Sean Payton gets slimed, makes good on Wild Card promise

Saints head coach Sean Payton promised kids everywhere he’d take a bit of a plunge on national TV if his team emerged victorious in the Wild Card round, and he made good on it.

The Saints took the Bears to the woodshed, winning 21-9, in a game that was not as close as the box score suggested. Saints quarterback Drew Brees was an inch short of scoring a touchdown late in the Wild Card matchup, and Bears tight end Jimmy Graham caught a meaningless touchdown on the final play to make it look close — but it wasn’t.

And while Payton took time to celebrate the big win with his players, he also made good on his promise to Nickelodeon viewers — sliming himself for the world to see.
