WEEK 7 | Back-to-Back Loss Against Argos
By scoring a solid 17 points in the 4th quarter, the Toronto Argos steal back-to-back wins against the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Week 7, knocking Saskatchewan down to 4th place in the West Division.
With the Riders on a two-loss streak, let’s find out what the fans say about their performance in Week 7.
FANS WEIGH IN
With back-to-back losses, the Saskatchewan Roughriders look to bounce back against the B.C. Lions who sit 4 and 1 going into Week 8. As a result, it is no surprise that fans say that their loss was “disappointing,” “painfully exciting,” and “intense.”
Once again, fans say that the defensive line (43%) was a massive reason for their recent success. In addition, Rider Nation says that “stopping the run” (23%) and “offensive running game” (25%) also seem to contribute.
As it has seemed for the last several weeks, fans believe penalties (55%) continue to be the Roughriders’ biggest weakness this season.
A shift in Confidence?
With the added losing streak, the Grey Cup Confidence Index continues to dip. In Week 7, the GCCI dropped from -46 to -78.
The Roughriders are set to face off against the red hot B.C. Lions. Will Saskatchewan bounce back in Week 8 or will the B.C. Lions take advantage of Saskatchewan’s discipline issues and win at home?
