    GAME RECAP

    DOMINANT DOMINIQUES: DAVIS, RHYMES CLOSE OUT RIDERS
    CFL.CA STAFF


    OTTAWA – In what many thought would be a defensive battle, turned into a shootout as the Ottawa REDBLACKS outlasted the Saskatchewan Roughriders Thursday with a 44-41 win at TD Place in their home opener.

    The duo of Dominique Davis and Dominique Rhymes combined for 11 completions for 168 yards and a touchdown in the win. Davis, who took some heat last week despite the win was stellar, completing 30 of 39 passes for 354 yards and three touchdown passes in the vicotry.

    The matchup was made of two teams with two very different storylines surrounding the quarterback spot after Week 1.

    Davis had an adventurous Week 1 but despite throwing four interceptions, was able to orchestrate a game-winning touchdown drive in the final minutes to upset the defending Grey Cup Champion Calgary Stampeders.

    A stark contrast to the Riders who lost starter Zach Collaros after he was hit late by Hamilton’s Simoni Lawrence in a loss to the Tiger-Cats. Both Cody Fajardo and Isaac Harker saw time in relief, with the former getting the nod versus the REDBLACKS.

    Head coach Craig Dickenson mentioned during the week that Harker could see some action despite Fajardo getting the start. The best way to keep Harker pinned to the bench was to put points on the board early and that is exactly what the fourth-year pivot did.

    On his second possession as a starter, Fajardo gave the Riders a 7-0 lead after delivering a strike to RB Marcus Thigpen on a post for a 19-yard touchdown. The score was aided by a 41-yard pass interreference call.

    The lead – although critical for Fajardo’s confidence – was short lived however as the REDBLACKS promptly answered. Davis completed a first down strike to SB rad Sinopoli and got a 15-yard run from RB Mosis Madu before laying in a perfect toss to Rhymes in the corner of the endzone for a 20-yard major. A successful two-point conversion followed by a single on the ensuing kickoff gave the REDBLACKS a 9-7 lead as the first quarter came to a close.

    The Riders would answer with massive 57-yard field goal off the foot of Brett Lauther to keep the lead swing going. In doing so, his kick tied for fifth longest in Roughriders history.

    As the second quarter got underway, the REDBLACKS offence came alive led by Davis who was absolutely locked in each possession of the quarter.

    First, Davis went play-action and found JC Beaulieu in the endzone for a 23-yard major after Ottawa forced a turnover on special teams deep in Riders territory.

    The next possession, the REDBLACKS got a 42-yard punt return from Ryan Lankford which allowed Davis to spot Seth Coate down the sidelines for a 43-yard gain before finishing the drive with an 8-yard TD to RJ Harris.

    Before the Roughriders could catch their breath, they were down 25-10 and in need of an answer for the Davis and the Ottawa offence which was stretching the field and doing so at a rapid pace.

    A 55-yard kick return from Marcus Thigpen helped flip the field and the Riders stopped the bleeding when William Powell dodged his way into the endzone for a 9-yard score. Fajardo helped his cause by spotting Kyran Moore down the seam for a 39-yard gain to set up the score.

    Somewhat lost in the leadup to the game amidst the Riders QB situation was Powell’s return to Ottawa for the first time since signing as a free agent in Saskatchewan. The former CFL rushing leader finished the night with 11 carries for 45 yards and a major against his former mates.

    With the half winding down and the REDBLACKS having added another field goal, Fajardo showed some moxie headed into the locker room, completing another 20+ yard pass to Moore before throwing a ball over the top of the Ottawa secondary and connecting with Shaq Evans for a 44-yard major with four seconds remaining in the second quarter.

    The teams combined for 55 points in the first half and the third quarter began with the REDBLACKS up 31-24.

    They would quickly add to that lead as DL Avery Williams punched the football from Powell on the Riders first possession to set up a 30-yard Ward field goal.

    The Riders would respond with a field goal of their own before Ward added another one – good for his 55th consecutive make dating back to last season.

    Despite facing a REDBLACKS offence that was rolling, the Riders continued to hang around however. Down 41-27, with just over five minutes remaining, the Riders gambled on third-and-three and converted a 27-yard pass from Fajardo to Moore who set up a 6-yard Thigpen major.

    Moore’s reception put him up over 100 yards receiving on the day and aided the Riders in cutting the Ottawa lead to 8.

    As the game hit the three-minute warning, Davis and Rhymes once again took it upon themselves to put the game away, connecting on a 38-yard reception. It not only set up a field goal to extend the lead to 11 but put the lid on what was an offensive showcase in Week 2.

    The Riders return to Regina to host the Toronto Argonauts on Canada Day in their home opener next week. The REDBLACKS will head into their first bye week before returning to host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Week 4.

He’s been here 19 years, he’s restless. He wants to go be a general manager. And the Houston job, while I do think it’s a lateral move, is obviously a good setup for him.”

    Wednesday’s quiz

    ****************************

    Friday’s List of 13: Wrapping up a busy Thursday……..

