puppies, puppy predictors, super bowl, winners, champions, super bowl li, super bowl 51, the tonight show"The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon has continued his annual tradition of having a pack of adorable puppies pick the Super Bowl champions, with another edition of Puppy Predictors taking place on Thursday night's program. And while the pups clearly had a favorite, really, we're all winners when watching ridiculously cute canines prance around.

In the bit, Fallon explained that the dogs would be declaring a winner in Sunday's Super Bowl LI matchup between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. The deciding factor: Which of two bowls of kibble -- one inscribed with the Patriots' name, the other with the Falcons' -- attracted more of the nine yellow labrador puppies present.

As Fallon released the hounds (one of them named Gary Frick Jr., in a nod to the host's own yellow lab), they quickly crowded around the Falcons' bowl, thus naming them the puppies' official pick to win it all on Sunday. And Falcons fans should be feeling pretty good about that prediction, since last year, the Puppy Predictors ended up selecting the correct Super Bowl champs, the Denver Broncos.

Super Bowl LI is set for Sunday, February 5. But we can all agree that that matchup won't be nearly as adorable as this one.
