On Sunday, millions of Americans -- and millions of others around the world -- will tune in to watch the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots compete in Super Bowl XLIV. But before the game kicks off, millions will tune in to watch another Super Bowl Sunday contest: The Puppy Bowl. 

The Puppy Bowl, which is played every Super Bowl Sunday, involves puppies competing against one another to claim the coveted title. Puppy Bowl XI may not have the hype of Super Bowl XLIV, but the competitors are undoubtedly cuter. (Sorry, Rob Gronkowski.) 

full list of competitors can be found on Animal Planet's website, which even offers fans the chance to play Fantasy Puppy Bowl
