INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Archie Manning got to see his son Eli win his second Super Bowl championship, this time in the city where Peyton made his career.
Eli Manning was chosen MVP of the New York Giants’ 21-17 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday night. For the second time in four years, he led the Giants on a last-minute touchdown drive that beat the Patriots for the title.
The week leading up to the game was overshadowed by talk about whether Eli’s older brother Peyton will be back with the Colts next season after missing a year because of neck operations.
Archie Manning said after the game on Sunday that “it’s special” to see Eli win a title in the stadium where his other son has excelled.
