Same: A Manning is breathing down Brady's neck
Before Super Bowl XLII in 2008, Eli Manning was a nothing in the debate about the best quarterbacks ever. Even after the Giants won, there wasn't much thought that he'd rise to greatness. His brother Peyton, however, had won his first Super Bowl a year earlier, and Manning and the Colts would go on to play in another in 2010, getting perilously close to Tom Brady's total of three Super Bowl wins. Now Eli can earn his second ring with a win Sunday, and he'd have done it against Brady both times. Same family, different quarterback for Brady to contend with.
