Peyton and Eli Manning definitely know what it takes to win a Super Bowl. The brothers have combined to win a total of four Lombardi Trophies, making them the perfect people to ask when it comes to who will win Super Bowl LVIII.
During an interview on Saturday, the Mannings were each asked for their predictions for the big game, and they gave completely different answers (meaning one of them is going to end up being right).
On Peyton’s side, he decided to ride the underdog. The Chiefs are currently 1.5 points in Vegas, and Peyton thinks they’ll pull off an upset in the playoffs for the third straight week.
“Football isn’t fair,” Peyton said. via Ben Fawkes. “Just because the 49ers lost four years ago doesn’t mean the football gods owe it to them to win one. Football can be cruel that way. I think it’ll be a low score, it’ll be a defensive game. battle, 10-7 leaders.
Eli seemed shocked by Peyton’s low score prediction.
“CBS is going to be so excited about this game,” Peyton added.
If you weren’t already aware of the news, Super Bowl LVIII will begin on CBS at 6:30 p.m. ET. As for Peyton’s prediction, if it actually happened, it would become the second-lowest scoring Super Bowl in NFL history. The current record for the fewest scoring game belongs to the Patriots’ 13-3 victory over the Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

As for Eli, he also thinks it will be a defensive battle, but he disagrees with Peyton on who will win.
“I think the 49ers are going to win this game. It’s going to be close and end with a last-second field goal,” Eli said. “But I’m leaving with a strange score. I’m leaving 22-19.”
Eli certainly knows a thing or two about close Super Bowls since he played in two of them. In Super Bowl XLII, he led the Giants to a shocking 17-14 victory over the undefeated Patriots. In Super Bowl XLVII, he led the Giants to another victory against the Patriots, this time defeating them 21-17.
On Peyton’s side, he reached the big match four times, but all four ended up being failures, with each match decided by double digits. Peyton won two Super Bowls, one coming while he was with the Colts and the other while he was with the Broncos.
As for their choices, they stayed true to brand: the quarterback who spent his entire career in the NFC chose the NFC team and the QB who spent his entire career in the AFC chose the AFC team.
