Duron Carter returns field goal 122 yards for a touchdown

AP

It has been a most forgettable season for the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes. The club has won just once in seven games, and points have been hard to come by at times.

However, the Alouettes did give us quite the highlight Saturday night against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, as wide receiver Duron Carter returned a missed field goal 122 yards(!) for a touchdown.

On the play, Carter caught the kick, which sailed wide right, about 12 yards into the end zone, which runs 20 yards deep. Amazingly enough, Carter — the son of Hall of Fame wideout Cris Carter — was never touched as he weaved through the Roughriders’ coverage team for the score.

Alas, the touchdown was Montreal’s only one in a 16-11 road loss. For Carter — who may well have an NFL future ahead of him — it was another big play in a two-season Canadian career that has featured a number of highlights.

  1. I played against him in high school. He’s got all the talent in the world and has earned a shot in the NFL through his 2 years in the CFL. Duron was never a troublemaker, all he wanted to do was play football and avoid the whole ‘school’ thing. Pay the man for doing what he’s good at and loves.

  2. How do you deduce that he may have an NFL future ahead of him? He couldn’t make it in the NFL as a receiver already with several shots, and isn’t setting the CFL on fire as a receiver either. If he can stick there as a kick returner, then power to him.

  3. Why not cover some of the teams and players in the CFL that aren’t completely terrible? The Allouettes are 1-6 and there are plenty of better players and receivers in the league than Duron Carter.

  4. That return is not going to win anyone over on the NFL side. For starters the Canadian football field is 65 yards wide compared to the NFL field which is 53.5 yards wide. Carter had more room to turn the corner. And, it should be noted that when you watch Carter’s return it feels like you’re watching highschool ball.

    But the biggest issue is the crazy Canadian endzone configuration. 20 yards of endzone?? with the goal posts still on the goal line?! Whoever thinks this is NOT crazy is by definition Crazy! I have never watched a canadian football game, but now I want to just so I can see a QB throw a touchdown pass through the uprights to his wide receiver 20 yards deep in the endzone for a catch in the corner.

    Silly Canadians.

    Signed,

    Cris Carter….er….guy who played against him in high school.

  6. superstars leave the CFL, get to NFL Camp, and can’t even seen the field. the talent level difference is crazy. ask Weston Dressler. the CFL can have him back

    Or you could ask Cameron Wake, Jerrell Freeman, Jon Ryan, Tom Johnson, etc etc.

    Warren Moon is probably the most famous example.

  8. Come on PFT. How about covering the following:

    1. The Edmonton Eskimos, 4-14 last year, 6-1 so far in 2014
    2. The Calgary Stampeders, 6-1 without the best RB in football, Jon Cornish, out with a concussion.
    3. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 5-3 after being 3-15 last year.
    4. The Saskatchewan Roughriders, on a 4-game winning streak.
    5. The Toronto Argonauts, as Ricky Ray approaches 50,000 career yards with his top two WRs on the sidelines.
