Eli Manning’s a Sad Sack as Brother Peyton Wins Super Bowl and Hilarious Viral Memes Ensued
Celebrity| | By Felissa Allard
He may have his own Super Bowl rings, but that didn’t stop little brother Eli Manning from looking mighty moody when big bro Peyton won his second Super Bowl on Sunday.
An image caught right at the moment the Denver Broncos put the game on ice with a decisive fourth quarter touchdown shows the youngest Manning with a definite pout on his face. No matter his explanation, the image has gone viral. Really viral.

Most of the tweets played off of the brothers’ supposed sibling rivalry.
As of last night, both Mannings have won two Super Bowls, with Eli being named Super Bowl MVP twice, while Peyton only has one Super Bowl MVP, though the elder Manning has five league MVP awards. So while both brothers may be headed for the NFL Hall of Fame, Peyton is definitely considered a shoe-in.

Even before the Super Bowl win, all eyes were on Peyton this season and the possibility that this was his last. And if Peyton does indeed retire, Eli still has a chance of eclipsing him in any of his final years. Perk up, Eli, there’s always next season.
Pretty sure Eli had money on the Panthers. https://t.co/vKxkbhXSUi
