CFL Week Five

Things don't appear to be getting any easier for the Ottawa RedBlacks thanks to week five's match up from the CFL schedule maker.

Having had some serious struggles agains the Edmonton Eskimos over the last two weekends, the RedBlacks will now have to turn their attention to the souther Alberta branch of smash mouth football as the Stampeders make their trip into TD Place Stadium this evening, marking the first of the Friday Night Football doubleheader.

The Stamps who started to get into their offensive groove last week thanks to the galloping Jon Cornish actually still think that the best offensive output is yet to come, not a good thing to hear in the RedBlack locker room, where the already weary Ottawa D corps will have to find some more resolve to shut down the Stamps attack.

Game two this evening takes us out to BC Place, where the Lions will welcome the Road Warrior Tour of 2015 Argonaut squad to the coast, though of late the Argos find the road to be a welcoming place, having put together a 2 and 1 record so far this year without once putting a foot on the Rogers Field turf in regular season play.

The Lions are also sporting 2 and 1 records, living large off their remarkable come from behind victory over the Rides of last weekend, when they snatched what had appeared to be a safe and home victory from the Riders making those who left BC Place early sorry that they bugged out on their team so fast.

Saturday finds the Winnipeg Blue Bombers continuing their exploration of the Alberta territory, having lost a heart breaking one point game to Calgary last week, the Blue will be looking to make the Eskimos current winning streak a thing of the past.

Sunday finds the Tiger Cats in Saskatchewan, where the Riders will be chomping at the bit to get on the winning side for a change this season, as noted last weekend and from some of their games previous this year, the fourth quarter is quickly becoming the Riders graveyard. Hamilton however, most likely won't be content to wait until the final frame of play to start digging some ditches for the Riders to stumble into.
