Playoff Scenarios: Bombers set sights on home playoff date

BlueBombers.com

TORONTO — The Winnipeg Blue Bombers punched their ticket to the post-season in Week 13 and now they set their sights on hosting a playoff game.

If the Bombers win against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this week and the Calgary Stampeders lose to the BC Lions, Winnipeg will host a playoff game at IG Field.

Here are the Week 15 playoff scenarios for the 109th Grey Cup on November 20 from Mosaic Stadium in Saskatchewan:

WEST DIVISION

  • Winnipeg WIN and Calgary LOSS = Winnipeg clinches a home playoff game

EAST DIVISION

  • No team can clinch a playoff spot this week

PLAYOFF PICTURE

  • Winnipeg secured a post-season berth for the sixth consecutive season in Week 13

CROSSOVER RULE

If the fourth-place team in division A – A4 – has more points than the third-place team in division B – B3 (they cannot be tied), A4 will cross over and take the place of B3 in terms of playoff seeding. A4 will then compete against B2 in the division B semi-final.
