Eli Manning explains sad face after Broncos' final Super Bowl TD
Eli Manning was at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night to watch his older brother match his Super Bowl wins total. That's not surprising. But his reaction to a late Broncos' touchdown certainly was.
Eli Manning was at Levi's Stadium on Sunday night to watch his older brother match his Super Bowl wins total. That's not surprising. But Eli's reaction after the Broncos' scored a touchdown with 3:08 to take a 22-10 lead certainly was:
In the pantheon of Manning Faces that one is immediately the new No. 1. But the Giants quarterback can explain that million-mile stare while family members celebrated around him.
“I was just focused on whether they’d go for two and the defense had to step up and make some stops,” Eli said in a video posted to TMZSports.
The Broncos did in fact go for two -- and they converted to make it 24-10. In the end it didn't matter; Denver's defense dominated until the very end and that proved to be the final score.
Either way, mystery solved. Originally, the theory was that Eli was crushed by the reality of no longer being the winningest Manning brother.
After the win, Peyton was asked about the Super Bowl ring tally now being at two each for he and Eli. He wasn't excited by the question.
"We don't do that," he told reporters. "That's not what we do. Maybe you guys, your brothers do that. That's not what we do."
