CFL Playoff Pick 'Em, Division Finals Edition: The Lions' crossover journey fizzles out, and Saskatchewan's playoff hopes are buried in the snow. Who saw that coming? (Answer: not very many of us.) Grab your fuzzy mittens and make your picks inside.

What a trouncing! Hamilton holds B.C. off the scoreboard until the fourth quarter and piles up 48 points in the process. Not much to say here except ouch.

Out west, remember sneaky good Winnipeg? They snuck right and took out the Roughriders! In Regina! In the snow! With a very solid performance on both sides of the ball. Wild card!

In bonus-land, Lauther edges out the competition with 12 points, and the snowy Saskatchewan weather gets us the under.

DIVISION FINALS

Hamilton Tigers-Cats (8-10) @ Ottawa Redblacks (11-7) (Sunday, November 18, 1:00pm ET)

Hamilton's season has really turned on their record against Ottawa: three games, three losses, six points out of first place. This weekend they get their fourth and final chance, on the road against a well-rested Redblacks team. But Hamilton has show flashes of good this season, and if they can win the turnover game, anything can happen.

Winnipeg is kind of a sexy underdog. This marks the very first time in recorded history that anyone has used the words "Winnipeg" and "sexy" in the same sentence. They're better than you think they are and lost a lot of close games. But you know who didn't lose a lot of games, period? Calgary.
