Former Stamp and current NFL player Alex Singleton chimed in following the win, lauding the defence’s performance.

Winnipeg 31, Ottawa 1

It was all Bombers, all the time on Friday Night Football as Mike O’Shea’s crew sprinted to a 30-point win over the visiting REDBLACKS.

The Bombers’ QB room is tight-knit, and rambunctious young backup Chris Streveler chimed in with a series of hashtags after Nichols’ record-setting performance.

Matt Nichols is known for his intensive film study and game prep, but it was the adorable home video of his daughter watching film that earned plaudits in Week 6.


Montreal 20, Edmonton 10

The Als had a famous fan unleash the birds onto the field pre-game, as UFC champion Georges St-Pierre stopped by Percival Molson Stadium.

Saturday was the Global Day of Inclusion, and Special Olympian Sebastian Hamel-Bourdeau was being interviewed on the TSN broadcast at the exact moment the Alouettes — his favourite team — found the end zone.

That’s three wins in a row for the Alouettes, and it’s clear Khari Jones has his team playing sharp football.

Saskatchewan 38, BC 25

The Riders won on the field, pulling away in Q4 to down the last-place Lions, and stayed winning on social as well with some quality content.

The team received a Mexican youth football team, which was in Regina to face a local team in an international exhibition game.
