MEET the pups vying for MVP: most valuable pup!
The 17th Annual Puppy Bowl is today, just before tonight’s Super Bowl 2021, and arguably the better of two televised Sunday traditions where beings chase after balls.
Move over Tom Brady and Antonio Brown, the real players on everyone’s fantasy team are Aaron Pawdgers, George Kibble, and a two-legged dog named Jett.
It’s Team Fluff vs. Team Ruff out there, and the smack-talking and paw-licking could get serious.
The annual Puppy Bowl was made to inspire people to adopt dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Not missing a chance for puns, Snoop Dogg and his bff Martha Stewart will be hosting the bowl this year.
Team Fluff went paw-to-paw over Team Ruff last year to win the “Lombarky” trophy.
That makes Team Ruff this year’s underdogs.
ESPN’s Monday Night Football announcer Steve Levy will co-host the fur-filled rivalry with SportsCenter host Sage Steele.
Animal lovers Kristen Bell, Valerie Bertinelli and Food Network star Duff Goldman will also provide some pooch commentary.
“Rufferee” Dan Schachner will have his hand at reffing the game for the 10th year in a row.
Meanwhile, some cuddly kittens are scheduled for some purrfect performances.
There’s even a pregame show with some pawsome sports correspondents, including Rodt Weiler, James Hound and Sheena Inu.
Field reporters Brittany Spaniel and Herman Shepard will provide some howling commentary.

There are some ways you can hound down the three-hour show.

You can watch the canines square it out on the Discovery+ App and the Animal Planet network.
