American Football International Game Notes: A look at Week 7

TORONTO — The Roughriders and Lions reach a decisive point in their season, while everyone’s talking about a potential Grey Cup preview as the Ticats and Bombers square off in a battle of division leaders.

It’s Week 7 in the Canadian Football League and it all kicks off with the Calgary Stampeders visiting the Ottawa REDBLACKS at 7 p.m. ET on Thursday. Ottawa opened the season with a 32-28 win in Calgary and will be looking to snap a three-game skid. The Stampeders enter the game 3-2 and are hoping to build off a Week 6 victory over the Argonauts.

The scene shifts to Edmonton at 9:30 p.m. ET with Toronto in town. The 0-5 Argonauts are closing-out a three-game stretch through Manitoba and Alberta. Edmonton looks to bounce back after last week’s 20-10 setback in Montreal. Emily Reid will be taking the stage at halftime as part of the Thursday Night Football Concert Series.

Friday Night Football features a heavyweight tilt of division leaders with the Winnipeg taking on Hamilton at Tim Hortons Field at 7 p.m. ET. The teams combine for a 9-1 record, with the lone loss coming in Week 4 as the Tiger-Cats fell to the Alouettes. The contest marks only the sixth time since 1958 that two teams, which have each played a minimum of five games, are entering a matchup with a single loss between them.

To round out the week, the Saskatchewan Roughriders will travel to BC Place to complete the back end of a home-and-home series on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. Last week, Saskatchewan came out on top with a 38-25 victory. BC is looking for its first home victory and have announced a $100,000-minimum 50/50 guaranteed jackpot at the game.

Friday’s game between Winnipeg/Hamilton will be TSN’s Live Mic game.
