Donald Trump likes the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl.

In a pre-taped interview with CBS that aired on Sunday, the Republican presidential candidate said that although he believed that the Carolina Panthers were likely a stronger team than the Broncos, he's rooting for the Broncos because of his personal relationship with quarterback Peyton Manning.

"Your Carolina team is sort of a hot team, and the quarterback is doing great," Trump told "Face The Nation" host John Dickerson.
