Canadian Football League players of the week

Saskatchewan quarterback Nealon Greene and Montreal kick returner Ezra Landry were among those selected as this week's top players in the CFL.

Greene earned the offensive award with two touchdown passes in the Roughriders 27-26 loss to Toronto. He completed 31-of-39 passes for 275 yards, while rushing 11 times for 37 yards in the setback. Landry was named special teams player of the week after his sensational performance in a 32-29 win over Edmonton. He scored two touchdowns, including an amazing 125-yard missed field goal that was returned for a touchdown. He finished with 317 total return yards. The defensive player of the week was Landry's teammate, free safety Richard Karikari, who had two interceptions in the dramatic win over the Eskimos. Top lineman honors went to Ottawa's Anthony Collier, who recorded five sacks in the Roughriders 37-29 loss to B.C.
