THE BRONX - The countdown to Super Bowl XLVIII is winding down as the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos prepare to duke it out for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

While millions across the country are gearing up by donning their favorite jersey and making preparations for celebrations, others are enjoying the quirkier side of the big game.

Some people have picked their preferred team long ago, but others are placing their bets with the help of some animals. A panda, penguin and sea turtle all picked the Broncos to win this year's game. 

Those who are not big sports fans can also tune into the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, the slobbery, football-inspired event that brought in a total of 12.4 million viewers last year.
