The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 2017 Weekly CFL Power Rankings Week 20

2017 Weekly CFL Power Rankings Week 20

CFL Power Rankings Week 20
Publish Date: 10/28/2017
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

A tumultuous week for one team – the Winnipeg Blue Bombers – will likely ripple through the CFL playoffs, and certainly does through the last of the Grueling Truth’s weekly CFL power rankings. Get ready for the playoffs!

1) Calgary Stampeders – The Stamps will enter the playoffs at number one no matter what they do in the last three weeks. They have been the best team all year long and a letup in the last few weeks is to be expected.

Next up: host Winnipeg Blue Bombers

2) Saskatchewan Roughriders – The Saskatchewan Roughriders rolled to their tenth win of the season in style on Friday night, handing the Montreal Alouettes a 37-12 loss at Mosaic Stadium. The Riders have now won two in a row, and they are playing as good if not better than everybody else in the CFL.

Next up: host Edmonton Eskimos

3) Edmonton Eskimos – The Eskimos have played much better as of late and with Mike Reilly at the helm the Eskimos are a dangerous out in the playoffs. I don’t read too much into a win over a disinterested Calgary, but the Eskimos are starting to play well at the right time.

Next up: at Saskatchewan Roughriders

4) Winnipeg Blue Bombers – Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback Matt Nichols left Saturday’s loss against the BC Lions in the first half with a lower-body injury. The veteran quarterback appeared to suffer the injury to his left leg on a non-contact play while throwing a pass.

The Bombers are not playing well at the moment. The question is can they get the ship headed in the right direction in the next two weeks? The bigger question here is how bad is Nichols’ injury?

Next up: at Calgary Stampeders

5) Ottawa Redblacks – Playing from behind for much of the game, the REDBLACKS overcame five offensive turnovers to defeat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 41-36, thanks in part to nearly 500 all-purpose yards from SB Diontae Spencer and two-touchdown performances from RB William Powell and WR Juron Criner. Quarterback Trevor Harris threw an uncharacteristic three interceptions in the win, but the Redblacks are a contender with a healthy Harris in the lineup.

Next up: bye

6) Toronto Argonauts – The Argos were off this week, but a win next week clinches the Eastern Division.

Next up: at BC Lions

7) Hamilton Tiger-Cats – The Ti-Cats lost a heart-breaker this past weekend, but since the arrival of new head coach June Jones, things are definitely trending upwards in Hamilton.

Next up: host Montreal Alouettes

8) B.C. Lions – The Lions finally got back in the win column this past weekend, but it is still too little too late for a very talented roster that came up short this year.

Next up: host Toronto Argonauts

9) Montreal Alouettes – Nothing has changed since last week, they still suck.

Next up: at Hamilton Ti-Cats
