TORONTO — We’re well on our way down the Shaw Road to the Grey Cup, and with teams jockeying for positions in the standings — and playoff positions — we look forward to each team’s remaining games this year.
As we hit the backstretch of the regular season, CFL.ca takes a data-driven look at who has the shortest path to the post-season and who faces an uphill battle.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats were the first team to clinch a playoff spot this season, and with the East Division crown all but in their grasp, they also have the easiest remaining schedule of any team in the league.
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers continue to have the league’s best slate. They’ll have to beat the Ticats in a head-to-head in Week 16 before finishing the season up with a back-to-back against Calgary.
Here is how the remaining schedules break down with six weeks left in the regular season:
