The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / CFL Power Rankings Week 8

CFL Power Rankings Week 8

1) Calgary Stampeders

The Calgary Stampeders held off the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ comeback attempt and improved their record to 6-0 with a 34-22 road victory on Saturday night. Bo Levi Mitchell threw for three touchdowns and Terry Williams added a key 78-yard punt return touchdown as the team continued their undefeated start. The Stamps are head and shoulders above the rest of the league at this moment, and it will take somebody playing an almost perfect game to beat them right now.

Next Up: Host BC Lions

 

2) Ottawa Redblacks

The REDBLACKS came out on the winning end with a 21-15 victory in a game that saw no touchdowns scored until two minutes remained in the fourth quarter. The Redblacks are undefeated when not playing the Stamps and the defense continues to shine.

Next Up: @Toronto Argonauts

 

3) Edmonton Eskimos

Everybody tuned in to see if Johnny Manziel would play, but what they saw instead was  Mike Reilly throw for 415 yards and four touchdowns, adding another on the ground. C.J. Gable made a highlight-reel catch to propel the Edmonton Eskimos to their fourth win of the season on Thursday night, 44-23.

Next Up: Host Saskatchewan Roughriders

 

4) Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers completed their back-to-back sweep of the Toronto Argonauts with a convincing 40 to 14 victory on Friday night. Winnipeg QB Matt Nichols threw for 253 yards and two touchdowns as the Bombers moved above .500 for the first time this season. The Bombers may be the second best team in the CFL. The only thing they have lacked so far is consistency, and that might be taking shape now.

Next Up: Bye

 

5) Saskatchewan Roughriders

The Riders fought back to within five points after Calgary stormed out to a 24-0 lead in the opening quarter, but the Stamps held on and found a way to secure the win. Charleston Hughes stepped up against his former team with two sacks and defensive end Tobi Antigha also added a 52-yard pick-six for Saskatchewan. The Riders have played well the last few weeks and look like they may be able to keep it together until QB Zach Collaros gets back.

Next Up: @Edmonton Eskimos

 

6) Hamilton Ti-Cats

Jeremiah Masoli did manage to throw for 158 yards in the opening half of play while completing 14 of his 20 pass attempts, but the REDBLACKS defense managed to seize any forward progress when it came to the red zone, including putting ample amount of pressure on Masoli, giving up five sacks to the REDBLACKS. The Ti-Cats offensive line must play better if they are to right the ship.

Next Up: @Montreal Alouettes

 

7) BC Lions

Bye Week

Next Up: @Calgary Stampeders

 

8) Toronto Argonauts

The Argonauts are lucky the Alouettes are as bad as they are, because the Argos are, to say the least, struggling right now.

Next Up: Host Ottawa Redblacks

 

9) Montreal Alouettes

With Johnny Manziel now on board the Als could be at least interesting to watch as soon as they insert him in the lineup.

Next Up: Host Hamilton Ti-Cats
