An informal approach to football
They put the football action in a broader context and provide a historical viewpoint, as well as invite big names in the NFL, both past and present. They exchange stories with their guests and joke around with each other.

The brothers sometimes do the show together physically, but usually 45-year-old Peyton does the telecast from his home in Denver, while 40-year-old Eli airs from his New Jersey residence.
The Mannings signed a deal with ESPN to produce 10 total broadcasts for the season. Thus, they will be missed on some weeks. The schedule for the whole season has not yet been released by ESPN.
The broadcast has been a success, with fans appreciating the brothers’ casual and lighthearted approach. Their guests might not be feeling as enthusiastic though, as coincidentally, all those who came on the show have lost their next games after their appearance on MNF with Peyton and Eli. The phenomenon has even been dubbed “The Manning Curse”.
