On Sunday afternoon, the Manning brothers will be taking the field against one another for the third time in their respective careers. Each occasion has provided immense entertainment for fans, but mixed emotions for both superstars. They come from an extremely tight-knit family and maintain regular contact throughout the year.

That being said, for three hours this weekend, the two have to be mortal enemies – perhaps for the final time. Older brother Peyton has undergone several neck surgeries and is on the wrong side of 35. No one knows how much longer he will be suiting up. He will be looking for a win and perhaps final bragging rights against his brother.

In the case of Eli, a poor game will result in a disappointing 0-2 start to the 2013 season. That cannot happen, but of course it just might.

Which member of the First Family of Quarterbacking is set to come out on top?
