The native of Katy, Texas connected with Marquay McDaniel, Jon Cornish and Eric Rogers twice to tie his career-high of four touchdown passes which was set earlier this season in Week 3 and matched again in Week 12.

The product of Eastern Washington also rushed for a two-yard scamper in the second quarter, giving him four rushing majors on the year.

Mitchell finished the 2014 regular season with 3,389 passing yards and passed for the second most touchdowns this season with 22.

Playing in his third season in the CFL, this is Mitchell's second career Player of the Week award. His first came during the 2013 season in Week 5.

Simpson, a former Alabama Crimson Tide, wrapped up Eskimos' pivot Mike Reilly on the final play of the third quarter, resulting in a loss of eight yards.

The seven-year veteran finished second on the Stampeders with 74 tackles this season and added four sacks.

This is the native of Decatur, Alabama's second Player of the Week honour of his career with his first coming in Week 19 of the 2011 campaign.

In the first half, the product of Kansas State returned a Sean Whyte punt 93 yards to give the Ticats a 20-14 lead heading into halftime. Banks repeated the feat in the second half with an 88-yard return touchdown to help send Hamilton through to the Grey Cup.

The Garner, North Carolina native led the league with 618 punt return yards. He finished the year second overall with 1,342 combined return yards.
