We were joined on the Popternative show by Micah Abbey and Dylan Schefter who will be a part of this year’s Nickelodeon NFL Nickmas Game game between the Las Vegas Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs. The match airs on Christmas Day, Monday, December 25th, 2023 at 1:00 p.m (ET).

Live from Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., the Nickelodeon NFL Nickmas Game will feature a special halftime presentation that includes an exclusive look at Nick’s newest animated series, Rock Paper Scissors, upgraded cannons that fire slime, snowballs, pizzas and presents, live AR festive decorations within the stadium, an updated virtual Nickelodeon blimp flying throughout the stadium. and appearances in the game from animated Santa, Yeti, and Snowball characters.

This year, NFL Slimetime interview correspondent Dylan Schefter will be live on the field as the sideline reporter, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’s Donatello, voiced by Micah Abbey, will be seen popping up to explain penalties throughout the game.

When discussing the atmosphere of the game, Dylan says, “I think especially for kids, they’re very energetic and lively often times, so I think it’s just a perfect speed for them and it’s going to be so crazy with all the effects […] I wish I had it as a kid.”

Micah explains his role for the big game: “You will see me, but I’ll be in my Ninja Turtle form, but you’ll also see my [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem] co-star Brady Noon which is one of my best friends, and I’ll be explaining the rules for people who don’t know, and I’ll just be helping guiding new people throughout the game and Brady will be commentating.”

Watch the full conversation with Micah Abbey and Dylan Schefter below.
