Having already been eliminated from the playoffs during the bye week last week, the Eskimos were playing for pride to close out the season. The Eskimos will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2013 and the fans are not very happy about how this season has gone. With so much uncertainty heading into the offseason, there are a lot of questions surrounding the club and who will and will not be returning next year.
The Edmonton Eskimos have not played well since beating the Calgary Stampeder’s in the Labour Day rematch 48-42. After that game, fans optimistically had thoughts of making a run at first place only to have the team fall flat on their face the next two games and fall to a 7-7 record tied for fourth place in the Western Conference standings. On the other side of the field, the Roughriders are on a roll; winning six of their last seven games and in second place at 9-5.
