The Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints and slime? Woah, this playoff picture just got weirder.

On Sunday, CBS Sports and Nickelodeon will team up to present a wild card game like no other. The game will air on Nickelodeon and feature a ‘slime-filled telecast’ tailored for family-fun.

Kick off is set for 4:30 p.m. and the game will feature one of a kind “Nick-themed elements” and graphics.

The event will feature a star-studded cast and will include a special halftime sneak peek of “Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years” a series set to debut in 2021.

The series follows a 10-year-old SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends as they spend their summer building underwater campfires, catching wild jellyfish and swimming in Lake Yuckymuck at the craziest camp in the kelp forest, Kamp Koral.

Chairman of CBS Sports, Sean McManus, said the partnership is a chance to reflect the potential of the company.

“This is a first of its kind presentation for the NFL together with Nickelodeon, and we are very excited to create a unique telecast that will maximize the co-viewing appeal for kids and families, while maintaining the integrity of the game and its traditions,” McManus said. “Partnering with Nickelodeon to showcase the NFL Playoffs is a great opportunity to highlight the power, depth and reach of ViacomCBS, as we continue to unlock the true potential of our merged company with the first of many opportunities between CBS Sports and our ViacomCBS family.”

The wild card game on Nickelodeon will only be available on mobile for free for fans via the NFL App.

“The game airing on CBS will be streamed on CBS and NFL digital properties across devices, and on mobile via the participating teams’ mobile properties, and Yahoo Sports and other Verizon Media mobile properties,” the company said in a statement.

Additionally, participants will be able to enter a sweepstakes for the chance to win an exclusive game ball signed by a Wild Card player, along with other exclusive prize packs.
