UNDATED (NBC) -
If you were planning to watch the big game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos on Sunday, well, sorry to spoil it for you, but there's really no need. On Thursday's "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," the winner was revealed.
Well, the likely winner. As Fallon pointed out early in the show, he has a "secret weapon" when it comes to predicting things, "and it's puppies."
The host gathered seven little dogs — and two team-branded bowls of kibble — to tackle the task.
"I want a clean vote here," he warned the group before sending them out on the field. "No random wandering, peeing or butt sniffing!"
And with those rules in place, Fallon released the hounds, or in this case, the little golden retrievers.
Almost immediately, two of the pups dug into to the bowl marked Broncos, and evidently the rest of them weren't so hungry, because that's all it took.
The kickoff hasn't even happened, but the game's basically over. The Broncos have it.
See, Fallon's puppies know what they're doing. Last year alone, his band of pooches correctly predicted that the Ravens would win the big game and that "Argo" would win the Oscar for best picture.
Sorry, Seattle fans! This one seems like a lock.
