(Newser) – The NFL marketing department would love this scenario—Manning vs. Manning for the league title. Peyton won't rule it out as he praised the work ethic and noted the bright future of his younger brother, writes the New York Times. "I feel very strongly this will not be the last Super Bowl that he will play in," he said of Eli.

The elder Manning knows a little something about these things, as his film study and attention to detail are well-documented—not to mention that Super Bowl ring he won last season with the Indianapolis Colts. So what about a head-to-head Super Bowl with Eli? "Maybe next year we'll have to answer that question," said big brother.
