Roughriders Football

Roughriders Looking to Break Two Game Losing Streak

The fans at Mosaic Stadium will be see the upstart Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders when they take their seats on Thursday. The Tiger-Cats and Roughriders are two teams that carry much different story-lines heading into Week 4.

The Ticats are riding high. They have picked up wins against two tough teams in the West. They find themselves going for a third straight victory. Head Coach June Jones has this Offense humming.

While the Roughriders started off the season strong with a convincing win over the reigning Grey Cup champs have slid. They now find themselves 1-2 after a pair of lopsided losses.

Oddsmakers have the Tiger-Cats as 7-point favorites. The total is sitting at 51. Kickoff is at 9:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on TSN, ESPN+.

Roughriders a Rare Home Dog to Tiger-Cats as they Face Injury Issues

Saskatchewan will be without starting quarterback Zach Collaros for a second straight week. Collaros left the Riders’ Week 2 game against the Ottawa REDBLACKS with a head injury. He is currently sitting on the six-game injured list.

The Riders will once again put their faith in backup QB Brandon Bridge. They are starting him despite being pulled in the team’s 23-17 loss to the Montreal Alouettes last week. Bridge completed just eight of 18 passes for 111 yards with a pair of interceptions.

Even after the Riders replaced Bridge with backup David Watford, the team struggled. They couldn’t seem to find any momentum. Watford did find Naaman Roosevelt for the Riders only Touchdown (Major) of the game.  He also threw two picks of his own.

Head coach Chris Jones made the decision late in the game to put star receiver turned cornerback, Duron Carter on offense. He was trying to provide a spark for the team. Carter will start in the secondary for a third straight week.

Tiger-Cats Riding High as They Face the Roughriders

The Black and Gold made a statement last week. They had a dominant 31-17 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli completed 31 of 41 attempts for 369 yards. He had one touchdown pass and one interception.

It was the eighth straight game he has broken the 300-yard passing mark.

Brandon Banks led all receivers with 111 yards. Sean Thomas-Erlington rushed for 92 yards in the victory. Mercer Timmis was effective when needed, as he found the end zone twice.

The Ticats are one of the most pleasant surprises to start the CFL season. They needed nine games to pick up their first win in 2017. The Ticats now have twice as many victories as they did halfway through last season.

The team will be without defensive end Adrian Tracy. He was injured in last weeks win against the Bombers. First year Ticat Julian Howsare will get the start in his place.
