On Christmas Day, Nickelodeon is delivering a slime-filled presentation of the game between the Broncos and Rams, which will air at the same time as CBS Sports’ coverage. Nate Burleson (who we love), Noah Eagle, and Nick star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green (That Girl Lay Lay) are going to call the game with Young Dylan as a sideline reporter and the voice of Patrick Star also joining from Bikini Bottom to offer live commentary. There is also a little gem tucked in there as halftime will feature an exclusive preview of Nickelodeon’s newest animated preschool series, Rubble & Crew.
Rubble & Crew is a brand-new animated PAW Patrol spinoff centered around the character of Rubble, that we believe will be premiering Friday, Feb. 3rd. Rubble & Crew will follow Rubble and his family as they use their construction vehicles to build and repair things in Builder Cove as well as go on fun adventures with his friends that include Chase, Marshall, Skye, Rocky, Zuma, Everest, Tracker, Rex, Liberty, Al.
It is a little bit of a shame though as the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams have not lived up to expectations this year, but maybe having a little Nickelodeon and slime will make the Nickelodeon NFL Nickmas Game a lot of fun. Also, it always felt like Christmas Day was more for basketball but we will see how it does. Now that is an interesting idea, NBA Nickmas game…

CBS Sports and Nickelodeon will deliver a holiday gift for NFL fans of all ages–a special slime-filled presentation of the National Football League’s Christmas Day game between the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 25, at 4:30 p.m. (ET). Following the success of the Sports Emmy Award-winning NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon production, the Nickelodeon NFL Nickmas Game will air alongside CBS Sports’ coverage of the game, which will be broadcast on the CBS Television Network and stream live on Paramount+.
CBS Sports’ Nate Burleson, Noah Eagle, and Nick star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green (That Girl Lay Lay) are returning to call this year’s collaboration, along with Nick star Young Dylan (Dylan Gilmer, Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan) as sideline reporter. SpongeBob SquarePants’ Patrick Star (voiced by Bill Fagerbakke) will join the crew from Bikini Bottom to offer live commentary throughout the game.
The Nickelodeon NFL Nickmas Game will feature: a special halftime presentation that includes an exclusive look at Nick’s newest animated preschool series, Rubble & Crew (produced by Spin Master Entertainment), premiering Friday, Feb. 3; brand-new holiday-themed augmented reality; fan-favorite characters on the field; cannons shooting snow, presents and slime; a virtual Nick blimp flying throughout the stadium; and tons of special guests. The production will continue to showcase one-of-a-kind family-friendly content and Nick-themed elements throughout, including guest reporters, original on-field graphics, virtual filters, and more for kids and families.
In previous years, CBS Sports and Nickelodeon presented the family-friendly telecast during NFL Super Wild Card weekend, earning two Sports Emmy Awards for the broadcast in the categories of Outstanding Playoff Coverage and Outstanding Live Graphic Design.
In addition to the CBS Television Network, CBS Sports’ telecast will also be available to stream live across digital devices via Paramount+, the CBS Sports app, NFL digital properties, and on mobile with NFL+, while the slime-filled telecast tailored for family-viewing fun will air exclusively on Nickelodeon and via NFL+.
