Another one:

- In this game, both teams had a player with the same name and surname who caught at least 2 passes each.
- The winning team intercepted three passes: one by a defensive lineman, one by a linebacker and one by a defensive back.
- The losing team had two players with 11 catches each.
+ BONUS: It was a NFL Films Game of the Week.

HOF Extravaganza bogus game:

*Both coaches are in the HOF
*Each team had a HOF QB, although only one of them played in this game
*One of the starting QBs would play for the opposing team later in his career
*One of the starting QBs completed passes to three different HOFers, two of which were TDs
*A player who played in the alleged "Greatest Game Ever Played" (58 Bal-NYG) rushed for 75 yards
*A player who played in SB X also played in this game

* Van Brocklin & Shula
* Tarkenton & Unitas
* Gary Cuozzo
* Lenny Moore, Raymond Berry & John Mackey
* Phil King (he was my starting point in trying to figure this out)
* I cannot figure out who in this game played in SB X

Minimal clues since this could be an easy one.

- These teams used to be in the same division, but were not at the time of this game.
- A future HOF player on the winning team threw two TD passes to another future HOF player.
- The losing team had two future league MVPs.

At first I thought Pearson but his first year was 1967.

You guys are on another stratosphere compared to me, but I'll give this a shot (selected this game randomly off of Pro Football Reference):

-This game was played on Halloween
-At a stadium better known for baseball, but which had its fair share of great football
-It was one of only three times that the road team played in said stadium
-Team A's starting quarterback would start for Team B the very next season
-Team B used a backup QB when their starter was knocked out of the game; that backup QB would start for Team A the next season

We have a winner!

Let's try another one:

-This was the road team's first ever visit to the home team
-QB of the winning team threw four touchdowns and three interceptions
-One of his touchdowns was to a Hall of Fame receiver, another two were to a Hall of Fame running back
-Said running back had 100 yards rushing AND receiving that day

New Orleans visited Cleveland for the first time. Bill Nelsen threw 2 TD's to Leroy Kelly and 1 to Paul Warfield. He also completed a 42 yard pass to Tommy McDonald.
