The Winnipeg Blue Bombers may be thankful the end of their dismal season is in sight.

With a 2 and 12 record, Montreal can officially eliminate Winnipeg from playoff contention Monday afternoon with a win over the Bombers at Percival Molson Stadium. 

Coach Tim Burke has the unenviable task of trying to motivate his team to play for pride.

Winnipeg is coming off a 38-11 loss to the Calgary Stampeders last weekend.

Quarterback Max Hall will get the start. The game starts at noon. 

While the Bombers wallow in the CFL basement, a key East Division matchup in Hamilton highlights the C-F-L's Thanksgiving Day schedule. 

The Tiger-Cats will try to win their second straight game against rival Toronto, while closing within two points of the Argonauts for top spot in the East.

Toronto will have Ricky Ray back at quarterback and can clinch a home playoff berth with a win.
