Eli Manning takes off mask, reveals he was playing in Peyton’s body
Eli Manning looked more miserable than anyone on Sunday night as he watched his older brother Peyton and the Denver Broncos embarrass themselves in the Super Bowl. Peyton threw two interceptions in the first half and was never able to get comfortable, and you could tell baby bro was feeling for him. Or, wait, was it actually baby bro wearing No. 18 for the Broncos?

Ironically, Eli is 2-0 in his career in Super Bowls and has thrown just one interception and three touchdowns. Peyton has thrown three interceptions and four touchdowns in three Super Bowl starts. He’s 1-2.
This particular meme was likely directed at Eli’s play in 2013, which included a career-high 27 interceptions. Given all the graphics we have already seen mocking Peyton on social media, I’m sure Eli doesn’t mind taking a cheap shot or two to soften the blow.
