“Eli and I have always supported each other. I think Eli is analyzing the game and the end of the game kind of like how I would as if he was playing it. And so he was just happy.” Peyton explained to Fallon.
When many amongst the supporter base are tagging this as sibling rivalry, Peyton Manning tagged the incident as “funny”.
“I’ve seen that look before. I recognized it. In other big moments in my life he’s had that expression.” Manning added.
The segment within the show turned more hilarious when the 41-year-old Fallon pulled out a cardboard cutting featuring Eli’s reaction. Both men then went on to have a bit of fun with the cutout.
“Eli, I got us front row tickets to Adele!” Fallon taunted as Eli’s cutout stayed mum with the sad face. Peyton Manning also cracked a humor by stating that he and his wife Ashley Thompson are expecting twins to which Eli produced another predictable expression.
Watch the segment yourselves from “The Tonight Show”.
