TORONTO -- The race in the East got even tighter in Week 10, how do the Nissan Titan Power Rankings shake out?
Week 10 Ranking: 1 (Last Week: 2)
Don't look now, but the Stampeders suddenly have sole possession of first place in the standings and are winners of four straight games. Calgary has been rolling and its defence, which now ranks second overall, limited the Bombers to 175 yards on offence.
Week 10 Ranking: 2 (Last Week: 1)
The Ticats drop out of the top spot after losing their first game at Tim Hortons Field. Zach Collaros had a solid game, throwing for just under 300 yards and a touchdown. Hamilton remains a threat to win the Grey Cup and the loss is merely a bump in the road.
Week 10 Ranking: 3 (Last Week: 4)
A pair of rookies are leading the way for the Eskimos. James Franklin shined in his first career start and wideout Derel Walker already ranks 11th on the receiving yards list after just three games. Edmonton appears to have solved its offensive struggles and could be the league's most complete team when adding its defence into the equation.
Week 10 Ranking: 4 (Last Week: 3)
Unlike previous weeks, the Argonauts could not rally from a late deficit to record a win. The team gave up 21 points in the fourth quarter while being limited to 15 points against a stingy Eskimos defence. Toronto's next two games against Hamilton will determine who sits in the first in the East.
Week 10 Ranking: 5 (Last Week: 5)
The REDBLACKS enter their bye week riding a wave of momentum after breaking open offensively against the Riders. There appeared to be a cloud of uncertainty surrounding the team's running back situation following the release of Chevon Walker but Jeremiah Johnson ended the debate by rushing for three touchdowns.
Week 10 Ranking: 6 (Last Week: 6)
Jim Popp notched a win in his first game since taking over head coaching duties, one that handed the Ticats their first defeat at Tim Hortons Field. The Alouettes offence rolled without lead back Tyrell Sutton and missed Rakeem Cato for the majority of the game but Tanner Marsh was able to orchestrate the team to victory.
Week 10 Ranking: 7 (Last Week: 7)
The Lions have struggled with consistency and need to put together some strong games beginning on Mark's Labour Day Weekend. BC still remains in the thick of the playoff race in the West but have to take advantage of the upcoming weeks.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Week 10 Ranking: 8 (Last Week: 8)
Mike O'Shea has thrown his support behind Robert Marve as the Bombers' quarterback until Drew Willy returns. However, the offence didn't manage to get much going against the Stampeders. Winnipeg is hoping that back-to-back matchups against the Riders can help end its skid.
Week 10 Ranking: 9 (Last Week: 9)
The wheels came off quickly for Saskatchewan after entering halftime trailing 14-10. It was felt that a shakeup was needed following the loss as the club parted ways with both its general manager and head coach. Time is running out for the Riders this season and the next two games against the Bombers are crucial.
