They're not brothers, but they play like they are.

B.C. Lions' quarterback Jarious Jackson and his favourite target slotback Paris Jackson were honoured with Canadian Football League player of the week awards Tuesday.

Jackson was dubbed Gibson's Finest offensive player for his four-touchdown performance in relief of the injured Buck Pierce last Thursday in Edmonton.

Paris Jackson was Canadian of the week. He caught nine passes for 126 yards and a TD in the 40-22 win over the Eskimos.

Lions' punt returner Tyler Ebell and kicker Sean Whyte were runners-up for special teams player of the week. That award went to Hamilton Tiger-Cats' kicker Nick Setta.

Calgary Stampeders' linebacker Dwayne Carpenter, the defensive player of the week, had two recovered fumbles and a touchdown in the Grey Cup champs' 44-9 win over the Toronto Argonauts.

B.C. hosts the Stamps on Friday at B.C. Place Stadium.

Meanwhile, Paris Jackson was fined an undisclosed amount by the CFL for excessive celebrating in the game against the Esks. After scoring a TD, Jackson removed his shoes and danced like his feet were on fire, which goes against CFL policy of not removing equipment or using foreign objects during celebrations which would result in delaying the game.
