The Stampeders are coming back home following a tough loss on the road to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Backup Nick Arbuckle started his second game of the season and threw for 368 yards in the loss.

Toronto is still searching for its first win of the year, and following a promising Week 4 outing against BC, they were on the wrong end of a 48-21 scoreline against Winnipeg in Week 5. They’ve been outscored 162-59 over their first four games of the year and are headed into McMahon Stadium aiming to avoid an 0-5 start.

OTT at WPG
It’s been a perfect start to the season for Winnipeg. Matt Nichols tossed a trio of touchdowns against Toronto in Week 5 and Andrew Harris ran for 116 yards on 14 carries. They’re atop the league standings and have a chance to improve to 5-0 on Friday.
The Eskimos are coming into this game on the heels of a shutdown defensive performance against the Lions in Week 5 where they finished with five sacks, a pair of fumble recoveries, and an interception. If they can put the clamps on for another week, they’ll be able to move to 4-1 early in the year.

BC at SSK
It was a tough night for Mike Reilly against Edmonton. The pivot was sacked five times and tossed a pick against his former team. BC currently sits last in the West, but they can get out of the basement with a victory on Saturday.
Cody Fajardo has done a solid job filling in for Zach Collaros to open the campaign, but he had a rough outing in his last appearance against Calgary in Week 4. The Riders are coming off a bye week and they’ll be motivated to come out with a win in front of their home faithful.
