Eli Manning talked to brother Peyton “a little bit” about the Ravens

There are only 32 starting NFL quarterback jobs in the world at any given moment.

There are roughly 311 million people US residents. If 49% of them are male, that makes 152,390,000. Based on census numbers, about 10.6 percent of males are between the ages of 20-34 (NFL quarterback age, give or take). Using these numbers, we get a figure of 16,153,340.

Over 16 million men in the U.S. vying for 32 “dream” jobs.

And two of those jobs are held by brothers.

Hardly seems fair.

But that’s the case, as Peyton and Eli Manning have been starting alongside each other as NFL quarterbacks since Eli joined the league in 2004.

And now, in another unlikely scenario, the Ravens get to face the brothers Manning – who have three Super Bowl rings combined – in back-to-back weeks. We would all like to forget how the first Manning visit went, as Peyton and the Broncos thrashed the Ravens 34-17.

They’ll get another crack at Archie’s spawn this week, as Eli leads his 8-6 New York Giants into town.

Eli spoke to the Baltimore media this week, and was asked if Peyton gave him an advance scouting report of the Ravens defense, as only a brotherly fellow quarterback could.

“I talked to him a little bit and watched the game,” Eli said. “Our offenses are a little different. I tried to just watch the game and see what they were doing and how the defense played certain looks. So, I talked to him a little bit, but it’s really going to be a matter of our own preparation and trying to understand what type of scheme we’re going to run against them.”

However, in the past, Peyton’s information has done little to help Eli. According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, the previous two times that Eli’s Giants have played a team that Peyton’s team had beaten, the Giants lost.

The Ravens will hope to make it 0-3, as a win would FINALLY secure them the AFC North title. They’ve been searching for the elusive clinching win all month.
