You can watch Peyton Manning and Eli Manning watch football again in 2022.
It may sound confusing, but surely any diehard fan knows what the brothers started in 2021. The “ManningCast” airs on ESPN2 during Monday Night Football. It’s exactly what it sounds like, with Peyton and Eli watching and commentating on the games. They also bring on A-list special guests each week.
On Peyton’s Instagram on Thursday, the former Broncos QB and Hall of Famer announced the show will return this upcoming football season. The duo will commentate on 10 games, including the Broncos at Seahawks in Week 1. That’s sure to be juicy, as Peyton lost to the Seahawks and Russell Wilson 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Wilson signed a massive contract extension with the Broncos on Thursday, keeping him in Denver the next seven seasons. It will be fascinating to watch how Peyton comments on the game, being the Broncos’ former QB and his history with the Seahawks.
The announcement on Peyton’s Instagram was largely dominated by actress Lily Collins. She stars in Peyton’s “favorite show,” Emily in Paris, which he famously spoofed on Saturday Night Live. This one is also pretty funny:

That’s fantastic! Well played all around.
The Manning brothers will call nine regular season games and then the Monday Night Football game that’s part of Wild Card Weekend as well. We’ll see if the Broncos somehow end up back on that stage in their first playoff appearance since Manning retired six years ago.
