With the first Grey Cup being contested since 2019, it’s only right that Winnipeg would try to make history in the process. The Blue Bombers won in 2019, beating Hamitlon 33-12 for their 11th Grey Cup title.
This year’s Grey Cup features a rematch of the two teams, something which hasn’t happened since 2009-10 when Montreal and Saskatchewan faced off in both years, with Montreal winning both times. The Blue Bombers are also looking to become the first repeat champions since that Alouettes team in 2010.
Winnipeg boasts the league’s Most Outstanding Player in quarterback Zach Collaros, who was second in completion percentage and yards but led the league in touchdowns. Kenny Lawler, the league’s only 1,000-plus yard receiver and the league’s leader in that category, also plays for Winnipeg, giving the Blue Bombers’ offense a real chance to take over the game.
Thanks in part to Collaros and Lawler, the Blue Bombers’ offense was one of the league’s best, ranking second in both points and yards per game.
Hamilton, meanwhile, finished the year at 8-6 and have a tall task in front of them, but also benefit from having a home game in the finals. The Tiger-Cats are 5-2 at home this year and have the league’s leader in interceptions in Cariel Brooks, so if he can lock in on Lawler, the Tiger-Cats may have a chance.
