South Park put together a send-up of the NFL's troubles last night, and it even pulled a last-minute switch for accuracy's sake, replacing injured Washington Redskins starter Robert Griffin III with backup Kirk Cousins.

The episode touched on the Redskins name controversy as well as commissioner Roger Goodell's fall from grace after mishandling the Ray Rice investigation, portraying him as a broken robot, and using actual audio from his press conference last week.
