Checking Down: News and notes from Week 9

TORONTO — Week 9 of CFL action is nearly upon us, and there is an abundance of storylines to get excited about across the CFL. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers remain undefeated, the Ottawa REDBLACKS will look to extend their winning ways, and we finally get our first taste of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Toronto Argonauts rivalry in 2022. And we can’t to forget about the Montreal Alouettes serving 1.2 kilograms of poutine out of a replica helmet this week.
