Eva is cheerleading in football and is taking the Manning sports tradition to the next level. Maybe soon the fans will see her dominate the rink the same way her father dominated the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl meetups.

The Super Bowl love affair 

The Manning brothers had a love affair with the Super Bowl games. Between them, Eli and Peyton Manning won four Super Bowl titles in their careers. But it was Eli who fared better in the summit clash with a 2-0 record, that too against the best NFL dynasty of the 21st century.

The younger Manning dominated Tom Brady and the Patriots in both the Super Bowl games he appeared in. He and the Giants beat the Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII in 2008. They met again in Super Bowl XLVI in 2012 and again Manning prevailed over Brady. Eli cemented his legacy as one of the best QBs of his generation. He is living a retired life with family now and watching his kids grow up. They will surely take the Manning family’s sporting legacy ahead.
