New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady may have a game coming up on Sunday night, but he didn’t let that stop him from getting into the Halloween spirit on Thursday night.

Hours later, when he was presumably out trick-or-treating with his children, Brady ran into a skeleton dressed up like longtime Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

Naturally, Brady couldn’t resist having some fun.

Perhaps the best move of the night, however, came from Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman. While Freeman wasn’t in costume himself, he did find a little Freddie Freeman while out trick-or-treating with his family — making for an adorable moment.
