For the second time this season, Montreal Alouettes’ quarterback Anthony Calvillo has set a CFL record in a game against the Toronto Argonauts, and for the second time this season has passed Damon Allen in the record books.
On Thursday night at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Calvillo broke Allen’s record with most completions in a Canadian Football League career.
By throwing an 18 yard pass to Brandon London, Calvillo threw his record 5,159th career pass.
In week three, Calvillo broke Allen’s record of 394 career touchdown passes when he connected with Eric Deslauriers in a 40-17 Montreal win on July 15th from McGill Stadium.
There’s a very good chance that Calvillo could break Allen’s CFL record for most passing yards this season as well. Heading into tonight’s game, he had 69, 646 yards. Allen’s record is 72, 381 yards.
Currently the Montreal Alouettes lead the Toronto Argonauts 20-13. Calvillo has a 16 yard touch down pass to S.J. Green.
If the Alouettes win, they’ll move ahead of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats into sole possession of second place in the CFL Eastern Division.
