Halloween was a backup quarterback-fright fest for football fans everywhere in Week 8, with Mike White and Cooper Rush getting wins in their respective first career starts for the New York Jets and the Dallas Cowboys.
Yet nobody spooked NFL observers on Sunday more than Trevor Siemian, who came on in relief of Jameis Winston and scored another big win for backup quarterbacks everywhere -- leading the New Orleans Saints to a shocking 36-27 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Unlike White and Rush, Siemian did not start the game for the Saints. However, it was far from the 29-year-old quarterback's first action in the National Football League.
