Before Saturday night’s GOP debate was over, the moderators prodded each candidate for their Super Bowl prediction. Finally, the real issues!

Here’s how they all picked:

Donald Trump: Panthers
• Ted Cruz: Panthers
• Marco Rubio: Panthers
• Jeb Bush: Broncos
• Ben Carson: Either the Panthers or Broncos
• Chris Christie: Broncos
• John Kasich: Panthers

Now, Ben Carson is the real winner here for correctly laughing at the question and giving a humorous response. It is, however, a smart move for Bush and Christie to choose the Broncos. If the Panthers, lose it will come as a relative shock. If the Broncos win, they’re both geniuses! It probably won’t help them earn votes, but it can’t hurt!
