On July 15, 2011, the Montreal Alouettes’ Anthony Calvillo threw the 395th (and then 396th) touchdown pass of his career, to Éric Deslauriers, in a 40-17 win over the visiting Toronto Argonauts. (Of course the Als beat the Argos.) With that single throw, Calvillo became the most prolific touchdown thrower in CFL history.
