  • Through 18 weeks the CFL has two players with 100+ tackles. BC Lions linebacker Adam Bighill was first to record the feat and leads the league with 108 with an additional SEVEN special team tackles
  • Bighill’s accomplishment marked the 33rd time a CFL player has recorded 100+ tackles in a single season
  • 18 players have accomplished this feat
  • This is the THIRD time in Bighill’s five-year CFL career he notched over 100 total tackles in a season. He first did it in 2012 and in 2013
  • First-year player Jeff Knox Jr. on the Saskatchewan Roughriders has notched 101 tackles to join Bighill in the century club
  • This season there could be FIVE players with 100 or more tackles
  • The previous mark for most players in a single season to record 100 or more tackles was three in 2010 when Barrin Simpson, Jamall Johnson and Kevin Eiben did so
  • The other three players that are in striking distance this season are Winston Venable (97), Khalil Bass (93) and Gregory Jones (88)

5,000 YARDS

  • Last week Henry Burris not only eclipsed the 60,000 career passing mark, he also notched 5,000 passing yards in one season for the third-time in his career
  • This is the 35th time in CFL history that a QB has surpassed the 5,000 yard mark and Burris is one of just 16 different players to have reached that plateau
  • Burris is just 219 yards short of tying his career-high passing yards with two games left to play
  • There are FOUR active QBs in the league that have hit the 5,000 yard mark: Henry Burris (2015, 2012 and 2008), Ricky Ray (2008, 2006 and 2005), Kevin Glenn (2010 and 2007) and Darian Durant (2010)
  • Bo Levi Mitchell needs to average 348 passing yards in the final two games to reach 5,000 this season

1,000 YARDS

  • Joining Eric Rogers, Adarius Bowman, Chris Williams, Emmanuel Arceneaux and Marquay McDaniel with 1,000 receiving yards this season are SJ Green and Canadian Brad Sinopoli
  • Sinopoli becomes the second REDBLACKS receiver to reach the milestone, following Chris Williams. This is Sinopoli’s career-high in receiving yards (1,008) and receptions (83) with two games remaining. Teammate Ernest Jackson is now just 65 yards short of 1,000 and Greg Ellingson needs only 106 yards
  • The Ottawa franchise has never had more than TWO 1,000 yard receivers in a single-season
  • There are FOUR more receivers that are less than 100 yards short of the mark including: Edmonton’s Derel Walker (983), Hamilton’s Terrell Sinkfield Jr. (967) and Luke Tasker (951) and Ottawa’s Ernest Jackson (935)
  • On the ground attack, Winnipeg native Andrew Harris is only 13 yards short for his second-career 1,000 yard rushing season


  • Points per game are up 8% from last year or 3.8 points, with offensive points up 18% or 6.6 points
  • 56% of games this season have been decided by in the final three minutes, and 27 games have been decided by 0-4 points. Last season only saw 18 games decided by so few points
  • Toronto Argonauts are 4-0 when their games are decided by 0-4 points. On the flip side, when the games are decided by 11+ points the Argonauts are 1-5
  • Hamilton is 0-4 in games decided by 0-4 points and 8-1 when the game is decided by 11+ points
  • This season there have been 45 comeback victories; Edmonton leads the CFL with 10
  • Edmonton came back from 18 points down to defeat Saskatchewan last week, the 14th win recorded this season by a club that trailed by 10 or more points at some point during a game. Edmonton has made a league-high four of those double-digit comeback wins in 2015
  • Last week, Adarius Bowman pulled to within 60 yards of leading receiver Eric Rogers with a season-high 208 yards on 12 receptions. Over his last two games, Bowman has had 406 yards on 23 catches, the most over a two-game span by any player since Arland Bruce III in 2010. Bruce recorded games of 272 and then 197 yards (27 catches) on July 21, 2010 and August 7, 2010
  • BC’s Andrew Harris rushed for 119 yards last week in a 40-13 win over Hamilton. His total included 80 yards in the 4th quarter
  • Montreal’s Stefan Logan leads the CFL in combined yards (rushing, passing and kick returns) with 2,342 and has broken the Alouettes’ single season punt record with 1,036 yards
  • BC’s Chris Rainey leads the CFL in both punt and kickoff return average at 13.5 and 29.4 yards, respectively. Teammate Bo Lokombo has pulled into a tie for the CFL special teams tackle leadership, matching Deon Lacey with 22
  • Edmonton’s J.C. Sherritt recovered two fumbles in last week’s win over Saskatchewan and is now tied for the CFL lead with three this season
  • Ottawa’s Justin Capicciotti had three sacks last week to move up to #3 in the CFL and the lead among national players. Montreal’s John Bowman also added three sacks, moving up to #2 in 2015 and to #11 all-time with 97 for his career
  • Last week there were only 20.8 penalties per game, the third-lowest week of the CFL season
