TORONTO — Spoiler alert: the very top of these rankings remain unchanged from last week.
When the Winnipeg Blue Bombers sealed their win over the Calgary Stampeders with Demario Houston’s end zone interception, the reigning champs solidified their spot at the top of these rankings once again. Calgary is in this group’s minds at least, the next best team in the league at the moment and BC, thanks to its second bye week of the season, holds onto that third spot.
It’s between spots four through nine where things get interesting. What do we make of these six teams, as we roll through the first third of the regular season?
The Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan Roughriders gave us possibly the most fiery game of the year to date, battling themselves as much as each other at points before Wynton McManis snatched a win away from Cody Fajardo and the Riders.
The Edmonton Elks aren’t winning a lot but they’re showing that you can’t count them out, no matter the names on the injured list. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats finally got a win and while both the Ottawa REDBLACKS and Montreal Alouettes have losing records, they both seem capable of much more than where they are right now.
The top tier of the league seems hard to rattle at the moment, but there’s a lot of room for movement when you look past them. It made Week 6 wildly entertaining and Week 7 is shaping up to be no different, especially with the Argos and Riders set to meet again on Saturday in Saskatchewan.
