Undefeated Edmonton and defeated many times Hamilton are both ranked accordingly.
Everything in between is where it gets fun.
1. Edmonton Eskimos (last week 1)
Even with more injuries piling up, Edmonton put together an impressive win against B.C. who entered on a four-game win streak of their own. It was tied at 20 and the Esks rolled off 17 straight points to take control and remain perfect.
2. Calgary Stampeders (last week 3)
The Stamps absolutely dismantled a Ticats team that looked more like kitties at McMahon Stadium. Each unit (offence, defence and special teams) scored touchdowns for Calgary and Andrew Buckley looked sharp in the second half.
3. B.C. Lions (last week 2)
The Lions couldn’t slow down Mike Reilly and the Eskimos red hot offence or keep up with them either. Travis Lulay guided B.C. to 10 quick points to begin the third quarter, but Edmonton dominated late in the game once again.
4. Winnipeg Blue Bombers (last week 5)
Some Bomber fans found out about the improbable comeback while in their cars or on the way home, leaving the stadium early with Winnipeg down 12 and 1:40 left on the clock. Never leave a CFL game that’s within two scores.
5. Toronto Argonauts (last week 4)
If you stare at the rankings long enough maybe the Argos will change positions, likely drop lower like the Johnny Sears Jr. play that cost Toronto a chance to tie or win the contest in Regina.
6. Saskatchewan Roughriders (last week 8)
Duron Carter’s remarkable backhanded, one-hand touchdown grab is still reverberating around, Saskatchewan, Canada and North America. That could very well end up being the catch of the year.
7. Ottawa Redblacks (last week 7)
Technically it was a bye week for Ottawa, but after the Redblacks did play two games in Week 5. That rest should serve a tired group well.
8. Montreal Alouettes (last week 6)
Darian Durant and the offence put up 40 points – Als best performance by far this season – but that effort was squandered in the final 100 seconds.
9. Hamilton Tiger-Cats (last week 9)
After a 60-1 beatdown in Cowtown, Hamilton is left searching – desperately – for answers.
