The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been eliminated from CFL playoff contention.
The Ottawa Redblack’s come-from-behind 33-32 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders combined with the Ticats loss to Calgary earlier Friday means Hamilton can no longer qualify for the post-season.
Much like the Ticats loss to the Stamps earlier Friday, Ottawa’s win came in improbable fashion.
The Redblacks trailed by 12 points with just over six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and needed a fake punt, a roughing the passer call, two third down conversions and a pass interference penalty in the end zone to score two touchdowns and win the game.
Ticats receiver Shamawd Chambers summed it up for fans.
Well this sucks
