    Super Bowl 48 is a family affair for the Mannings. When Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning takes the field on Sunday, he'll have his father, Archie, a former NFL All-Pro player, and his brother Eli, a fellow quarterback, in his corner. But before the big game, patriarch Archie Manning had little advice for Peyton. "This is his third Super Bowl. I never even got close to a Super Bowl so he kind of knows," said Manning.

MYFOXNY.COM - With the Denver Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning in town for Super Bowl 48 on Sunday, NY Giants quarterback and younger sibling Eli Manning is showing some serious brotherly love.

"He came over for dinner last night and I cooked him a nice healthy dinner to get him prepared for the game and he got to hang out with my wife and the kids," said the younger Manning.

It might be a tough pill to swallow to watch your brother play in the biggest game of the year in your home field while you watch from the sidelines, but there has never been animosity between the two.

"I’m trying to help him out in any way I can all week. Two weeks ago I went to the AFC championship game and saw Peyton win and seeing that feeling in the locker room knowing you’re going to the Super Bowl is pretty special," said Manning.

As for game day against the Seattle Seahawks, Manning says his brother is ready.

"I looked at the weather. It’s not much wind. The weather should be pretty nice. I think it will be a great day for throwing the football and he shouldn't have any problem being as good as he always is," added Manning.
