This Saturday, the Ottawa Redblacks will face off against division rival, Motreal Alouettes at 4:00 ET at TD Place, Ottawa! The Redblacks, who are 2-1 will be playing in their first divisional game of the season.
What to look for
Pass early, run later
Tomorrow will be the first game this season against a division team! So, we’re going to want to score fast! How do you move the ball fast? The pass game… Early in the game, we should see Dominique Davis air the ball out. Once the defense is thinking pass, Mossis Madu shouldn’t have too tough of a time on the run!
Strong return game
Last week, Ryan Lankford had a little mishap which ended in a Winnipeg takeaway… This week, the club let Lankford go and made a roster move which would give both R.J Harris and John Crockett all return responsibilities!
With the team releasing both Ryan Lankford and Troy Stoudermire already because of returning mistakes, both R.J Harris and John Crockett know that they’re playing with their jobs on the line! I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the two returners have a few big returns!
This week, the club brought up running-back, John Crockett from the practice roster. Crockett had 16 touches in the pre-season which led him to 117 total yards. The experienced back should do well with starting running-back, Mossis Madu. Madu has 216 all-purpose yards already this season! If both backs share time for tomorrow’s game, we should have quite the run game!
In the 2019 season, the Ottawa defense has 7 turnovers! One which ended in a touchdown last week, where Jonathan Rose picked up Sherrod Baltimore’s forced fumble!
In tomorrow’s game against Montreal, we should be hungry for a turnover or two!
