HAMILTON, Ont.--Henry Burris threw five touchdown passes Friday as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated the Montreal Alouettes 41-28.
Andy Fantuz and Dave Stala each had two TD catches for the Tiger-Cats, while Chris Williams had the other.
Friday marked the fifth time Burris, who finished 28-of-32 passing for 326 yards and one interception, has thrown five touchdowns in a game.
With the win, the Ticats improved to 5-8, while the East Division-leading Alouettes dropped to 8-5.
Burris' first touchdown pass of the game, a five-yarder to Fantuz that capped a 74-yard drive on Hamilton's first possession, gave him 285 career TD passes and moved him past Tracy Ham for fifth all-time.
Adrian McPherson, Jamel Richardson, Chris Jennings and S. J. Green each scored for Montreal.