    13) I’m not fond of how the NBA runs it draft; when a pick gets traded (the #4 pick got traded twice), they still have the team who originally had the pick posted as the team making that pick. It is nonsensical.

    Lakers had the #4 pick; they traded it to New Orleans, who traded it to Atlanta; everyone in the damn country knows this, so post it on your graphics and announce it as Atlanta’s pick— how freaking difficult can that be?

    12) One of the most interesting teams in the NBA next season will be Cleveland, since 66-year old John Beilein will be a rookie NBA coach, after having been a great college coach.

    Cavaliers took PG Darius Garland with the #5 pick; he only played four college games at Vandy before getting hurt, which wound up costing his college coach his job, since the team went in the ashcan without their point guard.

    Cleveland already has Collin Sexton, so maybe they foresee a backcourt like Portland’s, with McCollum, Lillard.

    11) Miami Heat traded three 2nd-round picks to Indiana for the 32nd pick, then took 6-10 KZ Okpala from Stanford; this from a scout: “Didn’t always have the defensive impact you might expect, particularly off the ball. Lacks a degree of physicality and toughness at times.”

    Three 2nd round picks is a high price, so Miami must see a lot of potential.

    10) New Orleans Pelicans traded the #4 pick, the #57 pick and Solomon Hill to Atlanta for the #8 and #17 picks, giving the Pelicans three first round picks.

    With the #4 pick, the Hawks took De’Andre Hunter, who helped lead Virginia to the national title this past spring.

    New Orleans took big guy Jaxson Hayes (Texas) and Nickeil Alexander-Walker (Virginia Tech) with the picks they got in the deal.

    9) Oklahoma City took Chuma Okeke with the 16th pick; this is the kid from Auburn who tore his ACL during the NCAA tournament, so he won’t be any help this coming season, but Thunder must figure the knee will be fine. This pick was largely panned by the TV experts.

    8) Gonzaga’s Rui Hachimura, Brandon Clarke both got taken in the first 21 picks, first time ever the Zags have had two first round draft picks in the same year.

    7) You feel bad for kids who show up in Brooklyn for the draft and then slide down the draft board; has to be humbling. Oregon’s 7-3 C Bol Bol sat there for four hours before he wound up with the Denver Nuggets, the 44th player taken.

    Bol is 7-foot-3 with a standing reach of 9’7.5, shot 52% from the arc, is an elite rim protector, averaged 21.0 ppg, 9.6 rpg, 2.7 bpg in nine games. Doesn’t turn 20 until November, but teams have questions whether he really loves basketball, which would be a serious problem.

    6) Former Today Show host Matt Lauer put his Hamptons mansion on Long Island up for sale for about $44M, now that his divorce is final.

    People say athletes are overpaid, and most are, but a guy hosting a 7am news show owning an estate worth $44M? Damn. Just for the record, Lauer bought the estate from Richard Gere for $36.5M in 2016.

    5) Mets fired their pitching coach/bullpen coach Thursday; not sure what the bullpen coach did to get fired, unless he doesn’t answer the bullpen phone fast enough.

    The new bullpen coach is Ricky Bones, who was bullpen coach last year but got the boot after the season.

    4) Your tax dollars at work in the Tar Heel State:

    Pinecrest HS in North Carolina lost the ACT test answer sheets for their entire junior class — that’s everyone who took the ACT on February 20 and March 13. All 440 answer sheets.

    School administrators “have no idea” where the answer sheets are; kids will get re-tested when they go back to school this fall. Not good!!!!

    3) Baseball stuff:
    — Rockies put SS Trevor Story (thumb) on the IL.
    — Rockies’ 3B Nolan Arenado (foot) left Thursday’s game early.

    2) An executive with the New England Patriots decided to leave the team after owner Robert Kraft was charged with two counts of soliciting this past winter; the guy moved on to a similar job with Houston, then created a mess when he tried to recruit Nick Caserio to join him with the Texans. That is tampering, so Caserio remains in Foxboro.

    How much will all this affect Caserio’s work this season? His contract is up after the 2020 draft; will he move on to Houston then?

    1) Tampa Bay Rays got permission from MLB to explore splitting their home games between St Petersburg and Montreal; the mayor of St Pete wasn’t pleased.

    “I believe this is getting a bit silly. After 12 years of indecision… I am tired of the games that are being played related to getting a new stadium built.”

    PREVIEW

    REILLY RETURNS TO EDMONTON AS ESKS HOST LIONS
    CFL.CA STAFF


    EDMONTON — It’s a homecoming of sorts for BC Lions quarterback Mike Reilly.

    Reilly will play against his former teammates for the first time as his Lions take on Edmonton Friday night at The Brick Field at Commonwealth Stadium.

    The Lions dropped their season opener against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers last Saturday, losing 33-23, while the Esks defeated the Montreal Alouettes 32-25 at The Brick Field.

    Reilly expects a mixed reception when he takes to the field Friday night.

    “Most of them will cheer and be appreciative of the time that I spent there right until the game starts. Then after that they’ll probably boo me every second,” Reilly laughed, talking to the media on Monday. “Which I would expect nothing else of an opposing team’s fan base, especially a great fan base like Edmonton.”

