1) Calgary Stampeders
The Stamps lost 26-21 to a hot B.C. Lions team and the offense was a problem as Bo Levi Mitchell completed less than 50 percent of his passes.
2) Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Matt Nichols and the Blue Bombers have been rolling since coming off of their most recent bye week, and the rolling continued on Saturday against the Roughriders as they won their fourth game in a row with a 31-0 victory. The Bombers look poised to make a serious playoff run.
3) Saskatchewan Roughriders
The Riders got shut down in Winnipeg, but they have still been, outside of Calgary, the most consistent team in the CFL throughout this season.
4) BC Lions
The B.C. Lions came out on top against the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday night with a 26-21 road victory to keep their playoff hopes alive. Wally Buono’s final regular season game at McMahon Stadium was a success, and the Leos are now 8-7 and just one game behind the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after picking up their fifth win in six games. The Lions look intent to give Coach Wally Buono a proper send-off in his final season.
5) Hamilton Ti-Cats
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats put on an offensive showcase in their 34-20 road victory against the Toronto Argonauts on Friday night, with quarterback Jeremiah Masoli completing 70% of his passes for 338 yards and four touchdowns. The Ti-Cats are now in a first-place tie with the Redblacks.
6) Edmonton Eskimos
A dominant second half from the green-and-gold defense led the Edmonton Eskimos to a 34-16 victory over the visiting Ottawa REDBLACKS on Saturday afternoon at Commonwealth Stadium.
The Redblacks continued their inconsistent play, losing to the Edmonton Eskimos 34-16. The Redblacks are a talented team who just can’t seem to get it together for more than a week or two at a time.
8) Toronto Argonauts
The bottom two teams have been decided for this season.
9) Montreal Alouettes
The Alouettes will have a chance to get out of the basement this week.
