Canadian defensive playmakers shined in Week 17.
There was a trio of outstanding showings from defenders that really stood out.
1. Antoine Pruneau, defensive back, Ottawa Redblacks
The University of Montreal product picked off Kevin Glenn and took it back 46 yards to the end zone for his first career touchdown. Pruneau’s living up to the extension signed last off-season.
2. Adam Konar, linebacker, Edmonton Eskimos
25 tackles over the last three games, high level or production from the talented national. Eight tackles against Toronto earns him a spot on the list.
Muamba has been playing well for a long stretch of the season. Two straight games with an interception show his ability in pass coverage too.
