REGINA — Is there anything Duron Carter can’t do?

The Riders’ boisterous receiver started his first game at corner in Week 18 and after all the trash talk, he was the one getting the last laugh against Bo Levi Mitchell.

Carter’s pick-six has been all over the highlights since it occurred in last Friday’s 30-7 win over Calgary, but it also offers some historical significance.

The defensive touchdown marked the fourth different way Carter has scored over his four-year career, putting him in a very exclusive club.

In addition to his pick-six, Carter has also scored on multiple touchdown catches, a missed field goal return and a fumble.

The touchdown grabs have come in spades for the 26-year-old, who’s consistently put up big numbers as a pass-catcher in the CFL. Carter has 3,914 yards and 25 touchdowns in his career, never failing to eclipse 909 yards and five touchdowns in any of his four seasons (three of which were spent in Montreal).

One of Carter’s most impressive plays was the missed field goal return, which came from 123 yards for the Montreal Alouettes back in 2014.

Then there was the play that most highlighted his versatility. In September of 2016, Carter played punt teams vs. the Ticats and blocked a punt, returning the fumble all the way for six the other way.

There was a time when CFL players often saw time on both sides of the football, making feats like Carter’s not entirely uncommon. Today, however, players seldom switch sides, let alone play both in the same season.

This stat from CFL statistician Steve Daniel illustrates the rarity of players who can score in so many ways: Of the 10,167 players who have ever suited up in a CFL game, only 43 have used four different methods to score a touchdown. That puts Carter in the 0.004 per cent.

Finally, scoring on offence and defence in the same season is impressive in its own right. That’s only happened four times over the lat 20 years, with Bryon Parker, Joe Hagins and Dexter Dawson also accomplishing the feat.

I honestly think Duron Carter is an idiot, and is only playing because of his dad's fame, not because he has any real skill.

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would.

He had a really good game. It will be interesting to see what he's can do over the course of a full season.

Here's a articles about him.

TORONTO – The Edmonton Eskimos made sure that if the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are going to host a playoff game they will need to win out to do so.

Edmonton’s Saturday night win over Calgary means that the final week of the regular season will decide how the post-season will begin.

Winnipeg can still clinch second in the West with a win next week in Calgary.

Edmonton and Saskatchewan play each other in Week 20 and although Edmonton is two points up, Saskatchewan owns the tie breaker and will finish ahead with a win and a Winnipeg win.

In the East, the Ottawa REDBLACKS have done their part by beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Friday night.  Now, they need to sit back and wait to see what next week has in store for their rivals the Toronto Argonauts.

Sitting just a point up and with a bye in the final week of the season, the REDBLACKS fate is simple: An Argos win in BC next week and Ottawa finishes second; an Argos loss to BC and the REDBLACKS will host their third consecutive Eastern Final on November 19 at TD Place.

Here are the playoff scenarios for Week 20:



West Division Scenarios

Winnipeg Win OR Edmonton Loss = Winnipeg clinches second place in the division and will host the Western Semi-Final on November 12 versus Edmonton or Saskatchewan
Edmonton Win + Winnipeg Loss OR Tie = Edmonton clinches second place in the division and will host the Western Semi-Final against Winnipeg and Saskatchewan will crossover and play in the Eastern Semi-Final November 12 against Toronto or Ottawa
Saskatchewan Win = Saskatchewan clinches third place in the West Division and will play in the Western Semi-Final against Winnipeg on November 12 and Edmonton will crossover and play in the Eastern Semi-Final November 12 against Toronto or Ottawa
 

East Division Scenarios

Toronto win OR tie = Toronto clinches first place in the East and will host the Eastern Final on November 19; Ottawa finishes in second place and will host the Eastern Semi-Final on November 12.
Toronto loss = Ottawa clinches first place in the East and will host the Eastern Final on November 19; Toronto finishes in second place and will host the Eastern Semi-Final on November 12.
 

Crossover Scenarios

Hamilton loss in Week 17 confirmed a West Division team will crossover and take the third playoff berth in the East Division
Who has clinched a playoff berth

Calgary Stampeders*, Toronto Argonauts, Ottawa REDBLACKS, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Edmonton Eskimos, Saskatchewan Roughriders

* – Denotes clinched division

If the playoffs started today (Oct. 28) …

Western Semi-Final: Edmonton at Winnipeg
Western Final: TBD at Calgary

Eastern Semi-Final: Saskatchewan at Toronto
Eastern Final: TBD at Ottawa

Out of the playoffs: Hamilton, Montreal, BC

Everything comes down to the final week.
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would.

TORONTO — It took until the 82nd game of the season but we now know how the Shaw Road to the Grey Cup will begin as the stage is set for pair of semi-final games now locked in.

A Winnipeg win Friday night sets up the Bombers’ first home playoff date since 2011.  Their opponents, the Edmonton Eskimos, earned their way into the contest after a road win in Saskatchewan Saturday night. The Riders will cross over to the East to take on the Ottawa REDBLACKS.

The Toronto Argonauts and Calgary Stampeders, meanwhile, will wait to determine their opponent in the Eastern and Western Finals on Nov. 19.

All games can be seen on TSN and RDS, as the post-season culminates with the 105th Grey Cup Championship presented by Shaw at Ottawa’s TD Place on Nov. 26.

The action starts on Sunday, Nov. 12 at 1:00 p.m. ET when Ottawa hosts Saskatchewan in the Eastern Semi-Final. These two teams split their two games this season, both winning on the road in contests that were decided by one score.

A rare cross-division duel offers intrigue in the nation’s capital, with Ottawa and Saskatchewan entering the post-season as two of the CFL’s three hottest teams. The REDBLACKS, well-rested after their Week 20 bye, go into Sunday on a three-game winning streak, while the Riders have won eight of 12 games to double their 2016 win total at 10-8.

While Trevor Harris put his autumn struggles behind him to get the REDBLACKS in the playoffs, the second-year Ottawa pivot enters uncharted waters, making his first career post-season start. Meanwhile, Kevin Glenn and Canadian Brandon Bridge continue to share quarterback duties in Regina, making a must-watch storyline this week.

Heading west, the Eskimos travel to Winnipeg, which will see its first home playoff game at the newly-built Investors Group Field.

The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Eskimos have bounced between long winning and losing streaks in 2017, but the good news for Jason Maas’ club is the team has won five straight games entering post-season play. The addition of C.J. Gable has injected new life into the Eskimos’ offence, which is averaging more than 30 points per game over the current winning streak.

The Bombers, on the other hand, have backed into the playoffs, needing a win in their season finale to lock up a home playoff game — but they won’t be intimidated. Winnipeg swept the two-game season series with Edmonton, while Matt Nichols has enjoyed a career year and Andrew Harris has set an all-time record for his involvement in the passing game.

There’s a lot to like about both of these matchups, with it all kicking off on Nov. 12 in Ottawa — the same spot the eventual Grey Cup Champion will be crowned.

For wall to wall coverage on the road to the Grey Cup, CFL.ca has you covered with all the latest insight, analysis and breaking news throughout the playoffs.

Playoff time.  :woot:

My opinion is that there are only three litigate contenders for the Grey Cup. Edmonton, Winnipeg & Toronto.
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense.
Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't.
And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would.
