The Blue Bombers are flying high above everyone else in the CFL once again.

Following an unexpected two-game losing streak to the Ticats and Argos, Winnipeg won the West Division showdown against Calgary to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the 3DownNation power rankings. It was a narrow victory without Bo Levi Mitchell in the lineup for the Stampeders, but enough to satisfy our rankers for now.

The power rankings are done by having 3Down contributors rank each team from No. 1 to No. 9. The team with the fewest “points” gets the top ranking with each subsequent club receiving rankings two through nine. The previous week’s rankings are listed in brackets.

5. Edmonton Eskimos (2)

C.J. Gable changes the entire look of Edmonton’s offence. Resting Gable against Toronto was smart for the long run.

6. Montreal Alouettes (6)

No VA, no way. The Alouettes need Vernon Adams Jr. at quarterback.

8. Toronto Argonauts (8)

McLeod Bethel-Thompson is looking to keep the Argos starting QB job. What does he do for an encore after the comeback win against Winnipeg?

9. B.C. Lions (9)

B.C. and Mike Reilly are in a world of hurt, but there’s still time for a turnaround.
