CFL Pick 'Em, Week Seventeen: The West continues to be a bloodbath and Ottawa keeps hanging on for dear life. And an administrative note: due to math being hard, it turns out that we still have five weeks of CFL football left to play. Grab your slide rules and make your picks inside.

Toronto gets ahead early but it doesn't last. Hamilton gets ahead early and this time, it lasts. Winnipeg demolishes Edmonton. And in the only close game of the week, while Montreal keeps it interesting, Saskatchewan prevails.

Okay, so I just figured out that there are actually 21 weeks this season, thanks to the schedule rejigging. So NOW it's five! weeks! left!


Winnipeg @ Ottawa (Friday, October 5)
Hot Game of the Week: Winnipeg's been climbing out of the crossover stop and Ottawa's defending its position from Hot Hot Hamilton. Someone's going to go home mad, unless of course they tie.

Toronto @ B.C. (Saturday, October 6)
The Lions' second-half renaissance came to a shuddering halt in Hamilton last week, but a visit from the Argos may just get it started again.

Calgary @ Montreal (Monday, October 8)
Calgary continues its Victory Tour through the East. They've got a playoff spot, and their magic number for the division is a number that you are free to calculate if you like math.

Edmonton @ Saskatchewan (Monday, October 8)
Meanwhile in the rest of the west, nothing is guaranteed. Edmonton's free fall has opened up the race and Saskatchewan has taken full advantage, winning six of their last seven games. Will you bet the trend or is Edmonton better than this?

Good luck!

I think that's my most impressive result all season, which isn't saying much.
