The Calgary Stampeders claimed all three spots on the Canadian Football League’s players-of-the-week list for Week 11 as quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, receiver Kamar Jorden and defensive lineman Ja’Gared Davis were all honoured for their play in the Red and White’s 39-26 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

It’s the second time this season Mitchell and Jorden have received a player-of-the-week honour while it’s the first recognition in 2018 for Davis.

Mitchell threw for a career-best 452 yards against Winnipeg and had three touchdown passes with no interceptions. It was the highest passing-yardage total for a Stamp since the 2009 season. Mitchell also had a critical 10-yard run in the second quarter that allowed Calgary to convert on a second-and-long situation and led to a Stamps touchdown.

For the season, Mitchell has completed 181 passes for 2,614 yards with 20 touchdowns and a league-leading 110.8 QB rating.

On the receiving end of 249 of Mitchell’s 452 yards on Saturday was Jorden, who broke Herm Harrison’s 50-year-old franchise record for most receiving yards in a game. Jorden had a total of 10 catches on the day including a touchdown.

The big game increased Jorden’s season totals to 52 catches for 895 yards and six touchdowns. He leads the CFL with an average of 99.4 receiving yards per game.

On the other side of the ball, Davis earned a player-of-the-week nod after becoming just the second defensive lineman in league history to record two interceptions in a game. He returned the second pick 35 yards for a fourth-quarter touchdown that sealed the victory for Calgary. Davis also had three tackles in the game.

For the season, Davis has 39 tackles, three sacks, two fumble recoveries, two interceptions, two knockdowns and one forced fumble.

Stampeders players have been honoured a total of six times so far in 2018 by the CFL’s weekly awards program:

Week 2: Bo Levi Mitchell
Week 5: Micah Johnson
Week 8: Kamar Jorden
Week 11: Bo Levi Mitchell, Kamar Jorden, Ja’Gared Davis
