NFL Planning To Go Trick And Treating For Halloween In The U.S. And U.K.

October 29, 2010: All eyes may be on Brett Favre's 291 regular game starting streak as the Minnesota Vikings visit the New England Patriots, but that game (which also is the return of Randy Moss after his rrecent trade to Minnesota) not even among the top five on the NFL Ticket Exchange "Buzz Index" among this weekend's games, according to the NFL Ticket Exchange by Ticketmaster.

The NFL will be trick and treating on both sides of the Atlantic, with numerous high-octane games across the nation on Halloween day and night, and an international game in London. At No. 1: The Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New Orleans Saints, pitting the two most recent Super Bowl champs in a high-profile, prime time battle on NBC on Halloween night. The 5-1 Steelers will be seeking to hand the Saints their second consecutive home loss, following last Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns.

No. 2 on the list is the Green Bay Packers visiting the New York Jets, with the home team looking to improve on its 5-1 record. No. 3 is the match up between the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts, Monday night on ESPN.

The Top Five rounds out with the Tennessee Titans at the San Diego Chargers and the Jacksonville Jaguars at the disappointing 1-5 Dallas Cowboys.

Aside from Favre, also not on the list is the Halloween Day International Series game in London between the Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers (as the home team), entering the game with a combined 3-11 mark. Fans in London, however, already are partying in the U.K., with an NFL Rally at Trafalgar Square moving the festivities into high gear on Oct. 30. The event  is scheduled to include a concert, appearances from NFL legends including John Elway, Jerry Rice and Roger Craig, as well as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Members of England's 2012 Olympic team as part of the build up to Summer Games in London less than two years away.

On Oct. 31, a tailgate party prior to the game at Wembley Stadium will feature a number of the NFL's marketing partners, including Canon, Reebok and Visa. Pepsi Max is again title sponsor for the International Series. The game will be shown on CBS (1 PM ET).
