The Saskatchewan Roughriders hope a little time on the road against the Edmonton Eskimos Saturday will get them back to their winning ways.
After a couple of tough losses at home, it'll be important for the team to get back to clicking like they were earlier in the season.
The Riders take on the Eskimos in two of the next three weeks, with Edmonton coming to Mosaic Stadium to wrap up the regular season Nov. 6 and there's a good chance the two could meet in the West semi-final.
So how much do you show the opposing team when it comes to the offensive scheme? Quarterback Darian Durant says you can't think about that.
"We try to go out and win," said Durant. "We're not going to change what we do. We're going to try and beat you at our game and that's the approach we're taking. We're not holding anything back at all."
Receiver Andy Fantuz says there's never any holding back.
"The CFL game allows for a lot of creativity," said Fantuz. "You can always make tweaks to plays come playoff time. I don't think we're necessarily going to hold anything back. We're just going to try and execute whatever we do run at the best of our ability."
Defensive end Brent Hawkins won't suit up. He's been battling a shoulder problem for half the season, so this looks like a move to rest him. Of course, receiver Rob Bagg and kicker Luca Congi are also out with their season-ending injuries.
Full back Chris Szarka is back in the line up after missing last game against Calgary. Receiver Cary Koch, defensive tackle Montez Murphy, and defensive back Sean Lucas are also on the roster.
Kick off against the Eskimos is at 5 p.m. You can catch the game on TSN.
