Eskimos Clinch Playoff Berth
(Edmonton) - The Edmonton Eskimos have secured their place in the playoffs following tonight's victory over the BC Lions.
Since the win ensures Edmonton will finish with a minimum of 16 points and the team already owns the tie-breaker over the BC Lions, the Eskimos are assured of a playoff spot via the crossover rule as Ottawa and Toronto cannot earn more points than Edmonton.
The playoffs begin on Sunday, November 10 with the CFL division semi-finals followed by the division finals the following Sunday, November 17.
The 107th Grey Cup will be played at Calgary's McMahon Stadium on Sunday, November 24.
