Manning Bowl Record
The fact that Eli and Peyton play in different conferences has resulted in the "Manning Bowl" occurring on only two occasions. The first meeting was the season opener of 2006. Eli completed 20 of 34 pass attempts for 2 TDs and 1 INT. Peyton had a subpar game, going 25-41 for 261 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. Despite his lackluster performance, Peyton's Colts pulled out the victory 26-21. That season the Colts would finish 12-4 and go onto win the Super Bowl and the Giants went 8-8 losing in the Wild Card playoff.
In their second meeting, Peyton showed his little bro who was boss. Big bro went off completing 20 of 26 pass attempts for 355 yards, 2 TDs, and a QB rating of 145.5. Indianapolis routed the Giants 34-18 as Eli had a QB rating of 85.6. With his Colts sporting a 2-0 record against Eli's Giants, this one goes to Peyton. Colts fans just wish one of these games had been a Super Bowl.
