ESPN’s Manningcast has taken the sports world by storm, featuring two of the greatest quarterbacks the NFL has ever seen. But what’s the age difference between Peyton and Eli Manning? Let’s find out.

Peyton and Eli Manning are two of the greatest quarterbacks ever. Both left their mark in the NFL, with Peyton winning two Super Bowls, one with the Indianapolis Colts and another with the Denver Broncos. 

Eli Manning is an equally legendary figure, especially among New York Giants fans. He led the Giants to underdog Super Bowl victories against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI, winning the MVP in both games.

Now, both brothers have transitioned into the world of media. But what’s the age difference between Peyton and Eli Manning?

Peyton and Eli make popular Manningcast debut in 2021

In July of 2021, ESPN announced that Peyton and Eli Manning would be joining Monday Night Football. However, they would be part of an alternate MNF broadcast on ESPN2 titled Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli.

This quickly became known as the ‘Manningcast’, and was received extremely well by fans.

The premise sees the two former NFL quarterbacks provide commentary and insight on the Monday night game from their own homes.

They’re usually joined by special guests (this week they were joined by Kevin Hart, Bill Parcells, Condoleeza Rice, and Julian Edelman) while taking the mickey out of each other.

“Offering multiple Monday Night Football viewing options for the next three seasons continues our innovation efforts and provides additional value for our fans,” chairman of ESPN and sports content Jimmy Pitaro said at the time.

“Peyton and Eli will bring a different approach, delving into conversation about broader, big-picture topics while also honing in on the game, much like fans do when watching with their family and friends.”

When is the next Manningcast on?

Unfortunately, we don’t know the Manningcast schedule in advance. However, Peyton and Eli are scheduled for ten broadcasts this season, and Week 11 was their seventh so far.

With 17 Monday night games in total across the regular season, that means they have three broadcasts left between now and the end of the season.
