Joe Burrow Receives Slime Treatment For Winning NVP Of The Week Award
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is certainly unaware of the âsophomore crisisâ that many NFL players go through. After his rookie season was cut short in 2020 with a ripped ACL, Joe Burrow and the Bengals have become one of the toughest teams to play in the AFC North. If further proof is needed, just ask the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, who have been swept away by the Cincinnati Bengals this season in conference.
Last week, the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens, who were without quarterback Lamar Jackson, 41-21.
Joe Burrow threw for an impressive 525 passing yards and four touchdowns, leading the Bengals to exclusive possession of the AFC North Division with a 9-6 record.
Joe Burrow’s courageous performance on Sunday caught the attention of Nickelodeon, which awards weekly “NVP” awards for the best NFL performance of the week. The NVP award winner is then presented with the trophy and an appropriate âslimmingâ.

Cincinnati Bengals tight end CJ Uzomah approached quarterback Joe Burrow, alongside Nickelodeon royalty: Spongebob Squarepants. As seen in the video above, SpongeBob SquarePants had the NVP award in the net and handed it over to Burrow, who said he was waiting to receive it.
But, unlike most people who get slimmed down or soaked, Burrow asked for the bright green soak. Uzomah didn’t hold back and ran back with a cup of Nickelodoen’s famous bright green slime and poured it over Joe Burrow’s head. Burrow appeared to enjoy the sliming and the iconic Nickelodeon airship trophy, which he said he had been trying to win for some time.
Joe Burrow was nominated for the Nickelodeon NVP Award, alongside Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams. Allen and the Bills defeated the New England Patriots, now tied for the lead with the AFC East. Adams and the Packers defeated the Browns on Christmas Day. Adams had 10 catches for 114 yards and two touchdowns.
The Burrows’ 525 passing yards and four touchdowns were a franchise record for the Cincinnati Bengals. This season, Burrow has thrown for 4,165 passing yards and 30 touchdowns, with just 14 interceptions. Joe Burrow could be a good candidate for the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award.
