This Week In Sports (08/10/17)

by Tyler Janzen

Week seven in the CFL started just as most people had expected. The Calgary Stampeders kept the pedal to the floor and left the Toronto Argonauts in the dust. The Stamps jumped out to a 27-10 lead at the half and never looked back, taking the win with a 41-24 final score. Roy Finch returned his second punt in as many games for a touchdown and racked up almost 200 return yards. Bo Levi Mitchell completed 19 passes for 249 yards and three touchdowns. Calgary’s offence has been on an absolute tear lately, scoring over 100 points total in their last two games. The Friday night double-header had two very close games between the Bombers and RedBlacks, and the Ti-Cats and Eskimos. Winnipeg came back from a 10-point deficit, capped off by a 38-yard field goal as time expired for a 33-30 victory over Ottawa. The second game of the double header was way closer than anyone had anticipated. After a 60-1 beat down last week, there wasn’t much hope for the 0-5 Tiger-Cats against the undefeated Edmonton Eskimos. Hamilton put up a fight but it wasn’t enough to take down the power house Eskimos. Edmonton improved to a perfect 6-0 on the season and are atop the West division standings. I had high hopes for the Riders this week after they managed to beat Toronto last week, but I was let down after a 30-15 loss to the BC Lions on Saturday. All of Saskatchewans 15 points came in the fourth quarter as they played strictly for pride after being down 30-0 with three minutes left. My picks are now 16-11-1 this season after going 2-2 last week. My picks for week eight are Edmonton, Montreal, Winnipeg, and Saskatchewan.
