The top 3 teams stay the same, but the Ottawa Redblacks are starting to look strong while the Elks stay at the bottom of this list.
The Elks stayed in the game until late as the defense played well, but once again, the offense was non-existent. QB Taylor Cornelius was as always inconsistent and threw two interceptions on the day.
Taylor Powell made his debut for the Ticats and scored late in the fourth quarter with a rushing touchdown, finishing 27-of-41 passes for 282 yards with one interception.
Toronto’s defense successfully limited running back James Butler to only 14 yards on the ground, forcing Powell to use aerial routes for most of the evening.
Hamilton’s offense had difficulty closing drives throughout much of the game, settling for three field goals from kicker Marc Liegghio as their record dropped to 2-4.
After losing QB Trevor Harris to injury, people wondered how the Riders would score points, and after this past weekend, the answer has still not come. The Riders’ defense was good enough to win, holding the BC Lions to 19 points, but the offense struggled all game long in a 19-9 loss.
Jake Maier registered a career-high 450 yards for four touchdowns and two interceptions for the Stampeders during their loss against Ottawa, while Marken Michel earned four receptions totalling 134 yards and two scores on four receptions for 134 yards and two scores. The Stamps defense let the game get away by allowing 43 points.
The Als had a bye week this past week.
The Ottawa REDBLACKS secured their first win in Calgary since 2019 by beating the Calgary Stampeders 43-41 in an exciting battle that went all the way through to overtime.
Dustin Crum, playing in his second consecutive overtime victory, amassed 257 passing yards and two touchdowns while adding 63 rushing yards on seven attempts.
Nate Behar’s fourth-quarter score and two-point conversion catch helped Ottawa seal their win as he recorded eight receptions for 81 yards and one touchdown from Justin Hardy – while also contributing an overtime two-point conversion catch of his own – contributing eight receptions with an 81-yard gain and touchdown catch himself.
Damon Webb led the REDBLACKS defensively with seven tackles and one sack while Brandin Dandridge and Alonzo Addae each recorded an interception for Ottawa in this victory.
The Blue Bombers beat the winless Edmonton Elks, but it was much more challenging than people expected it to be. The Bombers did not put the game away until the 4th quarter, when they scored 15 points to put the game away.
BC’s defensive unit held Saskatchewan Roughriders to no majors during a 19-9 win at BC Place on Saturday.
Garry Peters and Jalon Edwards-Cooper each added one interception in the fourth quarter to keep BC out of the end zone all game long, allowing only one touchdown in three home games this season.
Vernon Adams Jr. was injured early in the first quarter after taking a brutal sack by Riders defensive lineman Pete Robertson and had to be replaced by Dane Evans. Dane completed two touchdown passes – including one to wide receiver Alexander Hollins and an interception for good measure as the Lions improved to 5-1 on their record, with veteran kicker Sean Whyte contributing four field goals and a point after kick.
On Friday at Tim Hortons Field in Toronto, the Argonauts defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 31-15, scoring late touchdowns to put away each game – such as when Toronto’s pivot scored against Montreal Alouettes the week prior.
Kelly connected for touchdowns with wide receivers Kurleigh Gittens Jr. and DaVaris Daniels as the Argos raced to an early 20-3 advantage before adding one more major on the ground late in the fourth quarter, after the Ticats had narrowed to within one possession, to seal an impressive road win.
The quarterback recorded his second 300-yard game of the season with 20-of-27 completions for 306 yards on 27 attempts.
Running back AJ Ouellette amassed 84 yards on ten carries, while Cameron Dukes scored on an early first-quarter quarterback sneak. Toronto now has 12 rushing touchdowns this year – three more than they achieved all year in 2022!
