B.C. Lions (8-10) @ Hamilton Tigers-Cats (9-9) (Sunday, November 15)
B.C. faces a tough task heading into Hamilton. While the Tiger-Cats are not necessarily world-beaters just yet, they do face a Lions team that's lost its past two games. Casey Printers will play for B.C.—while he has yet to make a serious showing in his latest comeback, he's capable of putting together a complete game at any time. On the other sideline, Kevin Glenn looks to continue his own renaissance and do the impossible in Hamilton: win a playoff game.

Edmonton Eskimos (9-9) @ Calgary Stampeders (10-7-1) (Sunday, November 15)
Another coin toss: both teams had serious bouts of inconsistency over the regular season. Edmonton will be fine if Arkee Whitlock has another big game, and keeps the rush away from Ricky Ray. Calgary can dominate if Henry Burris gets on the same page as his deep receiving corps. Calgary may get a slight home edge, but don't count out the fans decked out in green & gold who make the big trip south.

The Bonus
Pick the kicker who will score the most points for his team. Official 2009 kicking stats.

Please, do NOT tell anyone in the Green & Gold fanbase that I am saying this, but the Double E have just not been consistent enough to warrant a Grey Cup attempt this year. The big game is in Calgary, and those boys will be hungry to have a shot at playin' in it. I do remember when Edmonton spoiled those dreams in the past, but they've scored only 15 points in that stadium this year!?!? I do think this could be a shootout style game for the ages, but in the end, the Stamps will hold court. Calgary by 5.

Good on BC for gettin' the crossover, but even better for the TiCats to be the league's most improved team. It's hard not to like this edition of the Tabbies. Sunday, they'll be the bigger and better cats. Hamilton by 17.

Prefontaine just might be the reason the Esks keep it respectably close.

It's really hard for me to try & somewhat root for the Pussycats, but I don't like a west team trying to be the representative of the East!

Sooo... Hamilton by 4 or maybe a bunch

In the west Calgary has been the better team most of the season, however it's who is better/lucky today.

Calgary should prevail by 4
