The season started many months ago with nine teams hoping to be fighting for the Grey Cup when it all ended. Last weekend saw the four remaining teams take the field to compete for their spot in the season finale, the 106th Grey Cup.
Would it be the Hamilton Tiger-Cats or the Ottawa Redblacks coming out of the East Division?
Hamilton had gone through the season with its explosive offence leading the way. But could that offence be enough against a well-balanced Ottawa Redblacks team?
Ottawa had a good but not great offence, and the same could really be said about their defence. As it turns out, their defence had a superb game against the Ticats as did pivot Trevor Harris (29-32 for 367 yards and six touchdowns). Ottawa won with ease, 46-27.
Out of the West, would it be the Winnipeg Blue Bombers or the Calgary Stampeders?
Defence was definitely the name of the game as neither pivot completed more than 55 percent of their passes (Matt Nichols—46.9 percent; Bo Levi Mitchell—54.8 percent).
Much like their first meeting earlier this season, the Stampeders were able to hold the Blue Bombers out of the end zone. But the Blue Bombers were unable to return the favor. Mitchell threw three touchdown passes to Eli Rogers and won the game, 21-14.
That leaves the two division winners to battle it out for glory in the 106th Grey Cup. Will Calgary win after losing the last two Grey Cups? Or will Ottawa beat them again? Read on, and we’ll tell you how we think the game will go.
