CFL Playoffs Pick 'Em, Grey Cup Edition: Both road teams win the day in the division finals, and our match-up is set. Hamilton journeys to Regina to take on the watermelon-clad hordes of Rider Nation. You, on the other hand, have the option of staying inside and toasty warm this Sunday, so why not light a fire, find your fuzzy socks, and make your picks inside.

Toronto comes out strong, but falls apart in the second half as Hamilton books their trip to Regina. Meanwhile, the Team of Destiny runs roughshod over the Stamps, and the 'Riders get to play a Grey Cup at home.

In hot bonus action, Saskatchewan nets 536 yards of combined offence to lead the way. And there were exactly seven fumbles in the two division finals, so the unders squeak out a point.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (10-8) @ Saskatchewan Roughriders (11-7) (Sunday, November 24)

Hamilton, kicked out of their home stadium and forced to wander in the wilderness, had a wildly inconsistent year, but have managed to pull it together at the right time to charge into the Grey Cup. Saskatchewan, on the other hand, set their sights on this game the moment it was awarded: Grey Cup games at home don't come around all too often, and you'd better be ready for 'em. With the exception of an injury-sparked slump in the September heat, Saskatchewan has been gunning hard for this all year. Grey Cup Preview

MVP Bonus

Pick the MVP of the Grey Cup game.


The points-scored O/U is currently set at 53.5. Will the number of points scored be over or under that mark?

Tiebreaker Bonus

Pick the average yardage for all punts in the Grey Cup game. This is a tiebreaker only and will not be worth any points. Remember, it's Saskatchewan in late November.

Good luck!

Drat, I thought I was going to be the only one using "Hamilton" and "Grey Cup champions" in the same sentence. Welcome the Cup to Guelphilton.

Saskatchewan has become my favorite team although I have only seen them play once. When the blew the Grey Cup and, more importantly, blew my chance at a CFL Playoff Pick Em title. Go Roughriders?

Oh right, the too many men penalty. That was classic.
