Time for the playoffs!
After going home early one year ago, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are back in the CFL post-season party and they'll visit Calgary's house in the Western Semi-Final Sunday afternoon.
The Riders learned late-Friday night that they would face Calgary in Round 1 after the Stampeders' Week 19 win in Edmonton. That rendered Saturday's Rider game in BC meaningless which is a good thing because the Riders lost 17-6, their fourth loss in a row.
"My first thought was people talked about whether it's better to go East or West in the playoffs but I think there was a stretch in the season where we played Calgary, BC and then went to Toronto," Rider head coach Corey Chamblin said confidently.
"I told you we'd do it (win them all). t's one of those things where it just solidified what we thought and it happened that way."
Oh my what a fun week this is going to be! The Riders feel like they have a home playoff game because Rider Nation habitually takes over McMahon
