When his brother Peyton Manning's team, the Denver Broncos, scored a critical touchdown that helped them defeat the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, cameras captured Eli looking less than enthused about his older brother's soon-to-be victory.
On Monday the Giants star answered the question on everyone's mind – why the heck did he look so unhappy watching his older bro on the field?
"I was focused on whether they were going for two, and knew the defense had to step up and make some stops," Eli told TMZ.