    Reilly first came to Edmonton in 2013 after spending three seasons as a backup in BC. The Washington native went on to win a Grey Cup and a Grey Cup Most Valuable Player honour in 2015, a Canadian Football League All-Star selection in 2017, and that year’s Most Outstanding Player honours. The 34-year old then left for the Lions in the off-season, signing a four-year contract.

    Former teammate and Edmonton defensive tackle Almondo Sewell was all business when he fielded questions about the departed signal-caller.

    “Business is business,” Sewell said. “He had to do what he had to do. We’ve got Trevor (Harris) right now. We’ll just concentrate on what we have here.”

    “It’s getting a bit too much, but that’s alright.” Sewell added, when asked whether he was tired of answering questions about Reilly.

    Harris joined Edmonton during the off-season after spending the last three seasons as the REDBLACKS starter, winning a Grey Cup in 2016. In his first regular season against Montreal last week, the Ohio native threw three touchdowns for 447 yards. Edmonton had over 600 yards of offence against Montreal, but Harris gave all credit to his offensive line and running back CJ Gable.

    “The truth of the story is, it’s our offensive line,” Harris said. “Those guys up front dominated the offensive line, the line of scrimmage. CJ was able to get some free open spaces and when he does that, he’s going to make the first guy miss.”

    Despite the strong start, Edmonton will have to soldier through with a number of injuries. In addition to offensive lineman SirVincent Rogers being out indefinitely with torn triceps, receiver Anthony Parker and defensive back Don Unamba now find themselves on the six-game injured list.

    “It’s never a good thing when you’re putting your starters on the bench, or on the injured six-game list.” Edmonton head coach Jason Maas said. “But like we’ve said in the past it’s the ‘next man up’ mentality. We talked about it early in training camp. Everybody who made our team better be ready to play, because at a moments notice you’re going to be called upon.”

    The Esks will have previously injured receiver DaVaris Daniels in the lineup. He was on the one-game injured list and missed the Alouettes contest. The 26-year-old spent the last three seasons with the rival Calgary Stampeders before joining Edmonton in the off-season.

    As for BC, they don’t have as many walking wounded, but Canadian running back Wayne Moore won’t be available for the team and he’s been placed on the six-game injured list after reportedly hurting his left shoulder against Winnipeg last week.

    Head coach DeVone Claybrooks will get another crack at earning his first-ever win as head coach against a tough West Division opponent.

    “I would say any team in the west is a rival in the sense. It’s going to be such a dog fight,” Claybrooks said. “Every week, you want to get the team’s best effort. So you just make sure that you come out, be ready to play, and be mentally in every game.”

    BY THE NUMBERS

    607 — The number of net offence yards registered by Edmonton in their opening week victory over the Montreal Alouettes

    154 — The amount of rushing yards piled up by Esks running back CJ Gable versus the Alouettes last week, leading all running backs.

    4 — Trevor Harris now has four 400-yard passing games after passing for 447 yards against Montreal

    153 — Lions receiver Bryan Burnham picked up that many receiving yards for BC last week against Winnipeg, giving him 12 career 100+ yard games.

    243 — The amount of combined yards amassed by Brandon Rutley of the BC Lions last week versus Winnipeg. 226 of those yards came off kickoff returns.


    You can watch Friday night’s game on TSN, RDS, and ESPN2 at 9:00 p.m. ET.

    Week 2



    BC LIONS AT EDMONTON ESKIMOS

    Line: Edmonton -4, O/U 55.5
    Time: Friday, June 21, 9:00 p.m. ET


    The marquee matchup of Week 2 features a head-to-head battle between star QBs Mike Reilly and Trevor Harris, with Reilly making his return to Edmonton after six years as the Eskimos starter. Harris fit in seamlessly in his first game with Edmonton racking up 447 passing yards and three TDs in the opener. Reilly threw for 324 yards in his BC debut but completed less than 57 percent of his passes and was picked off twice. That said, Edmonton played against woeful Montreal while the Lions played against a Blue Bombers squad that might be the best in the league.

    Despite the stellar signal-callers, both of these teams showed flaws on offense in Week 1. Edmonton outgained Montreal 608-325 in terms of combined passing and rushing yards but won by just seven points because of sloppy turnovers. BC had a one-dimensional offense against the Bombers, running the ball just four times (that's not a typo they had FOUR freaking carries all game). However, expect the Lions to play with more balance on Friday against a Esks run defense that was gashed for 134 yards on 17 carries against the Alouettes.

    The difference-maker could be the Lions' superior return unit led by Brandon Rutley. They piled up 457 kickoff return yards versus the Bombers, including a 108 yard touchdown. I faded the Lions in Week 1 and felt they were a bit overrated going into the season but they are flying a bit under the radar for this game. Back BC and the points.

