Edmonton managed to make it to the playoffs, but it was by the skin of their teeth. The Eskimos finished the regular season with an 8-10 record overall. However, the Eskimos are coming into the playoff game here with a +6 in the point differential.
Trevor Harris the was the quarterback who led the Eskimos in passing with 4027 yards, 16 touchdowns and only 6 picks. CJ Gable carried the ball 205 times and just barely eeked out over the 1000 yard mark at 1001 yards. Gable did score 2 touchdowns.
The Alouettes have managed to make the playoffs with a decent 10-8 record. That is quiet surprising after the struggles the Alouettes had early on in the season. The Alouettes finished the year with a -14 point differential.
Vernon Adams Jr. was the quarterback the Alouettes relied on this year. Adams threw for 3942 yards with 24 touchdowns, but was picked off 13 times. William Stanback was a very good runner for the Alouettes all year with 170 carries for 1048 yards and 5 touchdowns.
The Eskimos have to travel in this game and the road has not been kind to Edmonton on the year (3-6). The Alouettes are at home and this season the Alouettes have been decent at home (6-3). Look for that to continue in this game as the Alouettes are able to play slightly better and rely on the running attack for Stanback to bring home the win. Final Score Prediction, Montreal Alouettes win and cover 31-24.
