1) Calgary Stampeders
Stamps quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell eclipsed the 350-yard mark for the first time in 2018, completing 19 of 31 passes for 370 yards and a touchdown. With that being said, defense was the order of the day for the Stampeders as they once again played well and held an opponent under 20 points.
Mike Reilly came through once again for Edmonton to lock up his 50th career win. The league’s leading passer threw for 257 yards and a touchdown and added the game-winning rushing touchdown in the final minutes. The Eskimos defense once again played well and they are looking like a serious contender.
The Blue Bombers were on their bye week this week. If they can be consistent from here on out they could be the biggest contender to the dominant Stampeders.
The Ti-Cats romped early, notching the first of four Manziel interceptions on the quarterback’s second pass of the game. Before he could even get settled in he was facing a four-score deficit when the opening frame was complete. A win over the Alouettes is nothing big for any team at the moment but the Ti-Cats did completely dominate the game.
The Redblacks coughed up a 24-point lead at Toronto and serious concerns have to exist with the Redblacks’ defense. Luckily the Alouettes are coming to town next.
Zach Collaros looked solid in his return to action after being sidelined since Week 2, finishing 22 of 34 for 261 yards and a touchdown. But it was not enough to overcome Mike Reilly and the Eskimos. With Collaros back and a solid defense, the Roughriders looked poised to make some noise in the CFL.
The Lions lost to Calgary, but who doesn’t lose to Calgary? Travis Lulay played well and the Lions overall seem to be much better than they were a month ago.
Trailing by 24 points in the third quarter at home on Thursday night, the Toronto Argonauts were well on their way to their sixth loss in seven games to kick off 2018. But an exhilarating second-half comeback led by quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, starting his first CFL game, may have saved the defending Grey Cup champions’ season.
No doubt about who is last in the CFL.
