Rooting for the Baltimore Ravens? Hoping the San Francisco 49ers win big?

Well, here's something we can all root for: puppies. Puppies chasing balls. Puppies chasing each other. Puppies captured chasing balls and each other in slow-motion. (Okay, enough said.)

If it's not the biggest game of the day, the Puppy Bowl IX, paws down, is certainly the most fur-ocious. But it gets even sweeter: The pigskin-loving pooches are all rescues.

In case you (and your four-legged friends) missed all the paw-dorable action, we're bringing you the view from the field. (Desktop users can scroll through the photos at the top.)
