NEW YORK-Nov. 20, 2013- NFL RUSH ZONE: Guardians Unleashed, the third installment of the Emmy Award-nominated series, premieres tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 20, at 8:30 p.m. (ET) on Nicktoons, continuing the journey of Ishmael (Ish) and his hero friends, the Guardians, on their quest to protect the NFL and world from new and familiar villains. The 20-episode series, co-produced by Nickelodeon and the NFL, is based on NFL RUSH ZONE, the NFL's online world for kids.

Season three of NFL RUSH ZONE: Guardians Unleashed continues the action-packed adventures of Guardians Ish, Ash, Troy, Tua, Marty and Ricky, and brings viewers even more excitement when new powers and villains are revealed.

With the help of the Rusherz and real NFL players and coaches, the Guardians will once again be called upon to protect the power of the 32 teams' Megacores, the essence of each team, its fans and its community.

During the season premiere, "The Return of Sudden Death," the Guardians are still reeling from the loss of Ish's powers and look to Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden and San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews for help when an old enemy returns, hungry for revenge. Players and coaches highlighted in future episodes include: Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, Houston Texans defensive end J.J.
