Week number 4 gets under way on Sunday, July 21st at 7:00pm ET For the Ticats and the Riders from Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field in Regina, Saskatchewan.
For the Hamilton Tiger-Cats they came out swinging and were able to score some points on the Blue Bombers strong defense winning their week 3 game 25 – 20. Henry Burris had something to prove after he vowed to have a better performance in this game then he had the previous week and he for sure didn’t disappoint. Burris went 26 for 32 for 362 passing yards and 2 touchdowns. He also rushed the ball for 47 yards so he defiantly held up his end of his bargain. He accomplished these amazing passing numbers without star wide out Andy Fantuz and Onrea Jones. Burris, with this big game, moved into a tie with Matt Dunigan for 4th place on the all-time Touchdown Passing list with 306.
For the Saskatchewan Roughriders they also won their week 3 game 39 – 28 over the usually strong Toronto Argonauts. If the 2013 CFL Season has shown us anything so far it’s that it has been anything but predictable. I mean did any one except for some die hard Rider fans expect them to be at 3-0 on the season? Although Riders QB Darian Durant left the game in the 4th quarter with an apparent lower body injury, he still managed to put up some outstanding numbers. He connected on 14 of 19 pass attempts and collected 245 yards and 3 touchdowns in the air. He also rushed for 24 yards on 2 attempts on the ground. Other big game performances came from wideout Taj Smith; 3 catches for 141 yards and 2 scores, and running back Kory Sheets; 26 carries for 178 rushing yards and 2 scores
