The Blue Bombers will play the final two matches of the regular season on October 26 and November 3.
The first one will take place on the home ground against the Calgary team. Winning any match guarantees the Bombers getting into the playoffs for the third time in a row. The team can be third or fourth in the Western Division.
The Blue Bombers have been playing badly on the home arena with Calgary for a long time. The last victory is dated 2009 when Winnipeg won 42-30. After that, they lost 9 home matches against Stampeders in a row.
The Bombers won the last four games in a row, and this is the best series in the league at the moment. The Calgary team, on the contrary, is in bad shape and has already lost two straight games. The victory will allow Winnipeg to achieve a double-digit number of victories in the third straight regular season.
The Bombers leader Harris again competes with Powell from Ottawa for the rushing crown of the CFL. Last year, Andrew Harris won, and this season Powell has the advantage of 93 yards. Despite the fact that Harris has already scored a record 1269 yards for his career, Powell is ahead of him with 1362 yards.
The defense of the Bombers in recent games has become really impressive. For five games, they allowed their opponents 4 touchdowns and are second in the league in this indicator.
Friday’s last home game of the season will be in support of breast cancer patients. It is called the Pink Game, and the funds raised from the sale of Pink goods at the stadium and in the Bomber Shop will go to help patients with this disease in Manitoba. Fans will also be able to support the Salvation Army and donate new toys or money to this organization that will go to help those in need.
