Week 15 Ranking: 1
With a comfortable lead atop the West Division, the Calgary Stampeders enjoyed their Thanksgiving weekend off. That should help Bo Levi Mitchell and Jon Cornish come back fully healed, and ready for the stretch drive as the playoffs enter sight.
Week 15 Ranking: 2
The Eskimos made an important statement over the weekend with a decisive win over the Bombers on Thanksgiving Monday. The offence was balanced and the defence made plays, as the Green and Gold showed why it should be taken seriously as a contender.
Week 15 Ranking: 5
The Argos saved their best football for the last few minutes of the game, but that bottled up electricity at the Rogers Centre was something special. Ricky Ray led a long touchdown drive, then hit Owens on the deep corner route for a game-winning touchdown as impressive as any.
Week 15 Ranking: 3
The Ticats will get many more chances to move back ahead of their provincial rival, but for now drop a spot after a heart-breaking loss to the Argos. Hamilton was the better team throughout most of the game, and will have to prove that last weekend's loss was an aberration.
Week 15 Ranking: 6
A massive home win over the Roughriders has the Alouettes on the move once again, as they now sit 5-1 with Jonathan Crompton as their starting quarterback. They continue to prove they're for real, and now they're on a collision course with the Argos next weekend in a battle for first place.
Week 15 Ranking: 7
BC's defence hasn't allowed a touchdown in three full games now, while the offence seems to be back on track after a huge breakout performance against the Ottawa REDBLACKS. The bye week should do wonders for this injury-riddled team ahead of the all-important final stretch.
Week 15 Ranking: 4
The Riders were given the benefit of the doubt recently, but a lopsided loss to Montreal has them moving down. With a strong defence and running game, this is still a Grey Cup-contending team -- but it could really use Darian Durant back under centre before the season is through.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Week 15 Ranking: 8
A switch from Nic Grigsby at running back to Paris Cotton didn't seem to help, as the Bombers were overwhelmed by the Eskimos' elite defence. Now two games back of the Lions, the Bombers must come out strong at home next weekend against the first-place Stampeders.
Week 15 Ranking: 9
Coming off an impressive win over the Bombers the week before, the REDBLACKS took a step back in a road loss to BC. The offence moved the ball all throughout, but just couldn't find ways to finish against that elite number one BC defence. A solid test against the Ticats at Tim Horton's Field is next.
