edmonton Eskimos

The Elks gave up 24 unanswered points that sealed their fate in the second and third quarter. The Elks are the only winless team in the CFL.

8) Hamilton Tiger-Cats

On Thursday evening at Commonwealth Stadium, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats scored 24 consecutive unanswered points to claim an eventual 37-29 win over the Edmonton Elks.

Hamilton’s offense found its groove late in the first half and continued its dominance into the second against a Green and Gold team still searching for their first home win since October 12, 2019.

Quarterback Matthew Shiltz produced a rushing touchdown and connected with Tim White and Tyreik McAllister before exiting due to injury late in the third quarter. When Taylor Powell filled in for Shiltz, he found success right away by connecting on an 11-yard touchdown pass for White on his initial possession of game play.

7) Saskatchewan Roughriders

Riders’ fate was compounded with further disappointment when Trevor Harris suffered a leg injury and had to leave the game, prompting Mason Fine to complete 6-8 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns as quickly as possible in relief of Harris. The Riders have been inconsistent this season, and how long Harris will miss may tell the tale on this season.

6) Ottawa Redblacks

Ottawa was trailing 25-9 against the Winnipeg Blue Bomber before Brandin Dandridge picked off Zach Collaros for a touchdown – cutting their deficit down to eight with just under one minute remaining in play.

Once Crum got the ball back and marched downfield into the red zone with nine seconds remaining in regulation, the Redblacks got the two point conversion to send the game to overtime.

As soon as the REDBLACKS took possession in overtime after forcing the Blue Bombers into settling for a field goal, Crum knew he had what it took to secure victory for his side.

5) Montreal Alouettes

The Alouettes lost a tough back-and-forth affair against the Argonauts; Quarterbackย Cody Fajardo threw three touchdown passes, all of them to receiverย Tyler Snead and two picks as Montreal repeatedly battled back against the Argos in the second half. The Als are now sitting with a .500 record, but they are a better team than there record would indicate.

4. Calgary Stampeders

Rene Parades was key in helping the Stamps gain an exciting victory over the Riders at Mosaic Stadium with his 50-yard walk-off field goal clinching a 33-31 win.

On a night that saw two return touchdowns from Saskatchewan’s Mario Alford and an epic Hail Mary touchdown reception from Riders receiver Tevin Jones that left Mosaic convinced their team had just pulled off another victory this season, Saturday’s field goal proved decisive in handing victory to the Stamps avenging their overtime loss against the Riders earlier.

3. Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Blue Bombers imploded against Ottawa after jumping out to a 25-9 lead, it was an inexcusable loss for a team that a lot of people thought was going to dominate the league this season. The Bombers have some issues and they better come up with some answers soon.

2. BC Lions

The Lions had a bye this week and maintain at the number two spot on this list.

1. Toronto Argonauts

For the first time in over four decades, the Toronto Argonauts are undefeated after four games.

On Friday at Percival Molson Memorial Stadium in Toronto, Toronto defeated the Montreal Alouettes 35-27 and secured its first perfect start since 1983.

Chad Kelly scored four touchdowns, three through the air and one on the ground, in this victory, while also throwing one interception.

Damonte Coxie made a stunning one-handed touchdown catch, and David Ungerer III made two key grabs from Kelly, including an early go-ahead touchdown.

The Argos are for real and the best team at this point in time in the CFL.
