Back in 2012, Eli Manning won his second Super Bowl at Lucas Oil Stadium, the proclaimed “House that Peyton Manning built.” Now Peyton will have the chance to win his second Super Bowl in the place where Eli plays.
Super Bowl XLVIII will be played at MetLife Stadium this season. It will not be easy for the big brother as fans and analysts will probably be asking the ever-present question: Can Peyton Manning win the big game in the cold? If Peyton was to play at any stadium in which he could get some help in, Super Bowl XLVIII picked the right stadium in order for him to get that help.
Eli Manning has been helping big brother prepare for the big game this week. The help has ranged from what to expect from MetLife Stadium as far as conditions the playing field and so on. This will be the Denver Broncos‘ second trip to the stadium. They first visited in Week 2 of the NFL season when the Broncos beat the New York Giants by a score of 41-23. Of course, that was back in September when the weather is fair and cool. Now that Peyton is playing on the east coast in cold weather, perhaps help from his little brother would not be such a bad idea. Eli also faced the same Seattle Seahawks team back in Week 15, so he could provide some insight on how the Giants prepared for the opponent.
I believe having a little added help from Eli will benefit Peyton. Both quarterbacks are good at what they do, and are both always willing to learn even if they believe they have all the answers. Peyton will without any doubt take his brother’s advice and hopefully use it to help during perhaps the biggest game of his career.
