KSK’s favorite whipping blob, Peter King, is even more long-winded and meandering than usual this week, so it may be awhile before I can finish slogging through this 8,500-piece order of Petey McNuggets. In the meantime, let’s discuss the biggest NFL crossover into pop culture of the weekend besides Cleatus’ latest cameo on The Simpsons: Elisha hosting “Saturday Night Live”.
Peyton was funnier, but the variety of Eli’s skits must rank in the all-time annals of SNL history.

Yes. “All-time annals.” Eliminate redundancies and MMQB might actually come in under a page.
Anyway, our Uproxx colleagues at Warming Glow have a full breakdown, but I will add that it’s highly appropriate for Eli’s best sketch to be a play on something Peyton already did on the show. In lieu of further commentary, please enjoy a handful of unflattering, out-of-context screenshots of big hosting boy Eli.
For those who don’t get the reference.
