Week eight of the Canadian Football League kicks off on Thursday night at TD Place Stadium.
It’s a match up between the best team in the league, and one of the worst teams in the league when the Edmonton Eskimos and Ottawa Redblacks face off.
In their other match up this season Edmonton won by a final score of 23-21.
The Edmonton Eskimos have had a nice start to their season coming into this game with a 6-0 record. As impressive as it has been, they easily could have a very different record if they weren’t good at closing out games.
They did have one game where they won by a eleven points, but in the other five games they have only won by five points or less.
They have made key plays at the end of games and that has allowed them the success.
The Eskimos are led by Mike Reilly at the quarterback position, and he has been really good. He comes into this game having passed for 1945 yards and 11 touchdowns.
In his last start against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats he threw for 317 yards and two touchdowns. If he continues this type of play, he could win the CFL MVP.
To win this game the Eskimos need to play good defense. Although Ottawa hasn’t had great success in wins and losses they do have a team that can put up a lot of points in a hurry if they get hot.
The Ottawa Redblacks come into this game with a 1-5-1 record, but if they were able to close out games, like the Eskimos have been able too, we might be talking about them as one of the best teams in the CFL.
The worst loss the Redblacks have suffered this year, was by four points. They have made key mistakes going down the stretch of football games and it has really hurt them.
In their last game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers they lost by a final score of 33-30. For the Redblacks to win this game it’s all going to come down to the offensive end of the football.
They need to try get this game to be a shootout.
If they can get this game to be high scoring, they have a chance to win.
