The Edmonton Eskimos take the Canadian Football League’s leading offense, per Global News, into Hamilton to face another offensive powerhouse in Jeremiah Masoli and the Tiger-Cats as Week 11 in the 2018 CFL season opens up with the Thursday Night Football matchup that will live stream from Tim Hortons Field.
The Eskimos’ 33-year-old quarterback, Mike Reilly, appears headed for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award this season, already tossing for 3,046 yards and 19 touchdowns in his nine games, while throwing just nine picks. Edmonton leads the CFL in total yards per game with 425 and passing yards with 340. Their 18 turnovers are the second-fewest in the CFL this season, trailing only the CFL West pace-setters, the Calgary Stampeders, who have coughed up the ball 17 times to Edmonton’s 18.
The Eskimos are coming off one of the short weeks for which the CFL has acquired a level of notoriety, prompting the league to lengthen the 18-game regular season schedule from 20 weeks to 21, according to a Global News report. But Edmonton played on Saturday night, defeating the struggling Montreal Alouettes 40-24, giving the team a quick turnaround for their second game against Hamilton so far this season.
Hamilton took the first game way back in Week Two by a 38-21 score. But Hamilton Head Coach June Jones says that Edmonton is “a better football team than the team we played in Week Two.”
