TORONTO - The Argonauts haven’t been able to navigate choppy waters at home recently.

Since beating the Montreal Alouettes at the Rogers Centre in mid-August, the Argos have won only once in four games in Toronto. Barring a minor miracle, the contest Friday night versus the Als will mark the last time the Argos play at home this year.

“We’re at home and no one should be flat,” linebacker Kevin Eiben said. “We enjoy playing in front of our fans. We have to make sure we are energized.”

Only if the Argos win their final two games and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats lose their final two will the East Division semifinal be in Toronto. Otherwise, the rivals will square off at Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton.

Not including a home game in Moncton, the Argos have averaged 22,210 fans a game this season at the Rogers Centre.

Quarterback Cleo Lemon agreed when he was asked whether the Argos’ 37-22 win against Montreal on Aug. 14 was their biggest of the season.

“Looking back on it, probably so,” Lemon said. “If we can duplicate that and take it a step higher, that would be the goal.”
