Toronto Argonauts (8-4-0)
They say you have to beat the best to be the best. So that's exactly what the Toronto Argonauts did in Week 13 against the Calgary Stampeders - Week 12's number one team. Thanks to yet another late-game comeback, Zach Collaros and the Argos created some much needed distance between themselves and the rest of the pack in the East Division.
Calgary Stampeders (9-3-0)
Unable to hold onto the top spot in this week's rankings after staking claim to the coveted position for the last two weeks, the Stamps dip down to number two after failing to match Toronto's fourth-quarter output, en-route to their first loss in over a month. Next week they hit the road to Guelph, where a hungry Tiger-Cats squad awaits.
BC Lions (8-4-0)
Down Travis Lulay and big-play receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux, the Lions waltzed into Mosaic Stadium and escaped with a narrow - yet thrilling - victory over the Roughriders. Thomas DeMarco had his moments under centre, but came up in the clutch when it mattered most. He'll look to duplicate his performance next week in another hostile environment - Winnipeg's Investors Group Field.
Saskatchewan Roughriders (8-4-0)
What's going on in Riderville? In their last three games, the Riders have come up short against the likes of Thomas DeMarco's Lions, Zach Collaros' Argos and Justin Goltz's Bombers - an alarming trend to say the least. In Week 14, they'll escape Saskatchewan for a bit in favour of Quebec, where they'll face off against the Als on Sunday.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats (6-6-0)
The Ticats were impressive once again in their East Coast home, downing the Alouettes 28-26 in Touchdown Atlantic. A massive test awaits them this week, as the angry Stampeders come to town. Will the Ticats finally be able to get over the .500 hump?
Edmonton Eskimos (3-9-0)
They needed a little bit of extra time, but Mike Reilly and the Eskimos registered their first two-game win streak of the season last week, coming out on top of a 35-27 overtime decision over the Bombers. With the win, the Esks got themselves right back into the post-season picture. While they'll be in tough against the Argos this week, you can be sure they have their Week 15 contest with the Als circled on their calendars.
Montreal Alouettes (4-8-0)
With their third-straight loss, the Als' playoff hopes continue to hang in the balance. While their defence has done a good job of maintaining their level of personel success, the same can't be said for their offence, as the group has often appeared flat and out of synch.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2-10-0)
The Bombers let one slip away on Friday Night Football in dramatic fashion. It will be interesting to see how they rebound this week against the Lions, where a familiar face in Buck Pierce might see some action in his former town.
