The Ti-Cats put on a clinic as they keep it close early, score big in the middle, and coast to the win. Things are much crazier out west, as the Riders and Stamps go back-and-forth, giving us lead changes, kick returns TDs, too many turnovers to count (including SIX interceptions), and then finally overtime. While Rene Paredes takes our pick 'em's bonus award, it's his three missed field goals that will haunt him, as Brett Lauther hits the winner in OT and sends the Riders to the final.

It's December and we're still playing Canadian football!


Hamilton Tiger-Cats (8-6) @ Toronto Argonauts (9-5) (Sunday, December 5, 13:30pm ET)

Who saw this coming? We all figured the Argos were due for another season in the post-Ricky-Ray wilderness, while we didn't know if Jeremiah Masoli could stay on the field long enough to give the Ti-Cats a chance. But lo and behold, MBT has emerged as a quality QB for Toronto, while Masoli has been just healthy enough to keep pace. The Argos won the division, while Hamilton finished the season strong, taking four out of their last six games. But those two losses? Both against the Argos. Eastern Final Preview »

Saskatchewan Roughriders (9-5) @ Winnipeg Blue Bomders (11-3) (Sunday, November 17, 4:30pm ET)

Ladies and gentlemen, your Winnipeg Blue Bombers: best offence, best defence, best record in the league. They also swept the Riders 2-0 in the season series, but! These two teams haven't faced each other since Week 6. Has Saskatchewan found enough of its groove to put in a good showing? Western Final Preview »
