Eli Manning Explains Somber Reaction to Peyton's Game Winning Super Bowl 2016 Touchdown

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, younger brother of Denver Broncos Super Bowl winning quarterback Peyton Manning, became the talk of the weekend when his face became a meme!

Eli, 35, watched as the Broncos scored the game winning touchdown, but instead of looking like he was celebrating with the rest of his family, he remained extremely somber. In the video clip, Eli and Peyton‘s family, including dad and mom Archie and Olivia, brother Cooper, and more are all cheering on!

Eli was stopped by TMZ and asked about his face, to which he responded, “I was just focused on whether they’d go for two [extra points, to seal the game],” Eli said. “And uh, the defense had to step up and make some stops.”

When asked if he was amused by the viral memes, he responded, “Uh, yeah…It’s all good stuff.”

Both Eli and Peyton now have 2 Super Bowl rings each!
