On a spooky Halloween in the NFL, the scariest thing a handful of teams faced were competent backup quarterbacks.

Charles Robinson & Frank Schwab talk about all of the Week 8 results including Rush's fourth quarter heroics, the Saints at a QB crossroads, a difficult Cleveland loss, Calvin Ridley's shocking personal announcement and more.
