TORONTO — The Saskatchewan Roughriders are the latest team to see an “X” beside their name in the standings.
With their 41-16 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Friday night, the Riders punched their ticket to the post-season.
The Calgary Stampeders, Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Winnipeg Blue Bombers all clinched playoff spots last week.
Later on Friday night, the Montreal Alouettes have a chance to clinch a spot, since the Argos and REDBLACKS lost earlier to start the triple header. That means, if Montreal wins in BC, they’re in.
Week 16 Playoff Scenarios:
East Division Playoff Scenarios
Montreal Win OR tie combined with Toronto AND Ottawa Losses = Montreal secures a playoff berth
West Division Playoff Scenarios
Saskatchewan Win = Saskatchewan secures a playoff berth
Edmonton Win AND a BC Loss = BC eliminated from post-season contention.
