Season 3 of NFL Rush Zone will feature protagonist Ishmael and his hero friends, the Guardians, as they develop enhanced powers meant to protect the NFL and the world from villains both old and new. The Guardians are aided by NFL coaches and players who voice their animated personas, including San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, Chicago Bears running back Matt Forté, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
New episodes of the series will air on Nicktoons starting on Sunday, July 14, at 11:00a.m. (ET) and will re-air on NFL Network Saturday, July 20 at 8:00a.m. (ET). NFL Rush Zone will be made available on Nicktoons.com and NFLRUSH.com after each episode’s on-air premiere. The full length episodes will also be available on the Nick App, the day after it premieres.