    PICK: BC +4

    GAME RECAP
    HARRIS, ELLINGSON LEAD ESKS TO BIG WIN OVER LIONS
    CFL.CA STAFF


    EDMONTON — The Eskimos scored 17-straight points and spoiled Mike Reilly’s return to Edmonton by beating the BC Lions 39-23 on Friday night. Quarterback Trevor Harris continued his hot start to the season by completing 25 of 33 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns while leading the Green and Gold to a 2-0 record. Harris also rushed for another touchdown and at one point completed 14 straight passes.

    Receiver Greg Ellingson shined bright for Edmonton with his first big performance as an Eskimo, racking up 174 receiving yards and two crucial touchdowns on nine catches.

    Reilly started off strong by leading BC to a touchdown on the opening offensive drive, but the veteran passer faced relentless pressure for most of the game and ended the night with just 149 passing yards to go along with a touchdown, a two-point convert and an interception. The Esks’ defensive front seemed to get stronger as the game went on, forcing multiple two-and-outs while getting to Reilly for an incredible seven sacks.

    C.J. Gable had another strong game on the ground and provided balance for Edmonton’s offence by carrying the ball 23 times for 111 tough yards.

    Kickers Sergio Castillo and Sean Whyte were both perfect on the night for their respective teams, with Castillo making five field goals and Whyte making three.

    » Watch: Reilly scores on first drive back in Edmonton




    Reilly was under fire early on as Edmonton’s defensive front applied pressure from all angles, but the veteran passer found a way to complete a 33-yard strike to receiver Bryan Burnham that put the Lions in the red zone on the opening drive of the game. Reilly capped off the 12-play, 83-yard drive with an accurate seven-yard touchdown pass to receiver Lemar Durant to grab the early lead for BC.

    The Lions opted to go for two points after the score, and Reilly successfully completed the convert by scrambling to his right and finding receiver Shaq Johnson in the back corner of the end zone.

    Harris and the Esks’ offence struggled to find an answer for the Lions’ defence in the opening quarter, and another quick defensive stop opened up the door for BC to add to its early lead. Reilly and company did not waste the opportunity, as a big 27-yard gallop from John White followed by a 38-yard catch from Johnson set up the first field goal attempt for the Leos.

    Castillo knocked the 30-yard field goal through the uprights to give the Lions an early 11-0 lead.

    The Esks managed to get on the board in the final minute of the opening quarter with a 45-yard field goal from Whyte. The kick was set up by a big 27-yard catch-and-run from Ellingson.

    Defensive penalties hindered the Esks to start the second quarter, as a roughing the passer penalty helped put the Lions in position to add to their lead once again. But Edmonton’s defence held strong and forced the Lions to settle for a a 25-yard field goal from Castillo.

    BC’s defence notched a turnover on the ensuing drive when defensive tackle Claudell Louis knocked the ball out of the arms of Gable to force the fumble. Davon Coleman quickly recovered the ball for BC, and the Leos converted the turnover into points on Castillo’s third field goal of the opening half, a 36-yard kick that made the score 17-3.

    But the Green and Gold continued to keep things close by adding another field goal of their own soon after. Whyte came through again for the Esks with a 46-yard field goal to make it a 17-6 game after Harris helped put his team in position with key completions to receivers Tevaun Smith and Kenny Stafford.

    Momentum began to fully shift as Harris started getting things going on offence in the final minutes of the first half, and Edmonton scored its first touchdown of the night when Harris found Smith for his first career CFL touchdown catch. The six-yard score was set up by two big catches from Ellingson, and Whyte kicked the extra point to bring the Esks within a touchdown.

    Edmonton found itself in a position to grab its first lead of the game after defensive back Tyquwan Glass picked off Reilly to quickly give the ball back to the offence with under a minute left to go in the half.

    Harris wasted zero time finding Ellingson for three more key connections, including a three-yard touchdown pass that put the Esks ahead. Whyte added the convert to make it 17-straight points for Edmonton, giving the team a 20-17 lead heading into half time.

    BC battled back to tie the game up to start the second half, as Castillo showed off his impressive leg strength by making a 50-yard kick and fourth field goal of the game.

    But Edmonton continued to keep things moving on offence and quickly climbed back on top after Harris led a scoring drive that was capped off by a one-yard quarterback sneak touchdown. Gable put together two solid runs to go along with big plays from Smith and Ricky Collins to put Harris in position to score the go-ahead rushing touchdown and make it a 27-20 game.

    Castillo added a 45-yard field goal in the final minutes of the third quarter to keep BC within a touchdown score, but the Esks answered back and extended their lead on the final play of the third quarter with a 54-yard touchdown bomb from Harris to Ellingson. Whyte added the extra point to give Edmonton a 34-23 lead heading into the final frame.

    The Lions were forced to concede a safety after relentless pressure from BC left zero room for Reilly and the offence to operate, and Whyte would add another field goal for Edmonton near the end of the game to give the Green and Gold a 16-point advantage that sealed the victory.

    Week 3 will see the unbeaten Edmonton Eskimos travel on the road to face the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday, June 27, while the BC Lions will look to secure their first victory of the season when they face the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday, June 29.

    Saturday’s Den: Looking at some Pac-12 football trends…….

