NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Peyton Manning has had a more accomplished career than little brother Eli — though many Giants fans would point to Super Bowl rings and argue that — but it turns out that Eli is better than Peyton at plenty of things.
The Giants’ signal-caller, who was dreadful for New York last season, took a rapid-fire pop quiz Wednesday on “Jay Mohr Sports” on FOX Sports Radio.
Mohr — a very good friend of the Boomer & Carton program on WFAN — asked Eli a series of questions about the two brothers, and they revealed a lot about who is superior in different aspects of life.
Most notably, Eli admitted that Peyton is the better quarterback. But the face of the Giants said he’s the better lover of the two.
As for other talents and fun facts?
Eli revealed that he’s mother Olivia’s favorite, is a better dresser, is cleaner, is more proficient in the kitchen and is a much better driver.
And Peyton? The future Hall of Famer and one of the all-time greats is dad Archie’s favorite, is a better advice giver and is more well-read.
38-year-old Peyton, a 13-time Pro Bowler, took the Broncos to the Super Bowl this past season, where they lost to the Seahawks. He threw a remarkable 55 touchdowns passes to just 10 interceptions, completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 5,477 yards.
Eli didn’t have as much success, and that’s quite the understatement. The two-time Super Bowl MVP, whose Giants missed the playoffs for the fourth time in five years, threw 18 touchdowns to go along with a league-high 27 interceptions. The 33-year-old completed 57.5 percent of his passes for 3,818 yards.
