The bat­tles in the trenches

Of­fen­sively, the Es­ki­mos and Bombers fin­ished first and sec­ond over­all in of­fen­sive points this sea­son, with 27.2 and 26.7 per game, re­spec­tively. De­fen­sively, the Es­ki­mos and Bombers fin­ished sec­ond and third over­all in to­tal quar­ter­back sacks and pres­sures this sea­son, with 165 and 160, re­spec­tively. So the most run­ning we might see from these high-oc­tane of­fences are the quar­ter­backs scram­bling for their lives. Then again, Es­ki­mos QB Mike Reilly en­joyed the league’s top pass pro­tec­tion this year, tak­ing just 29 sacks this year. The Bombers are no slouches them­selves, fin­ish­ing tied for fourth with 38 sacks sur­ren­dered and al­low­ing the fewest pres­sures in the league with 71.
