Only information about the losing team for this one!....

It was their 10th loss of the year.
This was their starting QB's only start in his entire NFL career. (He happened to have a rushing TD in this game)
There were 8 HOFers on the roster.

This could be too easy. ;)

It was actually pretty difficult, but I think I've got it. The 1958 season finale between the Packers and the Rams. Joe Francis was the quarterback in question. This edition of the Pack might be the only 10-loss team ever to have that many HOFers on their roster.

Yep. Possibly difficult because I don't think pre-1960 games are searchable on p-f-r

Each team in this game had two quarterbacks who saw action.

The winning team had two quarterbacks who had previously seen Super Bowl action, one of whom would attempt his last career pass in the game.

The losing team would have a quarterback who would throw the first touchdown of his career, and a quarterback who would later see service with the winning team.

The losing team, in defeat, registered their highest point total of the season.

Each squad had non-offensive TDs of 80+ yards.

I am really stuck on this one. These 2 clues ^^^^^ seem to be the logical starting point. My first thoughts were Neil ODonnell on the Titans with Steve McNair or Chris Chandler on the Rams with Kurt Warner. (but they missed each other by a year) Neither of those work in terms of last career pass. Then I thought of White/Staubach on the 1979 Cowboys. But I don't believe they faced any QBs that year who would later play for Dallas. I'm stuck! :? Not giving up though.
