It’s time to get your game on as Nickelodeon and CBS Sports are teaming up yet again for an incredibly fun and slime-filled presentation of the National Football League’s Super Wild Card Weekend game airing on Sunday, Jan. 16 at 4:30 p.m. ET. Nickelodeon and CBS Sports will be bringing back some familiar faces to the field for the NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon as the magnificent announce team was just recently revealed.
CBS Sports’ analyst and former NFL player, Nate Burleson will be back in the booth calling the game alongside play-by-play announcer Noah Eagle and Nickelodeon’s That Girl Lay Lay star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green. It will be so great to see this outstanding trio together again bringing a whole lot of football fun to our screens after watching their phenomenal work at last year’s Sports Emmy Award-winning telecast of the NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon. This year, prepare for even more swag as none other than Young Dylan will be serving as a sideline reporter. Young Dylan has been showing his enthusiasm for the football world by co-hosting the weekly NFL Slimetime show with Burleson, and now we get to see him bring more of his charm and charisma to the big game. We wonder if we’ll get to hear some of Young Dylan’s unmatched raps and rhymes during his coverage of the NFL Wild Card Game.
The NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon is a perfect way for kids and their families to have a wonderful, adrenaline-filled, co-viewing experience getting to cheer on their favorite team and watch the game like never before. The exciting telecast “will showcase one-of-a-kind kid-focused content and Nick-themed elements throughout, including a special halftime presentation, guest reporters, original on-field graphics, virtual filters, and more for kids and families” (source: press release).
“The collaboration between the NFL, Nickelodeon, and CBS Sports for our first NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon was terrific and exceeded all expectations,” said CBS Sports’ Shawn Robbins, who will serve as Coordinating Producer of the NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon. “We look forward to another exciting, slime-filled, Nick-ified presentation and the return of our talented team in the booth. Last season, Noah, Nate and Gabrielle connected so well with viewers with their chemistry, enthusiasm and knowledge, and we know our NFL Slimetime co-host Young Dylan will be an excellent addition as sideline reporter, completing this fun-filled crew” (source: press release).
Last year’s NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon truly was a touchdown and we can’t wait for all of the high-energy excitement that is in store at this year’s game.
