BC Lions Stats
Considering how poorly BC's offense has played so far this season, they'll be happy just to be in the playoff hunt. They are third from last in scoring and they have the second-worst rushing attack in the league. Their defense has been fantastic, though. They are third in the league in points allowed with just 296 and they lead the league with 35 sacks and 16 interceptions. The one area where their defense has struggled has been in forcing fumbles, where they rank last with just three.
BC quarterback Jonathon Jennings has completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 1,081 yards and seven touchdowns this season and it looks like he will be the team's starting QB going forward. Wide receiver Bryan Burnham is having another solid season, catching 51 passes for 720 yards and seven touchdowns. Running back Chris Rainey has just 167 yards on the ground this year, but he has been one of the top punt returners by averaging 11.6 yards per return and taking one back for a touchdown.
Arguably the Lions' best defensive contributor has been veteran defensive end Odell Willis, who has 18 tackles and is second in the CFL with nine sacks. Defensive back Anthony Orange is having the best season of his career as he now has 36 total tackles and is tied for the team lead with four interceptions. The team's leading tackler is linebacker Bo Lokombo with 57 and he also has two sacks and two interceptions.
