The big game is over, and the Lombarky Trophy goes to Team Fluff, for the second year in a row. Puppy Bowl XIV was the bowl we couldn’t tear ourselves away from!

I know, I know…the internet’s abuzz with all the ins and outs of Brady’s loss and the Eagles flying. I mean, I guess the commercials were alright, and I won’t ever turn down an opportunity to watch JT break it down.

But the real fur flying I loved seeing was from the adorable young ‘uns from Puppy Bowl XIV. For the second year in a row, Team Fluff took the coveted Lombarky Trophy home, and all the dogs left the field as very good boys and girls!

Much like the human ballplayers’ fourth quarter, nails were being bitten as the dogs’ leads kept going back and forth between the teams. Kaleb Junior, a rescue from Puerto Rico’s devastation after Hurricane Maria scored the final and winning touchdown, though, and gave the ultimate win to Team Fluff and a score of 52-47.

Bear was the MVP of the game, with Mr. Wigglesworth winning the Underdog award, and just like at real games, there was a kiss (lick?) cam! Once again Tinder sponsored puppies and encouraged users to ‘swipe right’ on adorable puppy profiles. Social media fans lit the interwebs up with posts from the adorable kiss cam but I have to say–the halftime show pretty much was life last night.

Good boy, Bear! You're the @BISSELLclean MVP!

All in all, a successful bowl game, and we’re sure next year Team Ruff will be even hungrier for a chance at the title of champion.

The athleticism of these pups is truly re”bark”able… Puppy Bowl XIV is on now! . . . . . fans
