Notably, the 1993 Roughriders became the first team to lose to an American-based CFL team following their week 4 loss to the expansion Sacramento Gold Miners. The team had played the Gold Miners on the road with just three days of rest and would win 10 of their next 14 games following that loss. The Roughriders qualified for the playoffs, but lost the West Semi-Final game to the Edmonton Eskimos.
