The #TotalPickEm went four for four during Week 19, and we nearly got two straight spotless weeks, but alas, it didn’t come to fruition.
With another four games in Week 20, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers ruined the chance at a perfect week with their victory in the opening game of the slate, leaving the record for the year at 59-18.
Calgary 28, Winnipeg 29
Zach Collaros made his return and showed out for his new team.
Collaros completed nearly 80 percent of his passes for 221 yards and two touchdowns — one of which was an incredible throw on the run to Darvin Adams in the back corner of the end zone.
Winnipeg’s season is finished. However, they’ll be watching intently during Week 21, as there’s still a chance that they could host the Western Semi-Final.
Hamilton 38, Montreal 26
In a possible preview of the Eastern Final, the Ticats were able to outlast the Als to take their 14th win of 2019.
A showdown between the top two teams in the East lived up to the hype. Vernon Adams Jr. was lifted in the first half in order to give him rest before playoffs, but Dane Evans stayed in the game and helped lead the Tabbies to a victory. Brandon Banks also had a career-best 201 yards and three majors to go along with it.
The Ticats get the Argos at home to end the year while the Als travel to the nation’s capital to play the REDBLACKS.
Ottawa 9, Toronto 39
The Argos swept the season series with another lopsided victory over the REDBLACKS on Saturday.
The Argos got contributions from three different quarterbacks who all finished the game with a touchdown pass. Michael O’Connor made his CFL debut and finished with 61 yards on 5 of 9 passing.
To put an end to their seasons, Ottawa hosts the Als while the Argos travel to Tim Hortons Field for their third and final game with the Ticats.
Saskatchewan 27, Edmonton 24
The Riders drew walked into Commonwealth Stadium and took the first half of their back-to-back against the Eskimos to finish off Week 20.
Trevor Harris returned from injury and threw for over 300 yards, however, the Riders were able to mount a last-minute drive to set up a walk-off field goal by Brett Lauther.
Both teams will finish up their respective regular-season campaigns at Mosaic Stadium on Friday when they go head-to-head on Saturday. With a victory against Edmonton in Week 21, Saskatchewan would capture the West Division for the first time since 2009.