    Arizona— Wildcats are 22-28 SU last four years; since ’13, they’re 5-16 ATS as road underdogs. Average total in their last five bowls (3-2) is 76.2. Senior QB Tate has 20 career starts; they don’t play Washington State this year- they lost 69-28 to the Coogs LY.

    Arizona State—
    Sun Devils lost four of last five bowls, giving up 38.8 ppg; they’re 10-4-1 in last 15 games as an underdog. Last two years, ASU is 7-2-1 vs spread coming off a loss; they’ll have a new QB this year, playing behind an experienced OL.

    California— Golden Bears made only 2nd bowl since 2011 LY; they’ve got only 4 starters back on offense this year. Cal lost to arch-rival Stanford last five years, by average score of 32-19 (1-4 vs spread). Under Wilcox, Cal is 11-5 ATS as an underdog, 2-5-1 as a favorite.

    Colorado— Last year’s 5-0 start turned into an injury-riddled 5-7 debacle that cost MacIntyre his job. Buffs have been to one bowl since 2007; their last bowl win was 33-28 over UTEP in the 2004 Houston Bowl. Mel Tucker is a long-time DC; this is his first head coaching job.

    Oregon— This is first time since 2016 that Ducks have same HC two years in row; they lost three of last four bowls, winning LY’s bowl 7-6 over Michigan State. Last three years, under three HCs, Oregon is 1-7-1 ATS as a road underdog.

    Oregon State— Last four years, Beavers are 9-39 SU, 6-11 ATS as a home underdog, 9-13-1 as a road dog- their last bowl was in 2013, when Mike Riley was HC. In their last 25 games, OSU is -24 in turnovers; they’re very experienced this year, should show improvement.

    PREVIEW
    TABBIES, BOATMEN RENEW TENSIONS AT BMO FIELD
    CFL.CA STAFF


    TORONTO – One of the CFL’s most storied rivalries heads to the shores of Lake Ontario, as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats pay the Toronto Argonauts a visit at BMO Field Saturday afternoon.

    While the Ticats look to start their season 2-0, the Argos play their 2019 season opener, with plenty of intrigue on both sides of the ball.

    Two newly-minted head coaches are set to square off – Orlando Steinauer won his CFL head coaching debut in Week 1, while Corey Chamblin is at the helm of a CFL franchise for the first time since 2015.

    There is no shortage of similarities between Steinauer and Chamblin – both head coaches are regarded as defensive gurus, both had stints as the Argos defensive coordinator, and both helped Toronto to Grey Cup victories while the DC.

    “We let the men know it’s going to be a hostile environment,” Steinauer told Ticats.ca. “I love the road trips, it’s a chance to bond and overcome some adversity, be in an unfamiliar situation and territory.”

    Hamilton Tiger-Cats quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has had success in the past against the Argos. Fresh off being named his team’s nominee for Most Outstanding Player and cementing himself as a dependable option under centre, Masoli owns a 5-1 career record against Toronto.

    The Tabbies offence was largely limited by a stingy Saskatchewan Roughrider defence last week. Hamilton notched a mere 232 yards of total offence in Week 1, with Masoli passing for 169 of them. That was his lowest total in a single game since he became the Hamilton starter midway through 2017.

    The Tiger-Cats were able to pull out the victory against the Riders by a 23-17 score. They were aided by Saskatchewan starter Zach Collaros being knocked out of the game after the first play from scrimmage.

    The man who delivered the hit that ended Collaros’s night, linebacker Simoni Lawrence, is in the lineup against Toronto. The eight-year veteran was handed a two-game suspension for his hit on Collaros, but has appealed the suspension and will suit up for Week 2.

    Saturday afternoon will be the first opportunity for Argos fans to get a look at off-season acquisition Derel Walker. The 27-year-old receiver arrives in Toronto after spending four years with the Edmonton Eskimos. Walker struggled with injuries last season, but the Argonauts are hoping to see him return to the form that saw him earn back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2015 and 2016.

    “I’m ready to get it rolling,” Walker told Argonauts.ca. “It’s going to be an exciting year. We’ve been putting in a lot of preparation, so we get to go against another opponent. I’m looking forward to this year and playing with this new team – we’ve got a lot of great guys on the team.”

    Walker’s day won’t be an easy one, as he is expected to be matched up with Delvin Breaux, widely regarded as one of the best shutdown corners in the CFL. The Argos have a number of weapons at wide-out though, was Walker joins a receiving core that already includes S.J. Green and Armanti Edwards.

    Charged with getting Walker the ball is James Franklin, who is looking for a statement season in 2019. Franklin was named the starter after Ricky Ray went down for the season in Week 2 a year ago, but failed to hang on to the gig, with McLeod Bethel-Thompson taking over.

    While Franklin did regain the starting role in the back half of 2018, Bethel-Thompson is still lurking as QB2.

    With both teams having well-established aerial attacks (on paper), the game may well be decided on the ground. James Wilder Jr. of Toronto will match up with Canadian Sean Thomas Erlington of the Tiger-Cats.

    Thomas Erlington was limited to 68 yards rushing in Week 1, but the entire Ticats offence was quiet as well. This is the Université de Montréal alum’s first year as a starter, and he’ll be looking to prove he belongs among the league’s best rushers, while playing against one of the league’s best rushers.

