On Thursday night, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Montreal Alouettes played one of the most entertaining games of the CFL season so far. When it was all said and done, the Blue Bombers came out on top in overtime to defeat the Als, 34-31.

An even bigger story than the game on Thursday night was Als’ receiver Nik Lewis. Lewis needed nine receptions going into the game to pass CFL legend Geroy Simon for the all-time CFL receptions record, and that is the exact number Lewis got.

The football world celebrated Lewis for the incredible milestone:
