Elisha Nelson "Eli" Manning is an American football quarterback for the New York Giants of the National Football League and is the active iron man for consecutive starts by a quarterback.
He is the son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and the younger brother of Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Manning played college football at the University of Mississippi after attending prep school at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans.
He was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and immediately traded to the New York Giants, who in return gave up a package highlighted by fourth overall selection Philip Rivers.
Manning holds Giants franchise records for most passing yards, touchdown passes and completed passes in a career, and the NFL record for most fourth-quarter touchdown passes in a season.
He led the Giants to victory in Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI, defeating the New England Patriots in both games.
Manning was also named Most Valuable Player in each Super Bowl, becoming one of five quarterbacks in history to have been given this honor twice.
