A little bit about The ManningCast
It was two years ago, when ESPN announced a three-year deal with the Manning brothers to cover the 2021, 2022 and 2023 seasons, with 10 games set for ESPN2 each year. This past campaign, saw Peyton and Eli calling nine regular-season games and one playoff game - the above-mentioned Cowboys vs Bucs. To say that their show has been a hit would be an understatement. Indeed, with their criticism of the Broncos’ last-minute decision-making in the 2022-23 Week 1 game going viral on social media. Then, there was also their infamous reaction to a streaker getting tackled earlier this year. Truth be told, so great has their success been on the show that we fully expect ESPN to extend their deal beyond the 2023 season.
