Did You Catch The NFL On Nickelodeon Yesterday!?

Nickelodeon aired its first ever NFL game, which ended with the New Orleans Saints beating the Chicago Bears 21-9.  It featured a discussion on players’ bathroom breaks, the trademark Nickelodeon slime, and an UNCENSORED F-BOMB.  Here are the highlights:

1.  The profanity came at the end of the first half, when a hot-mic caught Bears receiver Cordarrelle Patterson disagreeing with a call.  Nickelodeon didn’t catch it in time.  (Here’s UNCENSORED video.)

2.  Former NFL receiver Nate Burleson was the studio analyst . . . and several reports say he stole the show.  At one point, he explained to kids how players take bathroom breaks during a game.  (Here’s video.)

3.  The visuals included a “slimed” first down line . . . “slime canons” after a touchdown . . . SpongeBob was shown in-between the uprights during field goals . . . and there were a bunch of other silly graphics.

4.  The kid who plays “Young Sheldon” also explained some of the penalties . . . there was a “Minecraft”-style halftime report . . . and Saints coach Sean Payton got slimed . . . FOR REAL!
