NEW YORK (AP) — Peyton Manning had a little fun with little brother Eli's sad face at the Super Bowl during a "Tonight Show" appearance.

Peyton said he understood why Eli wasn't elated like other relatives who were shown celebrating after Denver's late touchdown sealed the Broncos' win over the Carolina Panthers.

He told host Jimmy Fallon during the show that aired Wednesday that Eli had his game face on and was simply analyzing the game.

Then, he and Fallon pivoted a bit where they spoke to a life-sized cutout of Eli, the New York Giants quarterback who won two Super Bowl rings himself.

Peyton kept telling cardboard Eli about big moments in his life, including being drafted No. 1 by the Colts and his wife being pregnant with twins. The camera kept showing Eli's expressionless face.
