But he led the Colts past the rival Patriots in the AFC and to a Super Bowl win over the Bears. His little brother, Eli, took even more abuse in the rough-and-tumble New York media market. But Eli proved all his doubters wrong by leading the Giants to a title. The back-to-back wins cemented the Manning family as NFL royalty.
