The Lions continue their late-season resurgence having put together three-consecutive wins heading into Saturday’s game versus Toronto.
Quarterback Mike Reilly threw for 309 yards and a touchdown on Saturday versus Montreal with Simon Fraser grad Lemar Durant leading the way with 107 receiving yards. Durant is currently enjoying a career-year and sits just 191 yards from the 1000-yard plateau. Another player chasing the 1000-yard mark is running back John White (717), he’ll need to average 71 yards per game to hit the magic number.
While the offence continues to get contributions from multiple players, the Lions’ defence has certainly done its job as well. In addition to a last-second goal line stand in the win over Montreal, the Lions haven’t surrendered more than 23 points in a game since the midway point of the season back in August. They’ll need another complete effort versus a pass-happy Argos club that ranks second in the CFL throwing for 304 yards per game.
It’s the Lions and the Argonauts in the next exciting chapter of ‘win or else.’
