Based on B.C.’s depth at quarterback and talent at the receiver position, it would be a stretch to say that the Riders have a chance at winning both ends of this home-and-home series.
The Riders did show that they can respond to adversity last week against Toronto. Prior to the win over the Argos, the Riders were manhandled by Calgary. Against Toronto, there were no glaring errors in coverage.
Ricky Ray still threw for close to 400 yards, but this Rider team wasn’t torched by the big play as it was against Winnipeg earlier this year.
On offence, running back Cameron Marshall had a 100-yard game against Toronto. The ground game will be crucial against a talented B.C. defence led by linebacker Solomon Elimimian.
The Lions will win in a hard-fought battle at B.C. Place tomorrow. The Riders will be ready to respond a week from Sunday at Mosaic Stadium.
