Here's one:

Winnipeg, Saskatchewan, Montreal and Ottawa are only ONE game out from their 2019 win/loss totals. In this group only Saskatchewan is ONE game ahead. :face_with_monocle:

And Winnipeg (5-1 in 2019, 6-1 in 2021)

Ohhh missed that one.

Scary thought... Matt Nichols was 5-1 at the beginning of 2019 when he suffered that season ending injury. Maybe I wasn't supposed to explore this point in time too closely. Yikes. :hot_face:

Saskatchewan’s Cody Fajardo has 22 career starts and owns a record of 16-6 (.727).

4 of those 6 loses are against the Bombers. Where his TD - interception ratio is 2-8.

In other news, since joining the Bombers, Zach Collaros is 10-1 (.909).
