9) Ottawa Redblacks – After the Redblacks got taken to the woodshed by the Argonauts can there be any question about last place in these rankings?
8) Toronto Argonauts – The Toronto Argonauts used three quarterbacks to throw a combined five touchdown passes in a 39-9 home win over the lowly Redblacks on Saturday. Toronto outscored Ottawa 24-1 in the second half to take the season series and claim their fourth win of the season.
7) BC Lions – The Lions had a bye this week.
6) Edmonton Eskimos – Starting quarterback Trevor Harris returned to action and played well but did throw two interceptions, which is to be expected after a long layoff. With a healthy Harris back on the field, the Eskimos become a dangerous playoff opponent for anybody.
5) Montreal Alouettes – The Als seem to be preparing for the playoffs as Vernon Adams only played only a part of the first half, so I would not read too much into this game for them
4) Winnipeg Blue Bombers – The Bombers split the second of their two games with the Stampeders and look like they could be back on track to be a big-time Grey Cup challenger. Zach Collaros threw two touchdown passes and Justin Medlock kicked a game-winning field goal as time expired to give the Winnipeg Blue Bombers a 29-28 comeback win over the Calgary Stampeders on Friday night. Collaros threw for 221 yards while completing 22 of 28 passes in his first start with the Bombers, and Winnipeg is now 11-7 after taking the season series against Calgary. If Collaros can stay healthy the Bombers are a real threat.
3) Calgary Stampeders – The Stampeders lost a close one in Winnipeg, but they still are one of the teams to beat come playoff time, as usual.
2) Saskatchewan Roughriders – Brett Lauther kicked a 43-yard field goal in the final seconds to give the Saskatchewan Roughriders a 27-24 road win over the Edmonton Eskimos on Saturday night. The Riders are now 12-5 with a chance to host the Western Final if they beat Edmonton again in their regular season finale next week.
1) Hamilton Ti-Cats – The Ti-cats have been the unquestioned number one team in the CFL for a while and look like the favorites to win this year’s Grey Cup.
