9) Toronto Argonauts
Any question about this after a 55-8 loss to the BC Lions? An Argos team that showed a ton of fight over the previous two months looks like they have shut it down for the season.
8) Ottawa Redblacks
This is another team that seems to be at the point of just mailing it in.
7) Edmonton Eskimos
Still no Trevor Harris and Logan Kilgore threw 3 INTs filling in for him. Without Harris the Eskimos are in big trouble. They should still make the playoffs but power rankings wise the Lions are playing better right now.
6) BC Lions
Unlike the two teams listed lower than them, the Lions are coming on strong as they have now won four in a row. They keep their slim playoff hopes alive following a 55-8 win over the Toronto Argonauts Saturday night at BC Place.
5) Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Turnovers did the Blue Bombers in and with Matt Nichols out for the season a once-promising year for Winnipeg is looking more and more like a lost opportunity.
4) Calgary Stampeders
The Stampeders lost a tough one at Montreal. Even with Bo Levi Mitchell at the helm there some shortcomings in Calgary that are going to need fixing if they want to win a Grey Cup.
3) Montreal Alouettes
The Alouettes made a huge statement to the rest of the CFL this past week and that statement is a resounding we are for real! The Montreal Alouettes’ defence had three forced fumbles, an interception, and two sacks to help them come out with a 21-17 victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday. Vernon Adams Jr. played well enough to win, throwing for 206 yards while completing 18 of 29 passes on the game.
2) Saskatchewan Roughriders
The Riders are coming! Three key turnovers and a big game from Shaq Evans led the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a 21-6 home win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday night. The Riders improved their record to 10-4 and now hold sole possession of first place in the West after winning nine of their last 10. The Riders defence has been stellar and the offense is solid, which should make this team a tough out come playoff time for anybody.
1) Hamilton Ti-Cats
Dane Evans can no longer be classified as a backup quarterback as he continues to play as well as any quarterback in the CFL. Evans threw a pair of touchdowns to help give the Hamilton Tiger-Cats a 42-12 win over the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday night. The Tabbies remain perfect at home and now hold a 12-3 record.
