The Cleveland Browns pulled out an amazing win over the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night of Wild Card Weekend. Quarterback Baker Mayfield looked solid throwing for 263 yards and three touchdowns, while Kareem Hunt added two more touchdowns for Cleveland. And the Browns' defense did their part by forcing five turnovers. After an 11-0 start to the season, the Steelers lost four of their last five games, and then to add insult to injury, lost to the Browns who haven't won a playoff game since 1994. The Brown will now face last year's Super Bowl Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, in the Divisional Round. Browns 48, Steelers 37

In other Divisional round matchups:

The Buffalo Bills vs. the Baltimore Ravens

The Green Bay Packers vs. the LA Rams

The New Orleans Saints vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Nickelodeon broadcast a kid-centric, really fun (and a bit goofy) showing of the New Orleans Saints-Chicago Bears wild-card game over the weekend. The broadcast featured Nickelodeon personalities including appearances from SpongeBob SquarePants and lots of their trademark slime.

Tune in tonight at 8:00 pm ET for the College Football Playoff National Championship between #1 ranked Alabama and #3 ranked Ohio State.
