The Cleveland Browns aren't the only team in Ohio with a prolific quarterback-wide receiver duo.

Columbus Blue Jackets Josh Anderson and Brandon Dubinsky converted a spectacular football completion where Anderson leaped from a jet ski into a lake to catch a throw from Dubinsky in Sudbury, Ontario.

Fellow Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson was driving the jet ski when Dubinsky delivered a strike from the dock and put his arm up to celebrate when Anderson reeled it in. The slow-mo video definitely makes it NFL Films-worthy.

The completion even caught the eye of the Cleveland Browns.

It also registered with ESPN college football analyst and Blue Jackets fan, Kirk Herbstreit, who also knows something about good quarterback play as a former Ohio State Buckeye.

Atkinson, Anderson and Dubinsky are in Sudbury for a charity hockey game dubbed "NHL vs. Docs," where players will square off against area doctors. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the NEO Kids Foundation, which raises funds to support the health in Northeastern Ontario.
