CFL Week 10 Power Rankings

Now that the two bye weeks are finished we’re going to be back to normal here at SportsUntapped. With the Labour Day weekend around the corner, it’s time to take a look at the power rankings for week 10 in the CFL. There aren’t many changes for the power rankings this week although I’m pleased to announce that the Argonauts are back in the top 3.

• Calgary Stampeders (7-1) have now won 5 games in a row and have grown a comfortable lead in the West. In week 9 the Stamps played the Lions and won the game 48-35 in a shootout. I was surprised to see so many points in the game, but it didn’t surprise me that the Stampeders won the game by 10+ points. Burris threw 3 INT’s in the game and only 2 TD’s, but he should be able to bounce back this week against the Eskimos.

• Montreal Alouettes (6-2) won their week 8 game 39-17 against the Blue Bombers, but Calvillo was injured and isn’t expected to return to the line-up yet. Leak is the Alouettes back-up QB and in the 2nd half he looked alright, as he threw 10 completions on 15 attempts for 99 yards and 1 INT. He was unable to throw any TD’s in the game and I’m sure fans in Montreal are worried about Leak leading the Als into the playoffs.

• Toronto Argonauts (5-3) lost in week 8 to Hamilton 16-12 in a really boring game. Lemon went 18 for 31 through the air for 208 yards and 0 INT’s, but he also ended the game with 0 TD’s. Boyd also looked good, as he ran for 81 yards on 16 carries in week 8. Boyd continues to lead the league in rushing yards this season and his lead has been consistently growing the past few weeks.

• Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-3) lost this past week against the Eskimos 17-14 and have dropped one spot in my power rankings this week. The Argos lost to the Tiger-Cats in week 8, but I feel that the Roughrider’s loss against Edmonton is much worse. Saskatchewan started the game last week by opening up a 14-0 lead, but the Eskimos shutdown the Roughriders offence the rest of the game and scored 17 unanswered points to win the game.

• Hamilton Tiger-Cats (4-4) could have been higher on our power rankings if it weren’t for the bad start that they had in the beginning of the season. They have now won 3 games in a row and will have a chance to beat the Argos for the 2nd time in a row this coming week. Glenn looked good in week 8 against Toronto, as he completed 25 of 36 passes for 247 yards. One problem was that he didn’t throw any TD’s and had 1 INT in the game.

• Edmonton Eskimos (2-6) looked good last week in the final 3 quarters of the game, as they managed to beat the tough Roughriders team 17-14. Ricky Ray and Zabransky received playing time in the game and both could have done better, as they both threw interceptions. The Eskimos are looking to finish the season on a good note and should have momentum heading into Calgary for Labour Day Weekend although it won’t be easy to beat the 1st place team.

• Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2-6) have now lost 4 games in a row after losing to the Alouettes in week 8. Winnipeg hasn’t looked good at all recently and part of the problem was because their QB situation. The defence has given up the 2nd amount of points in the league as well this season, which hasn’t helped the offence one bit. Winnipeg will play against the Roughriders this week and I’m sure Saskatchewan will have revenge on their mind after losing last week.

• B.C. Lions (1-7) don’t look like they’re going to get anything going this year. Casey Printers was back this week, but he only went 10 for 26 through the air with 191 yards and 1 TD. His performance wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t enough to life his team to a victory against the Stampeders.
