Johnny Manziel Alouettes Football

Johnny Manziel and the Alouettes Travel to face the REDBLACKS

Johnny Manziel has reached week two of the tenure as starting quarterback of the Montreal Alouettes. The fans at TD Place Stadium will see the last place Alouettes and the first place Ottawa RedBlacks. This Saturday night matchup could be intriguing.

Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. ET and can be seen on TSN, RDS and ESPN+.

This will be the second of three meeting between the East Division rivals. The REDBLACKS won on July 6th 28-18. The game was not as close as the score as Ottawa dominated the entire way.

Ottawa has won the last five matchups against Montreal. It includes a three-game sweep last year. Ottawa is 9-4 vs Montreal since 2014.

Montreal is 1-17 in its last 18 games, the poorest stretch of games in the history of the franchise.

REDBLACKS Have Been Consistent All Season

Last time out for Ottawa, they were a 42-41 loser as they battled the Toronto Argonauts on the road. The REDBLACKS failed to cover  as a -6.5-point favorite. The 83 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The East-leading REDBLACKS are also out for redemption. They allowed a Week 8 win to slip through their fingertips.

Argonauts quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson threw the game-winning touchdown with a second left on the clock. It lifted the Boatmen to a 42-41 victory at BMO Field.

The REDBLACKS entered the final 15 minutes with a sizeable 18-point lead. Bethel-Thompson stayed composed in his first CFL start. He found a way to put 22 points on the board in the fourth quarter.

Trevor Harris threw for 381 yards with two touchdowns for the REDBLACKS. He also had one interception.

Receiver Diontae Spencer had a game-high 145 yards on eight catches and a major (TD).

Defensive lineman A.C. Leonard racked up seven tackles and one sack.

Alouettes Hope Johnny Manziel Can Keep Improving in Lost Season

In their last action, Montreal was a 50-11 loser at home against the Tiger-Cats. They failed to cover the +7-point spread as underdogs. The combined score (61) was profitable news for OVER bettors.

Johnny Manziel completed 11 of 20 attempts for 104 yards with no touchdowns and four interceptions. They fell behind 28-0 in the first quarter during the shellacking.

Montreal’s defense gave up 521 yards. The Ticats found the end zone seven times.

From a blocked punt that was run back for a touchdown to six total turnovers. The night was a total disaster.

Montreal is giving up a CFL leading 3406 points per game. That has to change if they want to win tonight.

The Als defense is the only CFL team giving up over 300 passing yards per game on average.
