NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Super Bowl 48 is a family affair for the Mannings.

When Denver 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 quarter back, 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 who played with the New Orleans Saints for 12 years and ended his career with the Minnesota Vikings.

Archie Manning and his wife, Libby, who have been married for 43 years, arrived in New Jersey on Wednesday from New Orleans.

"Just got in last night and had a great dinner with Eli and Abby and Peyton’s wife, Ashley.  Peyton and Ashley brought their twins. They are almost three years old," said Manning.

So it might be Peyton who is dishing the most advice this week.

"It’s his third time. His advice to other players is to try to make it as normal a week as you can and get ready to play the game on Sunday," said Manning.

The knowledge that comes with playing in three Super Bowls is a motivating force for the QB.

"His first experience was after the 2006 season with the Indianapolis Colts and they went down to Miami and played in the rain; the only game that has been played in that weather and they won that game. And he had another experience where they played again in Miami against the New Orleans Saints and I think he prefers winning so that’s what he’s going to try to do," said Manning.
