With everyone trying to guess whether the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks will win Super Bowl XLVIII, Jimmy devised a fool-proof, ridiculously adorable prediction plan — ask the puppies! So if you want to know the winner and you want your heart to melt, watch the results below!
During his time as the host of Late Night, Jimmy Fallon has been known to have an adorable secret weapon to help him predict all the big sporting events — fuzzy, cuddly, playful little labrador-retriever puppies. On Jan. 30, Jimmy enlisted his crack team of prognosticators to unveil whether the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks will win Super Bowl XLVIII. And the puppies picked…
The ‘Late Night’ Puppies Pick Denver Broncos For Super Bowl XLVIII
The Denver Broncos! Sorry, Richard Sherman!
Here’s how the puppies worked their magic. Jimmy placed two bowls — one for the Broncos, one for the Seahawks — full of dog food on the ground. Then after holding the seven adorable pups in a small cage for a moment, Jimmy let them free to make their pick. Hilariously, five puppies were too shy to sample any of the fixings, but two dogs did immediately lunge at the Denver Broncos bowl. So start better large on Denver, guys!
Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Late Night’ Puppy Predictors: How Good Are They?
As we said, Jimmy’s let the puppies predict many other things before. So what’s their success rate, you ask? Well, the puppies correctly predicted Argo to win Best Picture at the Oscars in 2013, the Broncos to beat the Baltimore Ravens in the 2013 NFL season opener, the Boston Red Sox to win the 2013 World Series, and the Ravens to beat the San Francisco 49ers to win Super Bowl XLVII.
They’ve had one lone failure — the puppy Barry Frick incorrectly picked Verrazano to win the 2013 Kentucky Derby (the horse Orb actually won). So in total, the puppies have an 80 percent success rate. So seriously, if they say the Broncos are going to win, they’re probably right.
