Montreal Alouettes defensive back Jerald Brown was named defensive player of the week. He had three tackles and two interceptions in Montreal's 47-24 road win over Edmonton.

The special teams player of the week honour went to Winnipeg kick returner Will Ford.

He returned four kicks for 148 yards in the loss to Calgary, including a 100-yard touchdown return in the third quarter.
