Another week has come and gone in the CFL, and the Calgary Stampeders have finally lost their first game of the 2018 season. Normally, I would move the Riders instantly to the top for “beating the best” but let’s face it – Calgary is still the measuring stick of the CFL. Let’s take a look at who moved where and why.
Montreal holds fast at the number 9 spot, as they look to eliminate themselves from playoff contention before September comes to a close. I really hope the Alouettes win at least another game this season, because I really don’t want the Riders to be the “1” in “1-17” again like they were in 2003.
Toronto jumped from 8 to 6 on the back of a 24-23 win over the BC Lions. That was a game the Argos absolutely needed to win, to keep the crossover talk at bay for at least another few weeks. The loss in this one dropped BC down to 7th after their recent rise.
Winnipeg took a tumble after their loss to the REDBLACKS at home on Friday night. Meanwhile, the REDBLACKS jumped from 5 to 3 on the back of their dominating win. The REDBLACKS are the clear favourites to win the East at the halfway point of their season.
Saskatchewan jumped up 2 spots to the number 4 spot after a dominating home win over the Calgary Stampeders, who hadn’t lost following a bye week in their previous 17 games. Saskatchewan got quality play from all 3 sides in their 40-27 win on Sunday night. A win in BC this upcoming week could vault Saskatchewan back up into the discussion or a home playoff game.
