SALT LAKE CITY – Nickelodeon set off its slime cannons after a touchdown during a broadcast of the NFC Wild Card game between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys hosted the Niners at AT&T Stadium on January 16.

With 10:54 left in the opening quarter, 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell ran the ball into the end zone for a four-yard score.

Mitchell’s touchdown triggered Nickelodeon’s augmented reality slime cannons.

The score gave San Francisco a 7-0 lead over Dallas.

With 5:24 remaining in the second quarter, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott hit wide receiver Amari Cooper for 20 yards and six points.

The Prescott-Cooper connected set off the slime cannons once again and cut Dallas’ deficit to 13-7.

The end zone slime cannons were only a portion of Nickelodeon’s AR offerings for the postseason contest. The Niners/Cowboys game was the first NFL broadcast by Nickelodeon this season.

Last season, the kids’ television network drew high praise for its telecast featuring slime cannons.

The Wild Card game between the 49ers and Cowboys is televised on CBS, Paramount+, Prime Video, and Nickelodeon.
