107TH GREY CUP PLAYOFF SCENARIOS – WEEK 16

107TH GREY CUP PLAYOFF SCENARIOS – WEEK 16

TORONTO (September 25, 2019) – Below are the 107th Grey Cup playoff scenarios for Week 16:

EAST DIVISION

Montreal Win OR tie combined with Toronto AND Ottawa Losses = Montreal secures a playoff berth

  • A Montreal win this week would give the team 16 points. Toronto and Ottawa losses will result in both teams being unable to accumulate more than 14 points over the course of the remainder of the season.

WEST DIVISION

Saskatchewan Win = Saskatchewan secures a playoff berth

  • A Saskatchewan win would give the team nine victories, preventing them from accumulating more than nine losses. Three clubs have already lost 10 games (Ottawa, Toronto and BC).

Edmonton Win AND a BC Loss = BC eliminated from post-season contention

  • An Edmonton win would give the team 14 points. A BC loss would limit the team’s maximum number of points over the remainder of the season to 14. Edmonton captured the season series to own the tie-breaker.

CLINCHED:

Last week:

  • Calgary clinched its 15th consecutive playoff appearance – the longest run of post-season play in franchise history. It also matched Saskatchewan (1962-1976) for the fifth longest streak all-time.
  • Winnipeg secured its fourth straight playoff spot.
  • Hamilton secured a home playoff date for a second year-in-a-row and the team’s sixth post-season appearance in the past seven seasons.

CROSSOVER RULE:

If the fourth-place team in division A has more points than the third-place team in division B (they cannot be tied), it will cross over and take the place of the third-place team in division B. The team which crossed over will then complete against the second-place team in division B.
