The sons of Archie Manning will face each other for the first time in their NFL careers Sunday night when Peyton and the Indianapolis Colts play Eli and the New York Giants
It will mark the first time in league history that brothers have opposed each other as starting quarterbacks. The match up almost overshadows just how good a game it is.
The Colts (14-2) had the best regular-season record last season, opening the campaign with 13 straight wins. The season ended in disappointment with a 21-18 loss to eventual Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC semifinals.
The Giants (11-5) won the NFC East and made the playoffs for the first time in three years. New York was a no-show in the opening round of the playoffs, losing 23-0 to Carolina.
