Today is the day, the big game is just hours away and we are so ready to see all the cuteness unfold.
As the afternoon rolls around you will find us glued to our TV screens as we prepare for the biggest game of the year...the 2019 Puppy Bowl. What, did you think we were talking about the Super Bowl? Not so fast!
Even though the Super Bowl is the biggest football game of the year it's the pre-show AKA Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl that we can't wait to watch year after year. It is technically a sporting event, so why not tune in and see it live?!
Before the New England Patriots face off against the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta, Georgia for Super Bowl LIII, an even cuter bunch of athletes—sorry Tom Brady, we still love you—will take the field and you can meet most of them right now.
This year, 93 puppies will compete on either Team Ruff or Team Fluff in order to come out as the top dogs of the 2019 Puppy Bowl.
If we're being honest, these guys and girls are already winners in our minds, because they're so stinking cute. What makes these little ones even more lovable is that they can all be adopted.
Each of the competitors have come from shelters throughout North America and even if they aren't on the winning team this Super Bowl Sunday, they can still win a forever home if someone watching them on TV, or reading this post, decides to rescue them.
Sounds like a pretty sweet gig, right? Play in the Puppy Bowl and potentially get adopted? Not a bad job at all.
Since we do still have to wait until this afternoon to watch these pups run around their stadium—which features kitten cheerleaders—we have figured out the best way to stay occupied until kick off.
We're going to stare at the precious puppy starting lineup below until the real game starts and we suggest you do the same.
What are you waiting for? There are cute puppies to ooh and ahh over right now, so get to it!
The 15th Annual Puppy Bowl airs on Sunday, Feb. 3 at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT on Animal Planet.
If you want to watch the actual Super Bowl, don't forget to switch over to CBS later today at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT to see if the Patriots or the Rams take home the title of Super Bowl LIII Champions.
