With just two weeks left...

...in the Canadian Football League regular season, we still don't know which teams will win the divisional championships. Will we by next weekend?

Below are this week's power rankings (with last week's ranking in parentheses).

  1. Edmonton (3), 10-6. Three wins in a row set up a titanic match-up for first place in the West. Week 18 at British Columbia.
  2. Winnipeg (4), 10-6. Yes, the offense rallied, but the Blue Bombers beat the Alouettes because of their defense. The Eastern Division title is now a nail biter. Week 18 vs Toronto.
  3. British Columbia (1), 9-7. After eight straight wins, the Lions were due to have a bad game. They'd better not have another one this weekend.Week 18 vs Edmonton.
  4. Montreal (2), 10-6. The Alouettes had the Blue Bombers on the ropes but couldn't finish the job. The killer instinct hasn't been shown in 2011. Week 18 vs Calgary.
  5. Calgary (5), 9-7. If the Drew Tate era has begun, then what does that say about Henry Burris' future with this team? Week 18 at Montreal.
  6. Hamilton (6), 8-8. The TiCats finish with road games against the league's two doormats. Talk about getting free tune-ups before the post-season! Week 18 at Saskatchewan.
  7. Toronto (7), 4-12. At least the Argos showed some life in the fourth quarter. That counts for something, right? Week 18 at Winnipeg.
  8. Saskatchewan (8), 4-12. Two more meaningless weeks to go. Week 18 vs Hamilton.
