Week 5: Calgary Stampeders at Edmonton Eskimos
Thursday, July 24 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2
The Calgary Stampeders (3-0) will take-on the Edmonton Eskimos (4-0) to kick-off Week 5 action in the CFL. On the line: provincial supremacy and a perfect record to stay atop the CFL West.
Week 4 saw the Stampeders come away with a slim 10-7 victory against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a tight defensive stand-off.
Bo Levi Mitchell, a Katy, TX native and product from Eastern Washington has had a strong season to this point. In three games he has thrown six touchdowns and has avoided throwing an interception so far this season. An emerging target for Mitchell is Jeff Fuller, a Palo Alto, CA native who played his college football at Texas A&M. On the season Fuller has 12 receptions, 170 yards and two touchdowns.
Edmonton is coming off a 26-3 romp over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The setback capped the Bombers’ season-opening three-game winning streak.
The defence has led the way for the Eskimos to this point of the season. Between Almondo Sewell, a standout from Akron and Odell Willis, a product of West Georgia, both are among the leaders in sacks (Sewell with 5 and Willis with 4) and adding to the fact the Eskimos lead the league in interceptions, the defence is the foundation for the Eskimos’ success.
Thursday’s game will be the first meeting of the season between the two long-time rivals. Calgary took all three meetings between the two teams last season.
Week 5: Toronto Argonauts at Saskatchewan Roughriders
Saturday, July 26 at 10:00 p.m. ET on ESPN2
Two teams will look to get their seasons back on track as the Toronto Argonauts (1-3) visit the Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-2) this week. The 2013 Grey Cup champions will be looking to avenge a 48-15 blowout loss at the hands of these same Argonauts in Week 2.
Toronto fell victim to the Ottawa REDBLACKS’ home field advantage in Week 4. Playing in front of a booming crowd at TD Place, Ottawa edged past the Boatmen 18-17 to register the franchise’s first victory.
With a number of key offensive players out of the Argos lineup, newcomer Steve Slaton who showed a lot of promise last week by giving Ricky Ray another option throwing the ball. The West Virginia product had three receptions for 58 yards in the game.
Following a bye-week, the Roughriders have had plenty of time to contemplate their 26-13 loss to the B.C. Lions in week 3.
After winning the Grey Cup last year, the Roughriders have had a tough start to begin the season. All eyes will be on former North Carolina Tar heel, Darian Durant to steer the Roughriders in the right direction. In order for him to do that, be sure to watch one of his favourite targets, Taj Smith, a Syracuse standout for the big play down field.
Saturday will be the second and final regular season match-up between the two sides.
