While the Chicago Bears didn’t get the result that they wanted in Sunday’s wild-card game against the New Orleans Saints, they certainly did draw a crowd.

Sunday’s game between the Bears and Saints was the most-watched game of wild-card weekend, according to CBS Sports. It drew 30.653 million viewers between CBS and Nickelodeon.

Not only that, it was the most-watched Sunday wild-card game on the network in seven years.

The Bears-Saints game was simulcast on Nickelodeon for the first time, which drew rave reviews. It was kid-friendly and teams got slimed when they scored a touchdown — which for the Bears didn’t happen until the final second of the game.

Bears quarterback Mitchel Trubisky was named NVP — Nickelodeon Valuable Player, as voted upon by those watching on the network.
