Stamps' Burris earns CFL weekly award
Calgary quarterback Henry Burris was named the CFL offensive player of the week Tuesday after leading the Stampeders to a dominating 46-21 win over the visiting Montreal Alouettes.
Burris completed 19 of 28 passes with no interceptions for four touchdowns, two of which were on the Stamps’ first two drives of the game. He finished the contest with a season-high 412 passing yards.
Edmonton linebacker Rod Davis earned this week’s defensive honour, tallying a career-high seven tackles and one interception, which he returned for a 22-yard touchdown in the Eskimos’ 37-35 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Davis now has an interception return touchdown in back-to-back games, helping the 4-9 Eskimos to their first two-game winning streak of the season.
Toronto kick returner Chad Owens earns the special teams award after accumulating 300 total return yards, including 167 yards on six kickoffs and 133 yards on six punts in the Argonauts' 27-16 loss to the Roughriders.
Saskatchewan slotback Andy Fantuz captured the top Canadian player of the week honour after racking up six receptions for 114 years and one touchdown to help lead his club to a 27-16 win over the Argos.
His performance was highlighted by a 66-yard touchdown reception, as the Rider surpassed 1,000 yards receiving for the first time in his career in just 13 games.
