Who will win Manning Bowl III?

Peyton_Eli_2013Manning Bowl III doesn’t make Peyton or Eli — or parents Archie and Olivia — very comfortable.

But if there is a Manning Bowl IV at MetLife Stadium next February, well, the whole family would like that just fine.

The Super Bowl.

“Obviously, every year being in two different conferences, it’s always a possibility,” Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning says. “The teams that I’ve played for in the past have always been in the hunt and been to two. And he’s always been in the hunt. So, we don’t necessarily talk about it.

“We’ve played each other twice. I don’t think either of us really enjoy it very much.”

Manning has a 2-0 edge in NFL matchups with brother Eli, the New York Giants quarterback, both from when Peyton was a Colt. Eli has two Super Bowl rings; Peyton has one.

“It’s still neat because it doesn’t happen very often and it is neat seeing your big brother on the sideline or seeing him before the game,” Eli says. “Those moments are the things you remember and we’ll remember for a long time. Hopefully, when I think back on these games that we played against my brother, I can think back and remember at least one win.”
