Saskatchewan Roughriders (7-1-0)
Another week, another win for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. While it may have been a little more difficult than they would have preferred, the Riders received a massive performance from Korey Sheets - who eclipsed the millennium mark after just eight games - and Darian Durant - who has yet to throw an interception this season. All systems go in Riderville.
Calgary Stampeders (6-2-0)
We think it's safe to say that last week's trip to Toronto was a lot more pleasant than their voyage last November. Down two key offensive starters in Jon Cornish and Nik Lewis, the Stamps showed the defending champs who's boss and put in one of their most balanced outings of the season. If they keep this up, a move to the top is a significant possibility.
Toronto Argonauts (5-3-0)
The Argos slip one spot after a tough loss to the guys listed right above them. Could things have been different if Ricky Ray had played the entire game? While there's no way to know for sure, the Argos will now shift their attention back to their own division where a crucial home-and-home stand with the Alouettes awaits.
BC Lions (5-3-0)
BC moves to the cleanup-spot after losing a hearbreaker to Montreal. There's definitely no need to panic in BC, but it might be time to figure things out before they get out of hand. The offence failed to take advantage of numerous turnovers commited by Montreal, but did show flashes of their usual selves at certain points of the game. Will a loss to Hamilton force Wally Buono and Mike Benevides to make some changes?
Hamilton Tiger-Cats (4-4-0)
The Tiger-Cats were able to take care of business against the Blue Bombers in Weeks 8 and 9 and are riding a massive wave of momentum all the way to BC. Henry Burris has been his old gunslinging self, while the defence appears to have found a rhythm to move with. They've arrived at the corner, now all they need to do is turn it.
Montreal Alouettes (3-5-0)
Their dramatic win over the Lions has propelled them up to number six, but where would they have been had Eric Deslauriers dropped that Hail Mary bomb from Tanner Marsh? Forunately for Montreal that didn't happen, but the Als can't rely on that type of play against their next opponents - the division-leading Toronto Argonauts. We don't think we need to tell anyone how huge the upcoming home-and-home between the Als and Argos is for the fate of the East Division.
Edmonton Eskimos (1-7-0)
Close but no cigar appears to be the theme in Edmonton these days. The Green and Gold have been playing well, as made evident by the fact that they've lost their last four games by a combined 12 points. If Mike Reilly continues to play a this level, these tight losses will eventually become wins for the Eskimos. But until then, they sit at seventh.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1-7-0)
Sidelined with an injured hand, the Max Hall experiment appears to be on hold in Winnipeg. As does the Buck Pierce project. Does Justin Goltz reclaim his spot under centre? What does Tim Burke have to do to get his team going?
