The Redblacks are coming back to the season with a chance to start the year off right. However, the Ottawa team is in much of the same boat as all the teams this year and that is losing out on the entire season las year.

Dominique Davis is the quarterback who is coming back for the Redblacks this year. Davis threw for only 2216 yards and 5 touchdowns, but was picked off 14 times. The rushing offense for the Redblacks has to replace Crockett who led the rushing attack with 454 yards, but no touchdowns.

Edmonton did make some major changes during the missed season. The main change that the Elks made was the change in their name to Elks. The Edmonton team used to be referred to as the Edmonton Eskimos, but is now the Edmonton Elks.

Trevor Harris is coming back to guide the Elks. In the 2019 campaign Harris threw the ball for 4027 yards and 16 touchdowns, but was picked off only 6 times. Gable has to be replaced this year year and that is going to cost the Elks 1001 yards on the ground.

Edmonton Elks

The Edmonton team is coming here having to replace the leading rushing attack, but have a lot of potential on the year with a good quarterback coming back to guide the team. Ottawa for their part is coming back without their depth that would be expected at running back and without a major passing offensive threat. Final Score Prediction, Edmonton Elks win 24-14.
