It hasn't been a good start to the CFL season for the Montreal Alouettes and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, but at least one of those teams should be able to turn that around in Friday night's game (7 p.m. Eastern, TSN/ESPN3). The Alouettes and Bombers suffered 38-10 and 33-16 beatdowns by the Calgary Stampeders and B.C. Lions respectively in their season-opening games, part of the East Division's overall 0-4 first-week performance, but they can't both lose Friday. The two points up for grabs certainly matter, but it's how these teams perform that will say a fair bit about whether their Week One losses were anomalies or the first of many to follow this season, and the offensive lines are particular areas to watch. Both teams have a lot of improvement to do if they want to have successful years overall, and Friday's game could be an excellent place to start turning things around, especially up front.
