Sunday NFL Countdown is a weekly NFL pregame show that airs on ESPN. Its official name is Sunday NFL Countdown presented by Snickers (it was previously known as Sunday NFL Countdown presented by IBM).
- On October 14, 2007, Kermit the Frog appeared in a segment titled "It's Not Easy Being Green," in which the frog was sent out on the streets of New York City and Philadelphia to get the public's gut reactions to the start of the Jets and Eagles' season. Kermit claimed to be able to relate to the football players in green, and the game in general by knowing "a thing or two about gettin' thrown around by pigskin," and to Chad Pennington about having no arm strength, apparently. Framing the street interviews is a short rendition of Kermit singing "Bein' Green" by a pond at a local park.
- On September 20, 2015, the Muppets (including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Sam Eagle, Statler and Waldorf, The Swedish Chef and Janice) appeared in a series of segments with impressionist/comedian Frank Caliendo. Caliendo played different ESPN and NFL personalities – including Chris Berman, Ron Jaworski, Mel Kiper and Mike Ditka - alongside the Muppet characters.
