Roush team predicts who will win Super Bowl
Roush Racing drivers were asked to weigh in on what they think will happen in this weeks’ Super Bowl showdown between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints.
David Ragan, Driver No. 6 UPS Ford Fusion:
"Peyton Manning will lead the Colts to the win. He has played in the Super Bowl before and will be ready to go."
Greg Biffle, Driver No. 16 3M Ford Fusion:
"I'm going to be cheering for the Saints in this year's Super Bowl because they beat one of the best teams in the league (the Vikings) to get there and I think they deserve a world championship after that type of effort."
Matt Kenseth, Driver No. 17 Crown Royal Ford Fusion:
"This is a tough one to pick. I honestly think it's a toss-up, but I'm going to pick the Colts to win Sunday's Super Bowl. I feel that Peyton Manning is one of the smartest players in the league today. He's been in this situation before, and that experience will help Sunday. The Colts have experienced this pressure before and are a team that seems to be able to score points at will. I think their experience will give them the advantage over the Saints."
Carl Edwards, Driver No. 99 Aflac Ford Fusion, No. 60 Copart/Fastenal Ford:
“I’m going to go with the Saints. I mean Payton Manning is a football robot. He is supernatural on the field, but I have to cheer for the Saints because with their history they are a Cinderella story and it is always fun to root for the underdog.”
Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Driver No. 6 CitiFinancial Ford
"That's a tough one. I'd probably say the Saints because they have a lot of weapons and I think they really want it. I think it will be a close game though."
Colin Braun, Driver No. 16 Conway Freight Ford
"It's going to be close, but the Saints offense is just too tough. If the offensive line can protect (Drew) Brees, it could be a long day for the Colts defense. I’m going with Saints 35, Colts 27.”
Paul Menard, Driver No. 98 Mendards Ford
"I lean toward the NFC teams, and I think it would be great for New Orleans to finally win a Super Bowl. Drew Brees and the entire team have done a great job all year and they deserve a win."
