They were groomed to be players from a young age because their father, Archie, played for the New Orleans Saints.
But when it was their time, they both made the most of their careers by winning two Super Bowls each.
The older Manning brother won with the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos.
Meanwhile, Eli got his rings with the New York Giants.
Though they are both retired, they continue to stay close to the game that made them household names.
Peyton is poised to take a role within the Broncos organization as the Walton-Penner family becomes the franchise’s new owners.
On the other hand, Eli remains a fixture within the Giants organization.
Together, they also give color to the alternative broadcast of Monday Night Football which is known as the “Manningcast”.
However, it’s no contest that Peyton had the better career, especially with his five Most Valuable Player awards.
While Peyton is already enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Eli’s case is still up for debate.
For that reason, it’s refreshing to see Eli getting more recognition than his brother.

The younger Manning tweeted, “I like Peyton’s new title” when the big board at the Ole Miss’ baseball field referred to him as Eli Manning‘s brother.
Eli Gets More Love In Oxford
It’s natural that the Rebels showed more love on Eli because he played college football at Ole Miss from 1999 to 2003.
Meanwhile, Peyton suited up for the University of Tennessee Volunteers.
Tennessee and Ole Miss are rivals in the Southeast Conference, which means that Peyton’s reference here is some sort of trash talk.
Therefore, Eli is the bigger star in Oxford while Peyton is the sidekick.
