The upper bowl of Rogers Centre is being opened up for Sunday’s East Final between the Ticats and Argos.
And fans at the Dome will no doubt be expecting some fireworks when these two dangerous offences take the field.
But don’t underestimate the play of both defences.
Even though Toronto’s D have given up the most yards this season, they’ve allowed the 4th fewest points in 2013.
Hamilton is 5th in yards allowed, and 5th in points, giving up just 10 more points than the Boatmen this season.
The biggest difference between the two teams on “D” is creating turnovers and sacks.
Toronto had 50 takeaways this season, 3rd highest in the league, while the Ticats managed to cause just 32, the second fewest in the CFL this year.
The Argos plus 18 to Hamilton’s minus 13 turnover ratio is concerning and the coaches and players are mindful of that.
The Cats are also last in sacks for and against, while Toronto is 7th and 6th in that category.
Yes, stats offer a glimpse of what can or may happen, but at the same time, they are not a true 100% indicator of what will happen.
I can tell you this, turnovers will be big on Sunday, and the team that makes the fewest mistakes will have the better chance at winning.
