CFL Gameday: Montreal at Toronto (August 4, 2011)

Two teams struggling for a win over the last few weeks kick off our week six previews.

The Montreal Alouettes in the rare position of being in the midst of a losing skid travel to Toronto to take on the Argonauts in their second home game of the season.

The Argos have left their coach frustrated over the last few weeks with costly mistakes at inopportune times knocking out a potential win from under their feet, however with a strong running game there does seem to be hope on the horizon.

Montreal on the other hand is still considered one of the top echelon teams in the CFL, but with two losses in a row there are some suggesting that perhaps the dynasty is beginning to crumble. the twin themes of an Argo team looking to move forward and an Alouette team hoping to regain form makes for an interesting opener for week six.

Below you can find information about the Als/Argos matchup, offering up previews and reviews, as well as other items of note from and other sources.
