CFL Pick 'Em, Week Twenty: A tie for the lead! No divisions clinched! There's work to be done, CFL pickers. Roll up your flannel plaid sleeves and make your picks inside.

The drama continues! Hamilton blows a lead and maybe the division in a tough loss to Ottawa. Edmonton continues their skid as B.C. all but secures a playoff spot. Toronto doesn't lose. But whoa, Calgary does: Saskatchewan's win leaves a path for the Riders to take the West.

Speaking of volatile standings: a tie for first, a tie for third, and five players within three points of first. A polite nod to cixelsyd for nailing the Ottawa win on his way to six points and a share of the lead.

Two weeks left and we have tons of unfinished business. Better put on a fresh pot of coffee.

WEEK 20

Calgary @ Winnipeg (Friday, October 26)
Calgary's still on top, but they haven't beaten a team from the West since Week 12. They need to remember how to do that if they don't want to slide to second. Meanwhile Winnipeg is faced with the ages-old conundrum: do you fight to stay in the West playoff race, or ease up and slide into the East crossover?

Ottawa @ Hamilton (Saturday, October 27)
Ottawa's got a big leg up but we're not quite settled yet: Hamilton needs to win out, and Ottawa would need to lose out, for the Ti-Cats to take the division away.

B.C. @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, October 27)
If Saskatchewan hadn't been shut out by Winnipeg in Week 18, they'd be in first place right now. (That was a weird thing to type.) Either way this is their last chance: with a final-week bye, Saskatchewan needs to win this game to keep the hope alive.

Toronto @ Montreal (Saturday, October 28)
This space intentionally left blank.

Good luck!

Calgary by 19, picked well after the game began but before I looked at a score.
