The Manning brothers will revive old conference rivalries at this week's first ever Pro Bowl Games in Las Vegas.
Eli will be coaching the NFC against his older brother Peyton, who will oversee the AFC.
Eli Manning spent 16 seasons in the NFC -- all with the New York Giants. Meanwhile, Peyton split his career between the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos but remained a stalwart of the AFC. Together, the brothers combined for 18 Pro Bowls and four Super Bowl rings.
As head coaches, they’ll be tasked with picking among the 44 Pro Bowlers available to them for each of the eight skills competitions and constructing lineups for the three seven-on-seven flag football games.
This season’s Pro Bowl has undergone a major facelift. Taking a page out of other major sports’ equivalents, the Pro Bowl will now be a week-long celebration featuring skills challenges.
In addition to the competitions, one of the biggest changes at the Pro Bowl will be the substitution of flag football in place of tackle. The NFL said this decision was made to both “create a fresh take on what had become quite stale” and improve player safety and decrease the risk of injury.
