FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WISH) – Former Colts coach Tony Dungy predicted Indianapolis will defeat the Patriots and go to Super Bowl XLIX.

Dungy talked about the AFC Championship with WISH-TV Sports Director Anthony Calhoun.

Dungy said, “It’s a case of confidence. They’ve got the right formula. I think you can throw the football on the Patriots. I think you can come up with some takeaways but it takes confidence and that’s what the Colts got by going to Denver last week and beating the Denver Broncos last week in a playoff game.”

If the game is close in the fourth quarter, Dungy believes Andrew Luck will make enough plays to get the Colts a win.
