Ricky Ray threw three touchdowns and tied a club record for consecutive completions Sunday as the red-hot Toronto Argonauts continued to roll with a 36-33 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos.
Ray finished the night 30-of-35 for 413 yards, including TD passes to Jason Barnes, John Chiles and Chad Owens against his former team as Toronto (5-2) won its fourth straight.

Ray's 17 straight completions in the first half tied an Argonauts' club record originally set by Mike Rae in 1975 during a game against the Montreal Alouettes.

Backup quarterback Zach Collaros also threw a TD for Toronto, which is on its longest winning streak since 2007 and leads the CFL East Division by six points over the second place Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly was 35-of-46 for 511 yards and three touchdowns as the Eskimos (1-6) lost their fifth consecutive game.

Grant Shaw added four field goals for Edmonton, which was without injured star linebacker and reigning CFL defensive player.
