NFL on Nickelodeon: Saints top Bears in Super Wild-Card matchup geared at kid audience

An NFL playoff game on a January Sunday afternoon isn't something new. What is new this year, in addition to the field expanding from 12 to 14 teams, is the league putting together a kid-focused broadcast of the Saints-Bears NFC wild-card game on Nickelodeon. While the standard broadcast of the game was on CBS, ViacomCBS sister network Nickelodeon put together an experience for younger viewers, complete with Nickelodeon personalities in the broadcast booth, explanations for all of the rules as the game goes on, special appearances from SpongeBob SquarePants and the Bikini Bottom gang and, of course, Nick's trademark slime.  

Re live all of the action from the game, and reaction to the special broadcast below.
