Now that we know it’s going to be the New England Patriots vs. the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, the next logial question is, “who’s going to be playing in the Puppy Bowl?”

Fans of adorable pups will be happy to learn that Animal Planet has just announced the starting lineups for their now annual event, which runs counter to the Super Bowl and features rescue dogs frolicking about on a miniature gridiron field of their own.
