Canadian Football League Players Of The Week

Quarterback Ricky Ray won the CFL's offensive player of the week while linebacker Singor Mobley earned defensive honours after leading the Edmonton Eskimos to a 27-20 win over the B.C. Lions last week.
Stampeders defensive end Rahim Abdullah was named lineman of the week, while Stamps kicker Sandro DeAngelis earned the special teams award after Calgary's 53-36 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Ray had a solid performance completing 21 of 29 passes for 325 yards, two interceptions and two touchdowns. He also added 48 yards on the ground on eight carries, scoring one rushing TD.
Calgary quarterback Henry Burris and Winnipeg slotback Milt Stegall were finalists for the offensive award.
Mobley anchored the Eskimo defence that held B.C. to 20 points. Mobley registered two tackles and broke-up a pass in the fourth quarter on a crucial second down play.

Lions linebacker Javier Glatt was the runner-up.
Abdullah registered two sacks for nine yards and forced one fumble in Calgary's first road win of the season.
Edmonton's Dan Comiskey and Tim Bakker and the Lions' Rob Murphy were finalists for the lineman award.
DeAngelis earned special teams honours for the second straight week. In the Stamps victory over the `Riders on the weekend, DeAngelis was a perfect six for six in field goals, connecting from 26, 30, 35, 36, 43 and 52 yards in Calgary's victory over the Riders.
Since missing a 45-yard attempt in the first quarter of the Stamps' opening game of the season, DeAngelis has hit 15 consecutive field goals.
