Eli Manning's focus on Super Bowl

INDIANAPOLIS -- Eli Manning landed in his brother's backyard on Monday afternoon but the New York Giants quarterback says he likely will not see Peyton Manning this week before Super Bowl XLVI.

"I don't have any plans, right now, to see Peyton," Manning said. "I know I won't be going over to his house anytime this week. The last Super Bowl I played in, he was in Arizona starting on Wednesday or Thursday and I never saw him then."

"I'll talk to him throughout the week, like I always do," Manning continued. "Besides that, I am going to keep my normal routine and probably will not see a whole lot of family throughout the week."

Football's two most famous brothers are a big topic this week. Manning is going for his second Super Bowl trophy against Tom Brady while Peyton's future with the Indianapols Colts remains hazy.

But it's a good bet that Peyton will try to remain out of the spotlight with a media crush in his town.

"The one thing Peyton told me was that the only two quarterbacks anyone should be talking about this week are Tom and Eli," Archie Manning told ESPNNewYork.com's Ian O'Connor.
