It’s a West division showdown on Friday night at Commonwealth Stadium between the top team in the division and the team in last place.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders make the trip to take on the Edmonton Eskimos. This is the first meeting of the year between the two teams.
The Eskimos have won five of the last six games played between the two teams.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have had a really disappointing season so far this year, but come into this game with a ton of confidence.
In their last game they played a near perfect game and beat the BC Lions and won by a final score of 41-8. Ed Gainey set a franchise record for most interceptions in a game when he picked off Jonathon Jennings from the Lions four times in a game.
To win this game they are going to need to play a near perfect game, and this time they will be playing against much tougher competition.
On the other side of this match up is the Edmonton Eskimos who had a major setback in their last game. After starting the season 7-0 they didn’t play very well against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and ended up losing 33-26.
They really need a bounce back in this game, because they can’t let one loss turn into two losses, because pretty soon they will be on a big losing streak.
The good thing for the Eskimos is they have Mike Reilly at the quarterback position and he extended his touchdown streak to 18 games in a row in his last start.
I would expect him to come out motivated and really try to lead the Eskimos back on the right track.
