Calgary Stampeders
Week 16 Ranking: 1
Getting closer to full strength, the Stampeders didn't take long after the bye to flex their muscles. Bo Levi Mitchell threw two first-quarter touchdowns in his return to action, leading the Stamps to the win and clinching first in the West Division. 

Edmonton Eskimos
Week 16 Ranking: 2
The Eskimos have endured some ups and downs during the second half of this season, but Sunday's road win over Saskatchewan was full of character and could serve as a rallying point in the season. The Esks pulled off the comeback and now are on their way to hosting a home playoff game.

Montreal Alouettes
Week 16 Ranking: 5
Now are people ready to jump on the Alouette bandwagon? The Alouettes feasted on a quality opponent in Ricky Ray and the Argos, while Jonathan Crompton did enough to continue his winning ways as the Alouettes continue their second-half roll. 

Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Week 16 Ranking: 4
The Ticats stay exactly where they were after a winning performance against the Ottawa REDBLACKS that was solid but unspectacular. The defence was outstanding once again, while Collaros put just enough points on the board to keep the Tabbies unbeaten at Tim Horton's Field

Toronto Argonauts
Week 16 Ranking: 3

A disappointing showing at home in a battle for first against the Alouettes sees the Argos drop to five, after Ricky Ray couldn't muster anything against a stingy Alouette defence. The Boatmen will look to rally with a must-win game against the Ticats at home next weekend.

BC Lions
Week 16 Ranking: 6

The Lions enjoyed a much-needed bye in Week 17, getting a chance to heal up and get re-focused before an all-important three-game stretch to end the season. The defence has gone three straight games without allowing a touchdown, while the offence appears to be heating up at just the right time.

Saskatchewan Roughriders
Week 16 Ranking: 7

The Riders' stock is on the way up after a much-improved performance at home against the Eskimos on Sunday, but without the win it wasn't enough to move them ahead of idle BC. Kerry Joseph seemed to bring a much-needed boost to the Rider offence.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Week 16 Ranking: 8
The result wasn't what the Bombers hoped for against Calgary, but the team showed plenty of life in battling back from a two-score deficit to nearly stun the first-place Stampeders. Paris Cotton had two touchdowns last game and looks to be making an impact.

Week 16 Ranking: 9
In a tough road test against the Ticats, unbeaten this season at Tim Horton's Field, the REDBLACKS battled hard and made it a close game right up until the very end. Ottawa will play spoiler down the stretch and will get a large say in who goes where in the East Division playoff picture.
