Saskatchewan Roughriders @ Winnipeg Blue Bombers

The 6-8 Saskatchewan Roughriders traveled to Winnipeg Friday to take on the 1st place Blue Bombers. The Riders are desperate for a cross-over playoff berth, but would have to overcome the firepower of the Bombers to improve their chances. Saskatchewan did have a 17-10 lead early in the game after a QB Cody Fajardo TD run, but then Calgary took over. The Stamps defense forced 6 turnovers, including a fumble and 2 interceptions. Calgary QB Zach Collaros took advantage of these possessions passing for 4 TD’s, leading his team to a 31-13 win. Winnipeg climbs to 2nd, while the Riders remain at 7th in the PR’s.

Ottawa Redblacks @ BC Lions

The 9-4 Lions hosted the 3-10 Ottawa Redblacks at BC Place this week. The BC Lions are still in a hot contest for a home field advantage in the playoffs, this game is of great significance. Lions QB Vernon Adams turned it up a notch with 305 yards passing, with a 77% completion rate and 2 TD’s against zero interceptions. The Redblacks defense was no match for the onslaught, and the BC Lions win the match 34-19. The Lions were a heavy favorite to win, and so the PR’s remain the same with BC in 5th and Ottawa at 9th.

Montreal Alouettes @ Edmonton Elks

The playoff hopeful 6-7 Montreal Allouettes traveled to Edmonton on Saturday, to take on the hapless 4-10 Edmonton Elks. Turnovers would be the difference maker in this battle, in particular the 100 yard Pick-Six by Montreal LB Tyrice Beverette . Elks QB Taylor Cornelius did put up almost 100 more yards passing than his Alouette’s counter-part, QB Trevor Harris. But the deciding factor between the QB’s performances was the TD:INT ratios of 1:0 and 0:2 for Harris and Cornelius respectively. The Alouettes won the contest 25-18 and keep their 1st place division hopes alive. Montreal remains 4th in the PR’s, while Edmonton stays at 8th place.

Toronto Argonauts @ Calgary Stampeders

The 7-6 Toronto Argonauts are still clinging to 1st place in the East Division, and make their way to McMahon Stadium to face the 9-5 Calgary Stampeders. The Stamps are already guaranteed a playoff spot and would like to have a home field advantage over the Lions. This game was all Calgary, as Toronto failed to provide any momentum or offense in a 29-2 domination. Both teams QB’s were intercepted twice, but Stampeders QB Jake Maier connected with WR Reggie Beggelton for a TD. Calgary RB Ka’Deem Carey added 92 yards of rushing offense and a TD of his of his own. With the convincing win, Calgary climbs back into 1st while Toronto drops to 3rd in the PR’s.