    Wilder Jr. is coming off a disappointing 2018 by his lofty standards. The 27-year-old rushed for over 100 yards only once. That was in Week 4 against Edmonton, which was also the only game in which he was handed the ball more than 20 times. With Chamblin at the helm, Wilder Jr.’s workload could increase.

    The Tabbies offence will face the Argos on Saturday without dependable receiver Luke Tasker, who is on the one-game injured list. Canadian offensive lineman Mike Filer will get the start at centre for Hamilton, after last week’s starter Demetrius Rhaney missed a week of practice for personal business.

    Saturday afternoon will be the CFL debut of Argos lineman Shane Richards. The first-overall pick in the 2019 CFL Draft is slated to start at right guard for the Boatmen. He is one of two 2019 draft picks making their debut, the other being Hamilton full-back Nikola Kalinic.

    BY THE NUMBERS

    232 – Total yards for the Tabbies in their win over the Riders; the fewest of any CFL team in Week 1.

    0 – Wins in three tries for the Argos against Hamilton last year, including two defeats at BMO Field.

    13 – Games with over 300 passing yards for Jeremiah Masoli in 2018, three of which came against the Argos.

    875 – Derel Walker’s receiving yards at the time of his injury last season – third at the time in the CFL.


    The Argos will honour CFL legend Ricky Ray prior to kickoff. Ray announced his retirement this off-season and remains the CFL’s fourth all-time leading passer.

    Kickoff is at 4:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on TSN, RDS and ESPN+, and followed live via CFL.ca Game Tracker.

    CFL Betting Notes - Week 2
    David Schwab



    Saturday, June 22

    Hamilton Tiger-Cats (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS) at Toronto Argonauts (0-0 SU, 0-0 ATS)
    Point-spread: Hamilton -2 ½
    Total: 52


    Game Overview

    Expectations for the Tiger-Cats were running high heading in to Week 1 as favorites to win the East this season. Jeremiah Masoli threw for the second-most yards last year in the CFL and he started this season with 169 yards passing and one score while completing 17 of his 28 attempts in Thursday’s win.

    Brandon Banks had a big game catching the ball with six receptions for 77 yards and a score. Hamilton gained just 63 yards on the ground while allowing 172 rushing yards on defense.

    Saturday will be Corey Chamblin’s debut as Toronto’s new head coach. He was the defensive coordinator for the Argonauts in their run to the 2017 Grey Cup title. Following the team’s fall from grace to just four victories last season, there is definitely some work to be done to get back on track.

    James Franklin will get the start at quarterback, but he could be on a short leash if things get out of hand early. One of his top targets should be wide receiver Derel Walker, who came to Toronto from Edmonton this past offseason.

    Betting Trends

    -- The Tiger-Cats have covered ATS in eight of their last 10 road games against the Argonauts and the total has gone OVER in five of the last six meetings in Toronto. Hamilton also has a 4-1 edge both SU and ATS in the last five meetings overall.

    CFL Week 2 preview, odds, picks and predictions: Argonauts add more weapons
    Rohit Ponnaiya


    HAMILTON TIGER-CATS AT TORONTO ARGONAUTS

    Line: Hamilton -2.5, O/U 52
    Time: Saturday, June 22, 4:00 p.m. ET


    The Argonauts will play their first game of the season on Saturday. After winning the Grey Cup in 2017 they tied for the fewest wins in the league last year, going 4-14. All four of those wins came at home, but they took the L in both of their home tilts with the Ti-Cats, losing 36-25 in September and 34-20 in October.

    Hamilton QB Jeremiah Masoli had a rough start to the season, completing 17 of 28 passes for 169 yards. But we predicted as much since he was going up against a tough Saskatchewan defense that shut him down in two games last season as well. This is still the same QB that threw for 5209 yards for the No. 1 rated offense in 2018 and Hamilton's offense has stayed more or less intact - which is a rare sight in a league with as much offseason turnover as the CFL.

    The Argos allowed a league-worst 560 points last year and despite adding DB Kevin Fogg will likely not be much better. Masoli struggled against some of the better defenses in the league last year but absolutely tore up the Argos, averaging 343.3 yards through the air and tossing 12 TDs in three games.

    On offense, Toronto should be improved from the unit that scored the second-fewest points in the league last year at 20.5 per game. They added WR Derel Walker (875 receving yards in just 11 games in 2018), RB Tyrell Sutton and former Florida Gator speedster Chris Rainey ( 452 rushing and receiving yards with an additional 2,112 yards on returns), along with first overall draft pick OL Shane Richards from Oklahoma State.

    Argo running back James Wilder Jr, one of the top HS recruits in the U.S. class of 2011, is expected to play after leaving Toronto to deal with a family issue. Wilder has been on the verge of a breakout campaign for a couple seasons and missed five games with various ailments in 2018. Quarterback James Franklin also played with more consistency towards the end of last season. Take the Over.

