Entering Monday's contest, Calvillo needed 258 yards to break the record. He ended up with 305 yards, completing 23 of his 39 attempts.
Montreal won the game 29-19, clinching a playoff spot in the process.
The 39-year-old, who has yet to decide if he will return next season, also passed the 4,000 yard mark for the tenth consecutive year.
