The CFL version of Monday Night Football takes place inside BMO Field as the Montreal Alouettes take on the Toronto Argonauts.
Both teams look to rebound here in Week 5, as they enter after losses in Week 4.
After seeing their defense dominate in back to back wins, Toronto suffered a major set back in last weeks 30-20 loss to Ottawa.
This comes after the Argonauts allowed just 31 points combined in the 2 wins.
Toronto held Ottawa to just 10 first half points, but struggled in the 2nd half. That comes at the expense of the Toronto offense as well, as they only compiled 300 yards and didn’t give their defense any breathers.
With just 35 yards of rushing, that had a lot to do with their problems. Toronto couldn’t find any sort of stability with the ball, unable to move the chains and keep the Ottawa offense off the field.
Look for that to be a key here. Toronto has to find a way to get Brandon Whitaker going. While he doesn’t have to throw up significant rush yards, getting big chunks of yardage on occasion can open this pass game up.
After winning in their opening game of the season, Montreal has stumbled offensively in back to back losses.
Montreal hasn’t been lighting up the scoreboard by any means this season, as they managed just 22 points in their season opening win. Over the last 2 weeks, the Alouettes have managed just 20 points combined.
Last week, they managed just 302 yards of total offense with their pass game not doing much. Rakeem Cato finished with just 203 yards on 18 of 25 passing.
Defensively, the Alouettes haven’t been bad, but like their counterparts here, their offense hasn’t done them any sort of favors.
Montreal’s offense rarely stays on the field, which puts their defense on the field with little breaks.
For what it’s worth though, this defense sits 4th in the league, allowing 24.3 points per game.
