Eli Manning is the youngest member of football's royal family, but it wouldn't be the royal family without him. While Eli may never put up the numbers as older bro Peyton, he can currently hoist more Super Bowl trophies. Eli led the New York Giants to two Super Bowl victories (XLII, XLVI) over the same opponent, Tom Brady and the favored New England Patriots. Manning may be remembered most for his circus pass to David Tyree at Super Bowl XLII that led to one of the greatest upsets in sports history over the undefeated New England Patriots.
Elisha Nelson 'Eli' Manning (born January 3, 1981) is an American football quarterback for the New York Giants of the National Football League. He is the son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and the younger brother of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. Manning played college football at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) after attending prep school at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans. He was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and immediately traded to the New York Giants, who in return gave up a package highlighted by fourth overall selection Philip Rivers. Manning won the Most Valuable Player award in Super Bowl XLII in 2008 after leading the Giants to victory over the previously undefeated New England Patriots.
