We get an early week start to the Canadian Football League Week Four action as the injury riddled and downtrodden 0-3 Winnipeg Blue Bombers head east to battle the 1-2 Toronto Argonauts. Kickoff for this all CFL East division clash is slated for Wednesday, July 18, 2012, at 7:30 PM ET from Rogers Center in Toronto, Canada. Better offense wins here!
Winnipeg Seeks Winning Edge As Blue Bombers Falter
Sunday, November 29, 2011, is becoming a significant date in Winnipeg. That’s the last time the Blue Bombers won a CFL contest that counted for something – a 19-3 victory over the Hamilton Tigers-Cats in the CFL East Final last season. Since then, the Bombers are 0-4 and have been outscored by a 150-79 combined count.
Not only is the offense struggling, with the least points in the league at 56, but the once vaunted Winnipeg defense has been MIA throughout the first three games as they have allowed 116 points to start the season. Winnipeg will trot out third year import QB Alex Brink in place of the often injured Buck Peirce tonight – ouch!
Toronto Argonauts Look To Get Level During CFL Week Four Action
While they haven’t exactly been ripping up the league, the Argonauts have shown some balance through the first first three weeks of the young CFL season. The Boatmen have allowed the least points in the East at 91 while scoring 81 points on offense. Toronto is looking to regroup after a Week Three 36-27 road loss to Hamilton.
With QB Ricky Ray at the helm, the Argonauts will have the vastly superior quarterback on the field tonight. Winnipeg couldn’t stop QB Steven Jyles and the Eskimos as Edmonton pounded them 42-10 last Saturday. On the road, for a second straight game, we don’t see the Blue Bombers taking out Ray and the Argos in this one.