    PICK: Over 52

    GAME RECAP
    TICATS SHINE BRIGHT IN DOMINANT ROAD WIN OVER ARGOS
    CFL.CA STAFF


    TORONTO — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats continued their solid start to the season with a dominant 64-14 road win over the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday. The Ticats’ offence put up 600 total yards and scored six touchdowns on the back of a solid performance from quarterback Jeremiah Masoli. Six consecutive drives resulted in touchdowns for the Tabbies in their largest win ever against Toronto.

    Masoli completed 23 of 31 passes for 338 yards and three touchdowns in the win, giving him a 6-1 career record against the Argos. Masoli also added a one-yard rushing score.

    Running back Sean Thomas-Erlington emerged with a standout performance for Hamilton, showing he could do it all by gaining 109 rushing yards on just 12 carries and adding three catches for 56 yards.

    Receivers Brandon Banks and Bralon Addison both came through with big games for the Ticats as well. Addison found the end zone three times while racking up 107 yards on six catches, and Banks finished the game with seven catches for 105 yards. Banks also added a highlight reel special teams touchdown when he returned a missed field goal for a 113-yard touchdown.

    James Franklin and the Argos’ offence could not find room to maneuver against a strong defensive outing from Hamilton, as the starting quarterback finished the day with 211 passing yards on 16 completions.

    The Ticats came out aggressive on offence with deep throws to stretch the field, but Argos defensive back Abdul Kanneh notched a turnover for his team early on by making a beautiful read and play on the ball to intercept Masoli. The Ticats managed to get it back moments later when offensive lineman Brandon Revenberg forced a fumble on Kanneh and recovered the ball for a fresh set of downs.

    Masoli helped turn the second chance into points with a big 29-yard throw to Banks on a corner route that set up a 34-yard field goal from kicker Lirim Hajrullahu.

    Franklin had some good moments in the early going, standing tall in the pocket while finding open receivers to move the chains. First down gains from receiver Armanti Edwards put Toronto in position to get on the board, and kicker Drew Brown made the 28-yard field goal to tie the game with under five minutes to play in the opening quarter.

    Toronto’s defence did a good job containing Hamilton’s offensive attack to start out, but the Tabbies got on the board again when Hajrullahu showed off his formidable leg strength by knocking through a 56-yard field goal to give the Ticats a 6-3 lead in the second quarter.

    Masoli attempted to get things going through the air once again, but the Argos added their second turnover of the game when linebacker Ian Wild dislodged the ball out of the hands of Banks after he made a catch. Defensive back Trumaine Washington recovered the ball to set things up for Franklin and the Argos’ offence.

    But possession and momentum quickly changed once again when linebacker Simoni Lawrence picked off Franklin over the middle of the field to give the ball right back to Hamilton. The interception was Lawrence’s second of the season.

    A big 44-yard catch-and-run from receiver Marcus Tucker brought the Tabbies into scoring range, and Thomas-Erlington brought the ball to the doorstep of the end zone with a six-yard run. Masoli kept the ball on the next play and finished off the drive with a quarterback sneak touchdown, and a successful two-point convert pass to Tucker gave Hamilton a 14-3 lead.

    Masoli kept things rolling after Hamilton’s defence quickly forced a punt off a big sack from defensive lineman Ted Laurent. The Ticats moved the ball effectively through the air and on the ground while driving down the field to extend the lead before half time. Rookie running back Maleek Irons made the most of his first two career carries by picking up 13 yards and following it up with a five-yard rushing touchdown. The ensuing two-point convert attempt was unsuccessful, leaving the Ticats with a 20-3 lead.

    The Argos answered back after a big gain from running back James Wilder Jr. and a spectacular catch in traffic from S.J. Green put the team in field goal range with five seconds left to go in the half. Brown hit the 43-yard field goal to make it a two possession game heading into the third quarter.

    A huge run from Thomas-Erlington kicked things off for the Ticats in the second half. The talented runner displayed vision and quickness to find daylight and gain 52 yards up the left side of the field before being knocked out of bounds. Addison reeled in a reception on the next play and turned it up the field, beating Kanneh to the right pylon for a 21-yard touchdown. Tucker secured his second two-point convert catch of the game on the next play to give Hamilton a 26-6 lead.

    The Tabbies remained hot on both sides of the ball as the third quarter unfolded, and the Argos simply could not solve the Ticats’ defensive pressure. Masoli got the ball back and extended his team’s lead once again on a brilliant throw that beat the Argos’ blitz. Masoli kept his eyes down field as pressure came, and the athletic passer completed a pass to Nikola Kalinic for a 31-yard touchdown while falling backwards, the first score of Kalinic’s CFL career. Addison hauled in the two-point convert reception to make the score 34-6.

    Toronto appeared to be on their way to a promising result after Franklin connected with new weapon Derel Walker for a 42-yard gain, but Lawrence sacked Franklin for a big loss two plays later to stall the drive and force a punt.

    Upon getting the ball back, Thomas-Erlington showed that his versatile skill set goes beyond just rushing the ball. The running back looked more like a wide receiver as he stretched out to make a 37-yard finger tip grab over his shoulder. Banks then took a short reception and turned it into a 23-yard gain, setting up Masoli to find Addison with a 10-yard touchdown pass. Hajrullahu added the extra point to put the Black and Gold on top 41-6.

