    TSN football analyst Chris Schultz is back with his Week 15 selections in the CFL. [b]Rafael Marquez Jersey[/b] . The Big Man finished 3-1 in Week 14, and sits at 36-21 on the season. Now Schultz is ready for more action. Winnipeg at Ottawa Really important game for the Bombers to keep Western playoff hopes alive and to keep confidence high. You have to express compliments to Drew Willy and the 303 yards passing last game and the way he played coming off the shoulder injury. Both teams will be well prepared for critical moments as both teams last week did not capitalize on the opportunities given to win (Winnipeg) or tie the game (Ottawa). When you look at the make up of the roster Ottawa has players that will continue to improve. The conversation over the next six games will be is Henry Burris the guy for the present and future. Tough assessment because until you have another quarterback in camp to compare skills against, the answer is yes. Henry still makes the critical mistake at the critical moment but still can be extremely effective. Youth may not be on his side but experience is and that has value. The Bombers started 5-1, then went 1-5 and now here in the final one third of the season are 0-1. I say they even it up to 1-1. Bombers over Redblacks on Friday night. Saskatchewan at Calgary Not sure who will start at quarterback because I am not sure of the patience level of Cory Chamblin and George Cortez with the present quarterbacks. And, is there anyone else out there who can be a productive player at footballs toughest position? Realistic answer is no. The Riders are a good team at many different levels. Tyron Brackenridge may be the best at his position. John Chick may be the best at his position. Brendan Labatte, Westin Dressler, three good running backs and I could go on and on and on. With a possibility of Bo Levi Mitchell back, or not a bad second choice at all in Drew Tate, the quarterback advantage belongs to Calgary. What is the difference between Mitchell and Tate? Deep ball accuracy and ability. Tate missed four opportunities last Saturday night in BC and could have made it a comfortable win for Calgary instead of such a grinding one. Would Mitchell had made those throws based on what I have seen this year? Yes. These teams are more similar than different in all areas of football except for one. We know which one. Stampeders. Edmonton at Toronto Toronto is coming off its second and final bye week of the year and may be at their best right now. Chad Owens and Andre Durie will be back and Chad Kackert will resume a roll as a player in either a running back capacity or special teams influence but having him back enhances the team in an additional way. And Toronto starts a string of four home games in a row and if they win all four the East could go through Toronto on the way to the Grey Cup. For Edmonton it was a big time win over western opponent Saskatchewan but now it is Richard Ray that they have to prepare for. Major difference. I think Edmonton is the better team, Toronto the rested team, Edmonton the more aggressive team, Toronto the more explosive team. In the end, Argos over Edmonton. B.C. at Hamilton The Ticats have the best schedule to work with of the CFLs nine clubs. This game Saturday night ends the west for them and begins the East. After BC it is at Toronto, Ottawa, at Toronto, at Ottawa and Montreal at home. That represents opportunity. A lot is coming together for Hamilton, not as much for BC. I am not sure why Kevin Glenn was substituted for John Beck in the second half as Glenn did go back in and looked as Kevin Glenn always looked. Andrew Harris is out for the Lions as he needs ankle surgery. BC needs this one as there is not much separating the Lions, Bombers and Riders. The Lions are up and down, the Ticats are improving. Hamilton. [b]Mexico Blank Jersey[/b] .Y. -- Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff had an opportunity to experience an entire range of emotions in his first trip back to Buffalo to face his former team. [b]Jesus Molina Jersey[/b] . On the eve of the 2013-14 NBA season, he can finally take a step back and allow his team to do the talking.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tom Brady looked into the end zone and found his favourite receiver. Rob Gronkowski caught the ball then slammed it to the ground. The familiar spike was back after the star tight ends first touchdown of an injury-delayed season. So was the Patriots offence. Brady shook off the inconsistency of his first eight games, threw for season-highs of 432 yards and four touchdowns and led New England to a 55-31 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. "You throw it, they catch it, they run with it," he said. "It makes a good day for a quarterback." The Patriots (7-2) go into their bye week with a two-game lead in the AFC East despite playing mediocre football for most of the first half of the season. The 55 points were the most scored in an NFL game this season and the most ever against the Steelers (2-6). The Patriots 610 yards were the third most in team history and the most ever allowed by Pittsburgh. "We are going to comb through this with a fine tooth comb," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said, "and those people who are lacking effort wont be playing. Its just that simple." Brady had 252 yards passing in the first half, more than in five of his other eight games. And 119 of those came on seven catches by Gronkowski in his third game since missing the first six recovering from surgeries on his left forearm and back. He finished with a career-high nine catches for 143 yards. He caught his 19-yard touchdown pass with 4:30 gone in the second quarter as the Patriots took a 14-0 lead. "It felt great out there," Gronkowski said. "It was important for us to play this way. Until now, we hadnt been clicking for all four quarters." The Steelers wasted a solid performance by Ben Roethlisberger, who completed 28 of 48 passes for 400 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions. The excitement began before the game when Boston Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester, accompanied by several teammates, carried the World Series trophy onto the field. "Im not sure exactly how it all happened today," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "Maybe we got inspiration from the Red Sox." The Patriots gained the most yards in the NFL last season but were just 18th in that category going into Sundays game. And Brady threw for just 116 yards a week earlier in a 27-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. But he was sharp all day Sunday, completing 23 of 33 passes against a defence that let receivvers run free for several long receptions, including a 57-yarder to Danny Amendola that set up Stephen Gostkowskis 20-yard field goal that made it 17-3. [b]Hugo Ayala Jersey[/b]. Brady threw scoring passes of 34 yards to Amendola, and 17 and 81 yards to Aaron Dobson, while Stevan Ridley rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns as part of a 197-yard ground game. The Patriots led 24-10 at halftime before the Steelers tied it on their first two series of the third quarter on Roethlisbergers touchdown passes to Jerricho Cotchery of 20 and 8 yards. He added a 6-yarder to Cotchery midway through the fourth quarter that made it 41-31. But two plays after the kickoff, Brady launched a pass down the left sideline that Dobson caught at the Steelers 40 and carried into the end zone. LeGarrette Blount got the final touchdown on a 5-yard run with 2:41 left. Three Patriots had more than 100 yards receiving, Gronkowskis 143, Dobson with 130 and Amendola with 122. "Its embarrassing for our organization to give up points like that," Steelers safety Ryan Clark said. Brady "is the most accomplished quarterback of our era. Tom Brady played like Tom Brady." Roethlisberger turned the ball over twice on his first two series when he fumbled then threw an interception. "Were all angry and disappointed," Roethlisberger said, Brady "is good, so you know that your mistakes have to be limited." After Gronkowskis touchdown, Pittsburghs Shaun Suisham and Gostkowski traded field goals before Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a 27-yard touchdown. It was the 200th touchdown pass of Roethlisbergers career, second in Steelers history to Terry Bradshaws 212. The Patriots got the ball back with 1:50 left in the half and went 77 yards on nine plays to a 1-yard scoring run by Ridley. After Cotchery tied it at 24, the Patriots took the lead for good on Gostkowskis 32-yard field goal. "When (Gronkowskis) healthy and on the field, hes tough to stop," Brady said, "Its been a process for us, but at the bye week, 7-2 is not bad and, hopefully, our best footballs ahead of us." NOTES: The Patriots scored at least 50 points for the sixth time with Brady as their starting quarterback. ... New England has 36 straight games with at least one takeaway, the current longest streak in the NFL. ... The Steelers fell to 2-6 for the first time since 2006, the season after they won the Super Bowl. ' ' '
