The ultimate sibling rivalry, big brother Peyton versus little brother Eli, may be the most exciting potential matchup in a New York-Indy Super Bowl, but it may not be the most important.
Eli has come out of his brother's shadow and for the early part of the season had people questioning who the better Manning was, as he took his Giants to an early undefeated record and had his offense dominating opposing defenses.
Peyton erased the argument fairly quickly though, as he has taken it upon himself—with six fourth-quarter comebacks and a seven-game win streak—to put the Colts back on pace to secure yet another playoff berth after a scary 3-4 start.
The Giants have built themselves a pretty solid resume and share the best record in the NFC at 11-3 with Carolina. And everyone is preparing themselves to see a repeat appearance by them in this year's Super Bowl, while the Colts have risen from the dead to a 10-4 record and have fast become the team that no one wants to play this postseason.
The Manning brothers have captained their teams into playoff contention this year, but what would each be without their supporting casts?
