Halloween falling on a Sunday this year gave NFL players the chance to get creative ahead of their games.

Perhaps the winner of the day was Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett.

After he previously set up a graveyard with headstones of quarterbacks he sacked as decoration, he upped the bit by including the names in his costume.

Garrett showed up to Cleveland’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers dressed as the grim reaper. On the back of his cape were the names of each quarterback he sacked.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was on that list after he showed up in the graveyard. Garrett sacked Murray in Week 6 this season.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen went to his game against the Miami Dolphins dressed as golfing legend and former Arizona State star Phil Mickelson.

Jets defensive end Shaq Lawson wore a Chucky mask from the Child’s Play movies.

He then killed the Cincinnati Bengals’ lead with a fourth-quarter interception which led to a Jets go-ahead touchdown.

New York won the game 34-31.

Perhaps the most realistic costume was worn by a player who did not suit up Sunday.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who defeated the Cardinals Thursday, dressed up as John Wick.

With Rodgers’ hair, beard and outfit, he looked like he could have been Keanu Reeves’ stunt double.

Tight end Marcedes Lewis looked the part as Bane from The Dark Knight Rises, too.

The Minnesota Vikings arrived to Sunday Night Football feeling the spirit as well.
