On Saturday, NBC Sports was your home for NFL football. The network broadcasted both the afternoon and evening NFL playoff games – two of the best games we’ve seen all season. But despite the amazing play on the field, it was what was taking place in the broadcast booth that had people talking.

See – behind the broadcasters was the glowing NBC ‘Wild Card Saturday’ graphic. Nothing wrong with that, right? Well – what happens when you sandwich two commentators and bookend the graphic? You get a turd.

No seriously, you do.

With a H/T to Awful Announcing, here we see Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth broadcasting the New Orleans Saints-Philadelphia Eagles game. All looks normal, except for that glowing ‘turd’ wordage behind them.

Michaels and Collinsworth weren’t the only broadcasting duo subjected to the poor placement as earlier during the Kansas City Chiefs-Indianapolis Colts game, Dan Hicks and Mike Mayock had to deal with the same ‘turd’ issue.

Let’s hope next year, NBC gets the Sunday matchups.
