TORONTO -- After winning their fourth game in a row and with the best record in the league, the Edmonton Eskimos find themselves at the top of the Nissan Titan Power Rankings.

  
Edmonton Eskimos
Week 6 Ranking: 1 (Last Week: 4)

The Eskimos find themselves in the number one spot after four convincing wins despite some questions at quarterback. Fueled by a dominant defence that is allowing the fewest yards per game, Edmonton has now won four games in a row and sits alone atop the CFL standings.

  
Calgary Stampeders
Week 6 Ranking: 2 (Last Week: 2)

The Stampeders simply find a way to get it done. Calgary rallied from a 17-0 first quarter deficit to top the Alouettes and limited them to just two points in the second half. The banged up offensive line allowed only two sacks in Week 6 which let Bo Levi Mitchell throw for over 300 yards. He hasn't been picked off in three weeks. 

  
Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Week 6 Ranking: 3 (Last Week: 5)
Knocking off the top team in the Nissan Titan Power Rankings is good enough reason to move up on the list. The Ticats jumped out to an early lead against the rival Argos and never looked back to remain undefeated at Tim Hortons Field. However, the team lost CJ Gable just as soon as he returned to the team but gained Luke Tasker, who had 73 receiving yards in the win.

  
Toronto Argonauts
Week 6 Ranking: 4 (Last Week: 1)
The Argonauts fall three spots after losing to the Ticats. While Toronto still remains in the upper-middle group of the standings, it may take a few more wins for the Argos to seperate themselves from the pack. Trevor Harris remains solid under centre and used nine different receivers on Monday night, a testament to his ability find his men downfield.

  
Montreal Alouettes
Week 6 Ranking: 5 (Last Week: 3)
Montreal blew a 17-0 first quarter lead and suddenly finds itself at the bottom of the East Divison. The Alouettes still look to be one of the better teams in the league but have yet to string together a few great games in a row.

  
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Week 6 Ranking: 6 (Last Week: 8)
Drew Willy proved just how crucial he is to the Bombers' success after throwing for a pair of touchdown passes and adding 72 yards on the ground. Winnipeg's defence has also been keeping the team in games but needs to improve in stopping the run. Darvin Adams has emerged as a weapon for the Bombers and his 56-yard score against the Lions helped prove that.

  
Ottawa REDBLACKS
Week 6 Ranking: 7 (Last Week: 7)

The REDBLACKS' ranking remains unchanged following the team's bye week. Ottawa has had an up and down season thus far but did pull off a momentum-building overtime victory over Calgary in Week 5. The team hosts the Alouettes in Week 7.

  
BC Lions
Week 6 Ranking: 8 (Last Week: 6)
There have been a few bright spots for the Lions this season including the healthy returns of Travis Lulay and Andrew Harris. However, the team's defence has regressed and allowed the most yards per game while Lulay has been inconsistent so far.

   
Saskatchewan Roughriders
Week 6 Ranking: 9 (Last Week: 9)
Saskatchewan only managed five points against a tough Eskimos defence while relying on its third-string quarterback. There has been a lack of stability at pivot because of injury and this latest loss featured only 50 rushing yards, which is normally a highlight of the team's offensive attack. The Roughriders are running out of time to turn it around.
