Who will win Thursday night's NFL season opener between the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens?

According to a bunch of puppies on Wednesday's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Peyton Manning and Co. will prevail.

Fallon used two bowls of kibble, representing the Broncos and Ravens, and nine puppies to predict the winner of Thursday night's game, based on whichever bowl had more puppies gathered around it.

After some adorable snuggling, the puppies took the stage.

It looked like a close game before one team -- er, bowl -- emerged victorious.

Fallon's puppies also correctly predicted the winner of last season's Super Bowl, the Ravens.

Thursday's rematch of January's AFC divisional playoff game airs at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT on NBC.
