Today is Sunday. Yes, the Canadian is playing, but for football fans, this is the best day of the week.
In the one-hour matches, it will be worth watching several good matches, but my favorite is definitely the one between the Texans and the Bengals. On the one hand, there is Joe Burrow, who is back to his usual form after suffering a few early season hiccups.
On the other side: CJ Stroud, who is clearly the best running back of his draft year so far. During the last match, he destroyed the opponent’s defense.
Burrow also arrived at the game in style. He was wearing an old Alouettes jersey with the name “Burrow” on the back. That’s because his father played for the Montreal team in the 70s and 80s.
Yes sir, Joe Brr.

A great way to pay tribute to my father’s old team, which just reached the Gray Cup final. Montreal beat the Toronto Argonauts 38-17 at home yesterday. Montreal’s defense was sensational, and even the defending champions and the best team of the 2023 season couldn’t match it.
This is the first time since 2010 that Als advance to the grand final.
In last night’s second conference final (CFL), the Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeated the British Columbia Lions 24-13. Winnipeg and Montreal will face each other next Saturday at 18:00 in Hamilton, as part of the 110th Gray Cup.
Green Day will be there for halftime. Voucher show it is to be expected, therefore.
As for Burrow, he and his team are in last place in the North Division. However, with a 5-3 record, they are currently in position to make the playoffs. In fact, every club in this division (Ravens, Steelers and Browns) would have made them if they started today.
We’ll see if Jim Burrow’s sweater works as a good luck charm for his son. This isn’t the first time the big (American) point guard has worn Montreal merchandise. Tom Brady has been doing this for a long time, since he was drafted by the Expos.
Now, Burrow must wear the CH captain’s jersey.

As for the Texans, their 4-4 record is good for second place in the South Division. Houston hasn’t had big ambitions this season, but the offense led by Stroud keeps the team in every game. The Texas team is very exciting and is definitely my “favorite” team.
