CFL Pick 'Em, Week 16: Four weeks left and cixelsyd has built himself a nice little lead. Then again, that's exactly what Saskatchewan was telling themselves eight weeks ago. Count your turkeys and make your picks inside.

Toronto's magic streak comes to an end as the Ti-Cats keep their division hopes alive. Saskatchewan guts out a tough win in B.C. to climb back into second place. Montreal staves off crossover fears with a big win in Edmonton, and Calgary pads their lead with a win over Winnipeg.

cixelsyd's lead widens to six points, and with four weeks left, that's starting to look pretty insurmountable.

Canadian Thanksgiving traditionally marks the final stretch of the CFL season, as teams quickly find out which players can and can't resist the temptation of poutine turkey.


B.C. @ Calgary (Friday, October 11)
Calgary's been the superior team in the west, but B.C. has the desparation of a team seeking a playoff edge. Then again, Calgary actually has a quarterback.

Edmonton @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, October 12)
Speaking of desparation, Saskatchewan still has a slim chance at the division title and Edmonton's playing out the string. I know where my money is on this one.

Winnipeg @ Montreal (Monday, October 14)
Well, look at this: Montreal's been on a little tear. And Winnipeg's probably not going to put much of a stop to that.

Toronto @ Hamilton (Monday, October 14)
Here we go again: Toronto missed a golden opportunity to all but clinch the division last week, but here they get a second kick at the can. And we're getting awfully close to Ricky Ray's return...

Good luck!

I tried to do the numbers, figuring how I could still win this little group, then I realized it wasn't worth doing as it's virtually impossible.

Well, let's see. The average points per week is 2.5, so let's say cixelsyd ends up with 63 points at the end, which means you'd need 64 to beat him. That's 25 points, which is three 6-points week and one 7-point week. Not impossible, but yes, highly unlikely.

So you're saying there's a chance?
