It might be deja vu for the BC Lions and their fans today as the team plays at home against the lowest-ranked team in the league, the Ottawa Redblacks.
The last time that happened, only a couple of weeks ago, the Leos were bullied by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a 30-13 loss.
The pressure is once again on the team to win as they try to stay afloat in the standings with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a fight for home-field advantage in the playoffs.
The Ottawa Redblacks currently sit at 3-9 in the league and are coming off losses to the Ticats and the Edmonton Elks.
Ottawa is currently on a six-game losing streak, but they have managed to stay within reach of a majority of those games.
This season, 11 of the Redblacks' 12 games played have come down to the final three minutes to decide who the winner is.
Vernon Adams Jr. will continue to lead the offence after he finished his last game with 306 yards in the air and three touchdowns, adding on 54 yards rushing.
He will be on the lookout for Alex Hollins and Keon Hatcher who are closing in on 1000-receiving yards this year.

BC’s defence will have to step up as one of their anchors, Bo Lokombo, is out this week with a rib injury.
As part of stepping up, they will have to put a stop to running back Devonte Williams as he managed 146 yards on 17 carries in Ottawa’s last game.
It is the final home stretch for the Lions as they play their last six games of the season and four of those games are at BC Place.
Kick off is at 4 pm today.
