CFL’s West Division Heading Down to the Wire

In the CFL all but one playoff spot is locked in but that could change tonight as the Eskimos take on the BC Lions for the crossover, but the bigger story is the three way tug of war between the Riders, Stamps and Bombers for the first round bye, and even home field for the first round against the other. Right now after Calgary’s 30-28 win over the Riders it sits them first place, though tied in points, but a Winnipeg win at home tonight could make it a three way tie a top the standings at 20 points. Winnipeg will have played an extra game meaning they will not have a game in the final week of the season, but in the next two weeks following today’s game they will have a home and home with Calgary which could decide the division should one team win both. With the NFL back some have tuned out the CFL, but the west division should hold everyone’s attentions as they battle for playoff seeding and try to play that all important game on November 24th in Calgary to win the 107th Grey Cup.
