TORONTO - Ottawa kicker Lewis Ward and B.C. quarterback Jonathon Jennings and receiver Bryan Burnham are the CFL top performers for Week 15.

Ward went a perfect seven-for-seven on field goals and added a successful convert kick in the Redblacks' 28-15 win over Edmonton on Saturday.

The kicker from Kingston, Ont., broke the CFL's single-season consecutive field goal streak with 33 in a row. He now has 37 successful field goals in a row, which is just two short of matching Rene Paredes' all-time streak.

Jennings and Burnham were a crucial combination in the Lions' 35-32 come-from-behind overtime victory over Hamilton on Saturday.

In the fourth quarter, Burnham snagged an eight-yard pass from Jennings for a touchdown to bring B.C. into the lead after the successful convert.

Then, with time expiring and the Lions down right points, Jennings tossed a 20-yard ball to Burnham in the endzone for a touchdown. The pair then connected on a two-point conversion attempt to force overtime.
