Monday Night Football will continue to be a family affair, with brothers and Super Bowl winners Peyton Manning and Eli Manning returning with their alternate broadcast, aka the Manningcast, for ten Monday Night Football games for the 2022 season.
The Manning brothers host these alternate Monday Night Football broadcasts on ESPN 2, while the main Monday Night Football broadcast is on ESPN.
Peyton calls the game from Denver and Eli at home in New Jersey, giving them a different perspective on game action, big picture discussions, and historical status, as well as other sports-crazed individuals.
Peyton Manning has been enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame in 2021. He has been a seemingly constant present on television, particularly in commercials and other shows.
Eli Manning, who is a little older, won two Super Bowls for the New York Giants in 2020. Hes also had a variety of classic commercials, including an all-time great ESPN commercial with Peyton.
Fans have enjoyed the Manning broadcasts, as the two brothers rip on each other and provide more unfiltered responses to the games'' events. In May 2022, the broadcast won a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Live Television Series.
Here''s what you need to know about.

Peyton and Eli will teach you how to watch Monday Night Football.
The traditional Monday Night Football broadcast on ESPN is as usual (with the occasional ABC simulcast), while viewers who wish to tune in can do so by watching ESPN2.
The ESPN2 cable channel is included in almost all traditional cable and satellite agreements that feature the major sports network; simply check your local listings for which channel it is on in your area. Non-traditional live TV streaming services, including Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV, also offer ESPN2. If you have any of these services, but do not happen to be in front of your television for the game, you may use your provider login credentials to watch the game on the Watch ESPN website or app.
There will be no need of cable to see the alternate broadcast, however, as cord cutters may stream live via the ESPN Plus streaming service for four games during the season.
ESPN Plus is available as a standalone service with a monthly subscription fee, as part of the Disney Bundle with Disney Plus and Hulu or as a standard feature with Hulu with Live TV. You may then see ESPN Plus on your TV, computer, smart device, etc.
