Monday Night Football is going to continue to be a family affair, as brothers and Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Eli Manning are returning with this alternate broadcast for 10 Monday Night Football games for the 2022 season

The Manning brothers host these alternate broadcasts of Monday Night Football on ESPN 2 simultaneously with the main Monday Night Football broadcast on ESPN.

The premise for Monday Night Football With Peyton and Eli is a casual, non-traditional remote telecast, with Peyton typically calling the game from Denver and Eli residing in New Jersey. As the brothers give their analysis of game action, big picture debates and historical perspective, they are joined by current and classic NFL stars each week, as well as other sports-crazed celebrities.

Peyton Manning is a two-time Super Bowl winner and five-time MVP with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos. He retired from the NFL in 2016 and was enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame in 2021. Since his retirement, he has been a seemingly constant presence on TV starring in commercials and a handful of other TV projects.

Eli Manning, meanwhile, won two Super Bowls of his own for the New York Giants. He retired in 2020. While not as present on TV as his older brother, he’s had some classic commercials as well, including an all-time great ESPN commercial with Peyton.

Fans have loved the Manning broadcasts, as the two brothers rip on each other and provide more unfiltered reactions to the events of the games.

Here is everything you need to know about Monday Night Football With Peyton and Eli.
