On Sunday evening the 105th edition of the Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup will be played in the nation’s capital as the Toronto Argonauts and Calgary Stampeders will square off in a rematch of the 100th Grey Cup in Toronto.
Both teams capped off an impressive Championship weekend on Sunday as a pair of exciting fourth quarters solidified this Sunday’s matchup. The Argos squandered an 18-3 lead in the fourth quarter to the Saskatchewan Roughriders only to see them punch in the game winning touchdown from one yard out as time was set to expire.
Both Calgary (14-3-1) and Toronto (9-9) come into Sundays championship game as their respective division champions who have taken slightly different paths to those point. The Stampeders are the equivalent to the New England Patriots of the NFL with their constant ability to find ways to win. Sunday will mark the third Grey Cup appearance in four years for Calgary who fell just short of winning last year to Ottawa. Toronto will be making their first appearance since 2012 where they won their last title over the Stamps.
This year was a different story during the regular season as Calgary smoked Toronto in the two games, winning both contests by a combined score of 33 points.

If Toronto have any hope of winning Sunday they must do a better job of protecting the football and not give one of the most explosive offenses in the league any additional opportunities. Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell continues to be one of the most elite quarterbacks in the last decade, and doesn’t need much room to make the opposition pay.
Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray is one of the frontrunners to win the most outstanding player this season passing for 5546 yards and 28 touchdowns. The 38-year old future hall of famer showed that he is still one of the best in the business if his offensive line can give him protection.
Former Montreal Alouettes slotback SJ Green had quite the comeback season in his first wearing the double blue tallying 104 receptions for 1462 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Argos also found a diamond in the rough in former special teamer James Wilder Jr who has become the feature back and averaged a impressive 7.1 yards per attempt on the ground.
