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.
