Prior to Saturday’s contest against the Argos, I stopped short of saying it was a “must win” game for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
In a nine-team league where six get into the playoffs, a late July contest isn’t “must win.”
Yes, a 2-3 record is better than 1-4. However, let’s remember we haven’t even entered the second third of the regular season yet.
The victory over Toronto was significant because all aspects of the team played a role in the win.
The offensive line did a nice job in allowing time for Kevin Glenn to run the offense. Glenn finished with 340 yards in passing and four touchdowns.
There were no glaring errors in the secondary. Up front the Riders had great pressure, registering five sacks in the football game.
Tyler Crapigna even executed a perfect onside kick.
Duron Carter’s second quarter end zone catch was “the” highlight, but only a footnote in the first true team effort of the season.
