The elder Manning has gotten quite a bit of flack through his first three broadcasts for sweating on camera, so it’s only right that his younger brother would continue to give him a hard time about it.
Although Eli is probably being a bit harsh, his back-and-forth jabs with Peyton has been a major highlight of their Monday Night Football broadcast together. Combined with their expert level analysis and stacked guest lists, the alternate viewing experience has provided fans with a unique and fun way to consume one football game a week.
The Manning brothers only agreed to do 10 total Monday Night Football broadcasts this season. They are expected back later this month.
In the meantime, fans will be anxiously awaiting the return of their witty banter.
