EDMONTON - Its November football in Canada with freezing temperatures and a cold, slippery field — making defence and the running game potentially bigger factors in a teams success. Orlando Brown Jr. Ravens Jersey . That means Sundays CFL West semifinal between the host Edmonton Eskimos and the Saskatchewan Roughriders should be typical hard-nosed playoff football. You can watch the game starting at 4pm et/1pm pt on TSN1, TSN4 and TSN5. Its going to be a smash-mouth game, the way it should be, Eskimos defensive tackle Eddie Steele said after Saturdays final walkthrough. The key for the Eskimos, who finished second in the division at 12-6, will be to avoid a repeat of last week in Regina. The Riders ran for 172 yards in the first half en route to a 24-17 win that gave them the third seed. It comes down to how physical we are, said Eskimos linebacker Rennie Curran. If we dont go out there and put our foot down and impose our will theyre going to keep running the ball. Theyre a team thats hard nosed, thats physical and if we dont handle things up front and stop the run its going to be a long day for us. The Eskimos allowed just 24 rushing yards in the second half in Regina. So we really have to do a good job of taking that element of the game away from them from the get-go and put the game in Kerrys (Joseph) hands, he added. Both teams will be starting backup quarterbacks — Joseph for the Riders and Matt Nichols for the Eskimos. The 41-year-old Joseph won a Grey Cup with the Riders in 2007 but Nichols has limited playoff experience. His lone post-season appearance came in the second half of the Western semifinal in 2012 when he suffered a dislocated ankle. I definitely welcome the challenge, said Nichols, who played three games during the regular season. Im going to do everything I need to do to make sure this team is successful. Players on both teams expressed confidence in their backups to make the plays needed to win, but agree the Riders have an advantage with Josephs experience. Once youve been there and won a championship you know what it takes mentally and physically and you have experience to draw back on, said Riders defensive tackle Derek Walker, adding Joseph has provided teammates with some words of wisdom on how to get there. While Riders starter Darian Durant will not play, Mike Reilly is on the game day roster and could see some action. That would not surprise Saskatchewan defensive end Ricky Foley, who said he doesnt believe Reilly is hurt and feels the Eskimos are just playing games. If I see Matt Nichols take 50 or so snaps then Ill believe it, he said. But it doesnt matter whos back there, my job is hit him in the mouth. Reilly was limited in practice this week and did not speak to reporters Saturday. Both teams have dependable running backs. Saskatchewans Anthony Allen finished second in rushing in the West with 930 yards and Edmontons John White was third with 852 yards. White played only nine games and averaged 95 yards per game compared to 71 per game by Allen. In addition, White, along with league-leading receiver Adarius Bowman, were healthy scratches in Regina. White, who ran for 283 yards in Edmontons two wins over Saskatchewan this season, doesnt expect to be the sole focus on Sunday. Weve got too many playmakers on offence, he said. The ball has to get spread around in order for it to work and thats how we work, everybody gets the ball. We have a lot of explosive players and that makes it tough for the defence. Kenny Young Ravens Jersey . At quarterback, all agree that Andy Dalton has been a wonderful surprise, but to truly progress he has to play his best in the playoffs. The two losses in the wildcard rounds keep the evaluation on Dalton open -- just like it did for Peyton Manning many years ago and Matt Ryan until last year. Mark Andrews Jersey . Paire broke Giraldo twice and lost his serve once in both sets to wrap up the win in 1 hour, 10 minutes. He will next face Pablo Carreno Busta of Spain, who advanced when Jurgen Zopp of Estonia retired with an injury at 5-5 in the first set. . Torres scored the first goal by an English team in the knockout phase of the Champions League this season when he met Cezar Azpilicuetas cutback in the ninth minute of their first leg match in the last 16. But Chelsea failed to make the most of its counterattacks and the Turkish champions equalized in the second half after gaining in confidence and cutting out their defensive mistakes.Dominating pitching continues to be the story for the Detroit Tigers as they aim for a three-game sweep against the Boston Red Sox tonight at Fenway Park. Watch the game live on TSN2 and TSN GO at 8pm et/5pm pt. Winners of five in a row and six of the last seven, the Tigers have surrendered a total of just eight runs during the current win streak, thanks in part to a commanding 6-1 victory on Saturday. While he may not get as much press as Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander, Rick Porcello continued his strong start by picking up his seventh win in eight decisions. Porcello gave up just a single run on six hits and a walk, striking our four over the course of eight innings as he lowered his ERA to 2.91. Thanks to the positive effort, Detroit continues to sport the best winning percentage (.684) in the majors and is 6 1/2 games ahead of Minnesota for first place in the American League Central. "Its May," Porcello said after his performance. "Ive said before, this is a marathon, its not a sprint. ... The most important thing to me right now is that were in first place and were playing good ball. Thats huge. We want to keep that going." From an offensive standpoint, the Tigers picked up support from Miguel Cabrera who finished with three hits and two RBI, while Victor Martinez added a pair of hits and scored once. Over on the other side, Mike Napoli tallied three singles in four trips to the plate for a Boston squad which is fourth in the AL East, 2 1/2 games off the pace set by Baltimore and New York. Xander Bogaerts pitched in with another two hits at the bottom of the order. His solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning accounted for the lone run of the contest for the Sox. John Lackey sufferred his third loss of the season after giving up five earned runs on nine hits and a couple of walks over 5 1/3 innings. Kenny Young Jersey. "Theyre deep all the way through the lineup," Lackey said of the visitors. "Theyre pretty good." Detroit hitters are currently first in the AL in batting at .275, coming in second in slugging (.421), which combines well with the fact that the pitching staff is second in the league with a combined 3.19 ERA. Sundays slate of games culminates with Anibal Sanchez taking the hill for the Tigers and Jake Peavy facing off against the Detroit lineup. Peavy, a right-hander from Alabama, has appeared in eight games in 2014 but has just a 1-1 mark to show for his efforts. Earlier this week the hurler lasted just 4 1/3 innings against Minnesota on the road, giving up six runs on nine hits and a pair of walks as the Sox suffered an 8-6 setback. Sporting a career mark of 4-5 with a 4.83 ERA in 12 all-time appearances against Detroit, Peavy lasted only three innings in his most recent matchup versus the Tigers, allowing seven runs on five hits and three walks. Over on the other side, Sanchez is still searching for his first win of the campaign. The right-hander has been on the shelf for several weeks, last pitching against Minnesota on April 26 when he lasted a mere 2 2/3 innings in what turned into a 5-3 setback on the road. A member of the Miami staff for the bulk of his career, Sanchez has yet to register a decision versus Boston. Detroit, which edged the Red Sox in the season series last year by a 4-3 count, is now ahead this time around at 2-0. Overall, the Tigers are off to their best start since 1984, thanks in part to a 10-game road win streak which is their longest in three decades.
