TORONTO (October 21, 2019) – Below are the 107th Grey Cup playoff scenarios for Week 20:


Calgary Win OR Tie = Calgary clinches a home playoff date

Calgary Win AND Saskatchewan Loss = Calgary clinches first place in the division and will host the Western Final on November 17

Saskatchewan Win OR Tie = Saskatchewan clinches a home playoff date


  • Calgary clinched its 15th consecutive playoff appearance in Week 15.
  • Winnipeg secured its fourth straight spot in the post-season in Week 15.
  • Saskatchewan claimed a post-season berth for the third consecutive year in Week 16.
  • Montreal earned its first playoff spot since 2014 in Week 17 and claimed Eastern Semi-final hosting duties in Week 18.
  • After reserving the right to host a home playoff date for a second year-in-a-row in Week 15, Hamilton secured home field for the Eastern Final in Week 18.
  • Edmonton clinched a playoff berth as the crossover team in Week 18 and will head to the post-season for the fifth time in six seasons.


Edmonton, the fourth-place team in the West Division, has more points than Toronto, the third-place team in the East Division, and will therefore, cross over and claim the third playoff spot in the East Division. This marks the fourth consecutive year in which a team has crossed over – a new CFL record.

At 2-1, Edmonton is the only crossover team with a winning record since the rule came into effect in 1996.

Montreal will host Edmonton in the Eastern Semi-final on November 10. The Alouettes are a perfect 3-0 when hosting the crossover team.


  • Winnipeg can still host a playoff game if the team defeats Calgary this week and the Stampeders lose to BC in Week 21
  • A Winnipeg victory this week, a Calgary loss next week and two Saskatchewan losses would result in a three-way tie atop the West Division at 11-7. The common record between the three teams and the higher winning percentage will then serve as the tie-breaker. In this scenario:
    • Calgary: 3-2 (.600)
    • Winnipeg: 3-3 (.500)
    • Saskatchewan: 2-3 (.400)
