Eli Manning once again upstages Tom Brady in the Super Bowl

Eli Manning is Tom Brady’s kryptonite.

This is no secret. But nobody expected the New York Giants quarterback to upstage Brady in a Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.

And while the Eagles and Patriots delivered a brilliant, entertaining Super Bowl, Manning still managed to grab some shine of his own in the fourth quarter with his “Dirty Dancing” routine with wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

It was the second-highest rated ad according to USA Today’s Ad Meter, finishing only behind Amazon’s “Alexa Loses Her Voice.”

The ad was so popular that the New York Post even went with this brilliant cover:


While Super Bowl LII won’t be forgotten anytime soon, Manning still somehow managed one of the most talked-about moments of a game he was nowhere near.

Bravo, Eli.
