Week 10 | BACK TO BACK LOSSES
Week 10 was an exciting game to the last few plays, but unfortunately, it was not the outcome we had hoped.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders fell short once again to the Stampeders in back to back losses against our Calgary rivals.
A late kick secured the Stampeder win late in the fourth quarter, improving their record to 4-5 and one loss behind Saskatchewan in the West Division.
FANS WEIGH IN
Regardless of the back to back losses to the Stamps, the games were close – and Rider Nation agreed.
While most fans say the game was “disappointing,” – others said it was a “close game” and that the Riders showed “spirit.”
The CFL is so exciting because sometimes a game can come down to the last play. Mind you. Only one team can win. With the Week 10 loss to the Stampeders, fans say that the Roughriders continue to “play until the last play” (30%), which keeps them close in every game!
This week, fans were worried about the Riders passing game (18%), unlike weeks in the past. And as we’ve seen throughout the 2021 season, penalties (20%) continue to be an issue.
GCCI CONTINUES TO DROP
The Grey Cup Confidence Index dropped again this week from -17 to -80, making it the lowest confidence rating reported since Week 6.
The Roughriders have a well-timed Bye Week in Week 11 and before the third and final match-up against the Calgary Stampeders. What do you think the Roughriders need to work on during their week off to stay in the right playoff race in the West Division?
