Eskimos clinch playoff spot, now what?

By Admin User on October 31, 2017

The Eskimos just keep winning. The team is on a three-game winning streak, after beating the BC Lions on Saturday. This victory follows a thrilling comeback win over the Toronto Argonauts,  which punched their ticket to the CFL playoffs.

The Eskimos head coach says his team went out and did exactly what he wanted them following their clinching playoff win.

“Our focus is more on today and getting better today so that we can go and beat BC because that’s what ultimately we want to do this week, it’s the only game we get to play, it’s the only measuring stick we have of how good we can play, is playing them at their place and trust me that’s the only thing we’re focused on right now,” said Jason Maas, Eskimos head coach

The Eskimos can still claim home-field advantage with two games remaining in the season. Quarterback Mike Reilly wants his team to be firing on all cylinders by the time the playoffs start.

“There’s still some football left to be played, and at this point, you need to be building up to playing the best football you can,” said Reilly.

While the Calgary Stampeders are unreachable at this point in the season, the Eskimos can still pass the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for second place in the West division. The Eskimos are looking to continue their win streak against the first place Stampeders this Saturday at Commonwealth Stadium. The schedule has their last two games being played here in Edmonton.