    Things continued to get worse for Toronto when a missed field goal attempt ended up in the hands of Banks. The speedy return specialist caught the ball in the end zone and proceeded to take it the entire length of the field for a 113-yard touchdown. Hajrullahu added the extra point to put Hamilton up 48-6 in the fourth quarter.

    Quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson came in with 13 minutes remaining to take over under centre for Toronto, while Dane Evans came in to relieve Masoli.

    Addison added his third touchdown catch of the game down the stretch to help put the Ticats up 55-6, accelerating up the field for a 44-yard catch-and-run touchdown that further silenced the home crowd.

    Hajrullahu knocked through a 27-yard field goal to give Hamilton a 58-6 lead later on, but the Argos responded with their first touchdown of the game. Bethel-Thompson led a scoring drive that ended with a three-yard touchdown pass to Edwards. Bethel-Thompson then completed the two-point convert to Green to make the score 58-14 with under two minutes to play.

    The final touchdown of the game came from Hamilton’s defence when defensive back Rico Murray intercepted Bethel-Thompson on the final play and returned it 37 yards to give the Ticats a 64-14 victory.

    Week 3 will see the unbeaten Hamilton Tiger-Cats host the Montreal Alouettes on Friday, June 28, while the Toronto Argonauts will be on the road for their next battle when they face the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Monday, July 1.

    Quote of the Day
    “Trying to walk around the bases and get to the plate, and trying to get in the dugout and hold everything in. Man, that was hard. It’s gonna be up there for me — for my career, for my family, my wife, Deidre, and my five kids and my friends and family that are here in town. It’s just a moment that I will treasure forever.”
    Albert Pujols, on his reception in St Louis this weekend

    Sunday’s quiz
    In 2001, Albert Pujols’ rookie season, which position did he play the most games at?

    Saturday’s quiz
    When the Buccaneers came into the NFL in 1976, Seattle Seahawks also joined the league that season.

    Friday’s quiz
    Steve Spurrier played QB for the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who went 0-14 in their first season in the NFL.


    *******************************

    Sunday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind…….

    13) UConn is expected to leave the AAC and go back to the Big East for the 2020-21 season; not sure what this does to their football program, since the Big East isn’t a football league.

    Huskies have made the NCAA basketball tournament only once in the last five years.

    UConn leaving the AAC raises the question: who replaces the Huskies in the AAC?

    12) NHL does their draft better than any other league; the whole league is under one roof, all the coaches/GM’s, and they move the draft around North America every year- they did that before the NFL started doing it.

    Philadelphia Flyers drafted a kid who went to Florida on a golf scholarship, then thought better of it and transferred to Minnesota, where he walked on to the hockey team. Not a lot of guys in the NHL went to college on a golf scholarship.

    11) San Francisco Giants are thinking about taking their bullpens off the field and putting them under the stands in right-center field, which would mean the fences in “Triples Alley” would have to come in, making the dimensions much more hitter-friendly.

    10) Twice in the last week, Cardinals’ pitcher John Flaherty was used as a pinch-runner in the last inning; one time he was thrown out at the plate to end the game, Thursday he got picked off second to end the game. His pinch-running career might be over.

    9) Former Angels’ OF Tim Salmon has the most home runs (299) by anyone who never made an All-Star team.

    8) Talked last week about the Angels DFA’ing OF Carlos Puello; he quickly found a home with the Miami Marlins, where he is now their rightfielder.

    7) Baseball stuff:
    — Indians put P Mike Clevinger (ankle) on IL.
    — MLB suspended Texas 3B Asdrubel Cabrera for four games.
    — MLB suspended Oakland P Frankie Montas for 80 games (PEDs)

    6) New York Daily News was not invited to a Friday press conference for Knicks’ draft picks RJ Barrett and Ignas Brazdeikis, but every other NYC outlet covering the team was. Owner James Dolan doesn’t like the paper’s coverage and has effectively banned them from covering the team.

    Dolan is one of the worst owners in sports, if not the worst.

    5) In his last three starts, Jacob deGrom threw 112-116-113 pitches, which is indicative of teams starting to stretch their better starting pitchers out a little more.

    Stats show that with relievers pitching more and more innings, their ERA’s are going higher and higher, so this is the result of that.

    4) Yu Darvish didn’t get a decision in any of his last ten starts, which ties a big league record that was last done in 1977 (Lerch, D’Acquisto), and has only been done four times ever.

    3) Michigan-Vanderbilt will play a best-of-3 series for the College World Series title starting Monday.

    2) Dodgers 5, Rockies 4— Alex Verdugo hit a walk-off homer for LA- they walked off Colorado Friday night, too.

    1) If the baseball playoffs started today…….
    NL: Atlanta-Chicago-Los Angeles. Wild Cards: Cardinals @ Brewers
    AL: New York-Minnesota-Houston. Wild Cards: Bos/Clev @ Rays
