Canadian Football League players of the week

Quarterback Kerry Joseph was recognized Tuesday for his part in the Ottawa Renegades' upset victory last week over the Montreal Alouettes.

Kerry Joseph was named the CFL's offensive player of the week on Tuesday.
Joseph was named the CFL's offensive player of the week after completing 23-of-36 passes for 302 yards in Ottawa's amazing 39-36 overtime victory over the Alouettes.

Joseph threw a touchdown and rushed 15 times for 62 yards and two more majors, as Ottawa erased a 23-point fourth-quarter deficit to stun Montreal.

Joseph's teammate, kicker Matt Kellett, was named the special-teams player of the week. Playing against his former club, Keller connected on all four field goal attempts, including a 32-yarder on the last play of regulation to force overtime.

He then booted a pair of field goals in the extra frame to lift the Renegades to victory.

Toronto Argonauts linebacker Michael Fletcher won the defensive player honour. Fletcher had five tackles, forced a fumble, recovered another and had an interception to lead the Argos past Calgary 22-16.
