Anthony Calvillo CFL Record: His 395th Career Touchdown Pass Eclipses Damon Allen Total

THE CANADIAN PRESS -- MONTREAL - Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo has made history with his 395th career touchdown pass.

The 18-year CFL veteran broke the record of 394 set by Damon Allen over 23 seasons from 1985 to 2007.

Calvillo completed his record eight-yard pass to Eric Deslauriers against the Toronto Argonauts in the first quarter.

He had to wait through an Argos' review to see if Deslauriers' feet had touched the ground inside the endzone.

The initial touchdown call stood and Calvillo celebrated on the field.

Calvillo is expected to pass Allen's records for career pass completions and passing yards later this season.
