Eli Manning's humor has fans talking during 'Monday Night Football'
The ESPN2 ManningCast of “Monday Night Football” has been a hit since its Week 1 debut.
One common reaction to the Week 3 broadcast of the Dallas-Philadelphia game is that Eli Manning is actually quite funny. While Peyton Manning has hosted award shows and “Saturday Night Live” and appeared in many commercials, many football fans aren’t as familiar with Eli.
Here’s a small sample of what ManningCast viewers are saying on Twitter during the first half of the Cowboys-Eagles game:

ESPN would like if fans “discovering” Eli can be funny leads to more people checking out his college football-themed ESPN+ streaming show “Eli’s Places,” which has already produced some hilarious clips with Nick Saban and Ed Orgeron.
