Calgary Stampeders Game Today
The Calgary Stampeders, sitting at 2-4, are hoping to bounce back from a loss to the Ottawa Redblacks last week. Their offense showed signs of a resurgence, with Jake Maier throwing for a whopping 450 yards and four touchdowns. Marken Michel and Tre Odoms-Dukes were standouts in the receiving yards, making them key players to watch for this game.
However, their run game seems to be in a spot of bother. Dedrick Mills, the replacement for the injured star Ka’Deem Carey, managed only 21 yards last week. Against Montreal’s run defense, currently allowing 97.8 yards per game, Calgary will need more from their ground game.
Montreal Alouettes Game Today
The Montreal Alouettes find themselves at 2-3. The team has struggled in protecting its quarterback, Cody Fajardo, allowing a league-worst 26 sacks this season. However, Fajardo maintains a solid 101.2 quarterback rating heading into the game. Austin Mack, with 458 receiving yards, has been his favourite target this season and will be crucial against Calgary’s solid secondary.
In the run game, William Stanback has had a slow start, but he will be eyeing a breakout game against Calgary’s defense, which has struggled to contain rushers.
