Playoff Scenarios: BC secures playoff berth on Friday

The Canadian Press

TORONTO — The BC Lions became the latest team in the CFL to clinch a spot in the playoffs this weekend.

A 37-29 win over the Edmonton Elks at Commonwealth Stadium on Friday punched their ticket to the post-season.

Additionally in the West Division, Winnipeg clinched a home playoff date with BC’s victory coupled with the loss by the Saskatchewan Roughriders against the Ottawa REDBLACKS earlier on Friday.

Here were the 110th Grey Cup playoff scenarios for Week 16:


  • BC WIN or Calgary LOSS = BC clinches playoff spot
  • BC WIN and Saskatchewan LOSS = Winnipeg secures home playoff date


  • No team can clinch a playoff spot this week


  • Toronto clinched the East Division title for the third straight season in Week 15
  • Winnipeg secured a playoff spot for a seventh consecutive year in Week 14
