Going into week 11 of the CFL season, the Redblacks are 3-6 and going up against the 5-3 red hot Saskatchewan Roughriders.
The Roughriders are on a 4 game winning streak while they face-off against your Redblacks who are on a 2 game losing streak at 7:00 on Saturday night.
Looking back at it
The Redblacks have already played the Roughriders this season, a 44-41 win for Ottawa for the Redblacks home opener.
In the game on June 20th, the Redblacks Dominique Davis threw for 354 yards and 3 touchdowns while Lewis Ward went 6 for 6 to set up a few massive defensive plays which added up to six tackles for Chris Randle, Jonathan Rose and Danny Mason.
Whats new about tomorrow’s game?
In the last meeting against Saskatchewan, the Redblacks offense was missing a spark. That spark being at the running back position.
When we last played the Roughriders, Mossis Madu played at running back and rushed for just 50 yards. This week, we’ll see John Crockett back in the lineup as the Redblacks face off against the western opponent
What to look forward to
Receiver Caleb Holley is on his old turf
For the last few seasons before 2019, Caleb Holley has played for the Roughriders, where he caught for over 1,000 yards just last year.
This week, Saskatchewan welcomes Holley back to play against him while he wears red and black. This might be a big outing for Holley after a game last week where he caught for over 70 yards.
John Crockett is back
John Crockett, who has 394 rush yards in just 4 starts will be back in the lineup after missing last week’s game due to injuries.
John Crockett is yet to have a 100 yard rush game, and this might be his perfect opportunity.
