The Chicago Bears snuck into the 2020 postseason only to be ousted in the first round by the New Orleans Saints, 21-9. It was a disappointing effort all around, especially on offense.

The wild-card game was being broadcast on CBS and Nickelodeon, which featured a kid-friendly broadcast. And it gave former Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky the perfect sendoff from Chicago.

Despite the loss, Trubisky was voted the NVP — Nickelodeon’s Valuable Player — by those watching the game on Nickelodeon, and it became an instant viral moment with jokes galore.

Trubisky recently appeared on the Pardon My Take podcast, where he hilariously recounted the moment he found out he was named the NVP.

“They just told me and I was like, ‘Oh, cool. Is there like a trophy or something?'” Trubisky explained. “It was tough, because it was emotional, season just ended, we lost the game. It was a rough game, honestly. And they’re like, ‘You won something.’ I thought they were just messing with me. I was like, ‘What? The NVP sounds like MVP. There’s no way. You can’t win a MVP with a game like that.’ ‘No, the NVP… Nickelodeon Valuable Person, I guess.’ And I was like, ‘How do I qualify for that?’ ‘I don’t know, they voted for you.’ ‘Alright, thank you, I guess.'”

Trubisky faced off against his former team last Saturday, where he absolutely balled out, leading the Bills to six consecutive scoring drives — including four touchdowns — in the first half. He finished 20-of-28 for 221 yards, one touchdown and 106.4 passer rating.
