CFL Pick 'Em, Week Sixteen: Apparently it wasn't enough to have a new leader every week: we now have multiple players tied for first. Halve your Windsors and make your picks inside.

Saskatchewan rides a big fourth quarter to edge the Redblacks at home. Calgary does their thing in a big way. It takes overtime, but Toronto finally puts a stop to Hamilton's little run, while Winnipeg guts out a tough one in Edmonton to solidify their second-place standing.

Grab your iced turkey, folks - it's Canadian Thanksgiving.

WEEK 16

Hamilton @ Winnipeg (Friday, October 6)
Winnipeg's secured themselves a pretty good spot, while Hamilton's playoff odds are a real long shot. But sometimes those who have the least to lose are the most desparate?

Saskatchewan @ Toronto (Saturday, October 7)
Um! I can't figure out either of these teams. But if Toronto can hold down home turf, they'll emerge with a winning record: a true feat in the East.

Ottawa @ B.C. (Saturday, October 7)
I know I keep harping on this, but it's crazy. Ottawa's Pythagorean record is 8-7 and a comfy lead in the East. Their actual record is 5-9-1 and they can't seem to catch a break. Will it ever end?

Edmonton @ Montreal (Monday, October 9)
The Alouettes had a good little run there for a while, but they've been outscord 166-91 over their past 5 games. It was nice while it lasted.

Good luck!

A 3-way tie for the lead! "You can cover 'em with a handkerchief", says the track announcer. Let's see if we can stay in the bunch, or even better put a little daylight behind me>

Tigercats against the Blue Bombers. Only the Grumman F-4F Wildcat and F-6F Hellcat had feline success against bombers, and that was 75 years ago. Winnipeg by 10

The cavalry face the ancient sailors. The only thing that seems to make a difference here is the venue. Toronto by 6

Redblacks go to the Lions' den. Unless the Lions have been well fed, Redblacks might be devoured. They put up a good fight but... BC by 3

The team with the name that must not be mentioned goes to meet the little birds. Alouettes will not be able to fly in this one. Edmonton by 13
