You probably won’t read, or see, or hear another word about it all week (insert loud guffaw here), but just so you know, the football-flingin’ Manning brothers are coming to a TV screen near you on Sunday afternoon.

Seems Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands to play Eli Manning and the Giants for the third instalment of the Manning Bowl.

We’re thinking this might cause, as they say, a bit of a stir.

Twice before, the Mannings have gone toe-to-toe, both times when Peyton was an Indianapolis Colt and both times Eli has tasted defeat.

The first time, in September of 2006, Eli was not yet a fully formed NFL star. He had a decent enough day, completing 20-of-34 passes for 247 yards and two TDs but Peyton and the Colts prevailed 26-21.

In the rematch four years later, Eli had already won a Super Bowl but he had a dreadful game and the Giants were blown out 38-14.
