Week 13 of the Canadian Football League is finally complete and there were plenty of exciting games over the past few days.
Below we provide you with the top five performers of the week.
Vernon Adams Jr. stands out as the top player from this past week.
The BC Lions quarterback was extremely efficient, going 21 of 33 passing (63%). He had 306 yards passing and three passing touchdowns with zero interceptions.
This vaulted Adams Jr. to second in passing yards on the season and second in passing touchdowns.
On top of that, the Lions won their game against the Montreal Alouettes by a score of 34-25 and improved their season record to 8-4.
Austin Mack of the Montreal Alouettes was easily the best wide receiver in Week 13. He had seven catches for a total of 143 yards (an average of 20.4 yards per catch) and a touchdown.
Even with this performance, the Alouettes lost to the BC Lions by nine points and Montreal is now 6-5 on the season, with Mack now the leading receiver in the CFL.
Tim White was another player who had a fantastic game in Week 13.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ wide receiver had 110 receiving yards on eight catches (an average of 13.8 yards per catch). He also had one receiving touchdown.
Despite this great game from White, the Tiger-Cats lost to the Toronto Argonauts by a score of 41-28 and are now 4-7 on the season.
Going back to the Alouettes, they also had one of the top rushing performances of the week.
This being William Stanback, who rushed for 102 yards on eight carries (an average of 12.8 yards per carry). He also had one rushing touchdown, but as mentioned previously, the Alouettes still lost the game.
Another one of the best rushing performances in Week 13 came from Brady Oliveira of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He had 17 carries for 88 yards (an average of 5.2 yards per carry).
On top of that, he also had two rushing touchdowns. Unfortunately, it was not enough as the Blue Bombers lost to the Saskatchewan Roughriders by a score of 32-30.
Oliveira remains the top running back in the CFL and has moved into a tie for second place for rushing touchdowns.
