If there is anyone who knows what it takes to win the Super Bowl, it's Hines Ward and Terrell Davis who won two each in their storied NFL careers.

I got a chance to have a quick conversation with them to talk about this Sunday's Super Bowl 56 between the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams as well as their partnership with Tums.

Believe it or not, Terrell Davis is the last running back to be named Super Bowl MVP when he did it against the Packers in 1998. I asked him if there was a running back on Sunday that would break that streak, who will it be?

"I guess the leader would be Joe Mixon. I think because he gets volume touches and he's pretty good. I mean, the guys good out of the back field, has nice soft hands, has power behind him as well. I think if the Bengals win this game, I think it's going to be primarily - I think the heavy load is going to be on Mixon to get that done."

I asked a similar question to Hines Ward, who was MVP of Super Bowl 40 when his Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Seattle Seahawks. Only two receivers have won Super Bowl MVP since then, one being Santonio Holmes and the other being Julien Edelman. I ask him if a receiver was going to win it this weekend, who does he think it will be?

"I would if there is a wide receiver, I would look for either Cooper Kupp, because he's been killing it all season long, and then there's OBJ. I just look for Jamar Chase and Jalen Ramsey, I think that matchup will go down, I think everybody is going to be keyed on that matchup. I just don't see Chase dominating Jalen Ramsey like that, so I'm going to eliminate Chase from MVP. So I'm going to look for Cooper Kupp or OBJ to win the MVP title if it comes down to a wide receiver."

I also asked the two NFL legends to give their pick against the spread for Sunday's big game, but you'll have to catch the video on YouTube to find out their answers.
