Bryan Burnham is no stranger to sensational receptions.

The perennial all-star has made a number of fantastic catches during his six-year career, arguably more than any receiver in the CFL over that span.

But a would-be touchdown catch from the second quarter of Friday night’s game against Saskatchewan was truly outstanding — even by Burnham’s lofty standards. The play was reminiscent of Odell Beckham Jr.’s one-handed touchdown grab from 2015 that went viral.

The 29-year-old was ruled out of bounds, but came within a fraction of an inch of landing inside of the white stripe.

Burnham entered Friday’s game with 90 receptions for 1,329 yards and nine touchdowns on the season.

The Lions currently trail the Roughriders in the third quarter by a score of 12-9.
