Two teams both coming off wins last week meet on Saturday night as the Edmonton Eskimos welcome in the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The visitors come in back at the .500 mark after knocking off Montreal last week on the road. Edmonton got over the break-even mark with a tough, grind it out win over Winnipeg.
After dropping back to back games in which their offense really struggled, Hamilton got back in the win column as underdogs continued to dominate the early slate of the CFL.
Hamilton led just 5-4 at the half, but behind a giant 2nd half that saw them outscore Montreal 26-3, the Tiger-Cats cruised to a victory.
Brett Maher was the real hero in terms of scoring for the Tiger-Cats, going 5 of 5 on field goals. While finishing drives has been a problem here early on for the Tiger-Cats, they have been able to at least rely on Maher.
RB CJ Gable, the USC product, finished with 61 yards and found the end zone one time. It was encouraging to see the Tiger-Cats get some sort of stability in their run game, to open things up for the pass game.
Look for them to use that run game here once again as they look to control the tempo. They held Montreal to just 7 points and that came from them continuing to move the chains and keeping Montreal’s offense off the field.
Dramatics have been the theme for Edmonton here early on in the season.
Edmonton saw their first two games go into overtime where they won one and lost one. Last week, it was a nail biter to the end again, with Edmonton coming out on top 20-16.
The Eskimos have to be encouraged by their defensive play last week. They didn’t get much from them through the first two weeks, but last week they held Winnipeg to 347 yards of total offense and caused havoc in the backfield all game long.
Offensively, the point production wasn’t there last week, but the offensive numbers continued to be good. Edmonton compiled 517 yards of total offense, mostly from the pass game.
Mike Reilly tossed for 465 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the win.
Edmonton has had no problem moving the ball offensively, but it’s been their defense that has been the biggest problem. If the Eskimos defense can carry over what was done last week in Winnipeg, this team will be tough to beat going forward.

Free Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. Edmonton Eskimos CFL Prediction:
Edmonton’s game relies heavily on their defense. If they can play anywhere close to how well they played last week, Hamilton will struggle all night.
On the flip side of things, look for Hamilton to try and control the pace of play. They like to move the chains and keep that clock moving, while not allowing the opposing offense to see the field.
