CFL Week Six

Week six launches with a Thursday night match up between two teams that will be looking for a way to avoid late game disappointments.

The Lions with a 2 and 2 recored and the Bombers who sit at 2 and 3 on the year so far, have both found ways to lose games that should have been theirs for the W column.

With late game miscues allowing competitors to not only make the fourth quarters interesting, but to dominate the two western squads in a most disturbing fashion.

The final fifteen minutes of recent weeks, the kind of game that leaves coaches up late into the early morning trying to understand how and why certain victory was taken away.

Friday night brings the struggling Saskatchewan Roughriders into Edmonton, with the path ahead for the Riders not easy, now moving on to Quarterback number three in just six weeks, the latest casualty is Kevin Glenn who was placed on the six game injured list this week, leaving the reins to Brett Smith who will be looking to reverse the Riders horrid fate thus far in 2015.

The Eskimos on the other hand are playing with some renewed confidence after a convincing trouncing of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last week, a successful evening that launched them into top spot of the CFL West.

Saturday night features the rested Alouettes taking on an snarly Calgary Stampeders squad at McMahon Stadium, the Als had the bye week to rest up with and nurse some injuries, while the Stamps suffered their own late game woes as the RedBlacks clawed their way back into the win column with an impressive final fifteen minutes of play at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa.

The loss will have festered on the Stamps over the last week, making for a team that will no doubt take out some of their frustrations on the visiting Als.

The week wraps up on Monday, with the long weekend coming to an end with a welcome home to the travelling Bedouins of the CFL the Argos and the Ti Cats, owing to the Pan Am games and FIFA women's soccer of June and July, both teams have been road travellers for the start of the season.

Monday finds the ages old rivalry of Cats and Argos returning to Hamilton and a Monday evening showdown at Tim Horton's Field. The Cats will be looking to pull themselves into first place tie with the Argos, while Toronto has designs on keeping their road success on track and grabbing undisputed first place status with a weekend victory.
