When Eli Manning said he was going to host NBC's Saturday Night Live, critics were quick to compare him to his older brother Peyton Manning, as usual. After all, Peyton had done an excellent job on SNL, and has appeared in several entertaining commercials. However, it seems Eli's performance may have outdone Peyton's for one organization. Employees at EA Sports, creators of the Madden NFL video game series, have been busy animating Eli Manning's touchdown celebration from a skit on SNL. In the skit, Manning wore a motion-capture suit to demonstrate what he does after scoring a touchdown. After pretending...

Denver Broncos Fantasy Football Projections

QB Peyton Manning (Denver) I’m projecting a down season for Peyton Manning for several reasons. For one, he’s going to a new team, in a new division, with a new system, and new players, new coaches, new surroundings, everything new.

AFC West Fantasy Rankings

In as little as two months, sports geeks around the country will begin to assemble for the annual ritual that has become the sports equivalent of Dungeons and Dragons: The Fantasy Football Draft.

Dallas Clark visits with Patriots

Two seasons ago, Dallas Clark had 100 catches from Peyton Manning. Now he’s still a free agent in mid May and was passed on by Peyton Manning and the Broncos for his former backup, Jacob Tamme. Clark has been on one visit so far, to Kansas City, who might have been looking at him purely as insurance for another Tony Moeaki injury, as they already have 2 solid tight ends on the...

The NFL’s Million Dollar Man
