TORONTO — The 2019 CFL playoffs are still months away but this weekend there are a few teams that can punch their ticket in the Shaw Road to the Grey Cup.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats were the first to secure a playoof berth win a last-second win over the Edmonton Eskimos.
In the West Division, the Stampeders and Blue Bombers also have an opportunity to clinch a spot in the post-season. If Calgary wins, and Ottawa loses, the Stamps and Bombers are locked in. If the Bombers win, along with an Ottawa loss, Winnipeg will see playoff action.
Here are the playoff scenarios for Week 15:
Toronto and Ottawa losses this week would result in three teams with 10 defeats (with BC). Therefore, any club with nine wins would be among the Top-6 and will earn a playoff berth either in their own Division or via a West crossover into the third spot in the East.
However should they lose, Toronto and Ottawa can still finish in second in the East Division.
If the fourth-place team in division A has more points, not tied, than the third-place team in division B, the fourth-place team will cross over to division B, replace the third place team in division A, and compete against the second-place team of that division
