Last game: 17-3 win over Montreal Next game: Vs. Calgary, Fri. July 7
Worth noting: The Bombers drop a spot in light of the Lions’ convincing win over them a week ago. As most expected, Mike O’Shea’s team got back on track in a soggy, patience-testing game in Montreal. With a balanced offence (185 rushing yards, 177 passing yards) and two sacks allowed, the Bombers held control of this game essentially all night. Sure, they had four turnovers, but so did the Als; we’ll chalk most of that up to the conditions at Molson Percival Stadium.
6. Calgary Stampeders (1-2)
Last week: 6
Last game: 29-26 OT loss to Saskatchewan (Week 3)
Next game: At Winnipeg, Fri. July 7
Worth noting: The Stamps have been extremely unlucky on the injury front, but have been proactive in dealing with it. The return of receiver Marken Michel softens the loss of Malik Henry, and the removal of Reggie Begelton from the six-game injured list is some welcome encouraging news. The Stamps will need to be sharp this week as they come out of their bye and head into IG Field to face the Bombers.
Just so we’re clear, in no way do I expect my team to win this…that would be a miracle…I see they’re up by 10 but that’s not staying around I suspect….(mostly because I’m watching now and I am a curse to my teams)…
