Tom Brady Glad He Is Playing Peyton, And Not Eli Manning In ‘The Match’
Tom Brady and Peyton Manning have long been adversaries during their NFL careers. Brady bested Manning 11 times in the 17 games they played against each other during their respective careers. Although Manning might not have had the success against Brady on the football field, he will get another crack at Brady later this month, this time on the golf course in The Match II.
Brady and Manning will pair up with Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods respectively, to play in a charity event to help raise money for coronavirus relief on May 24.
In speaking with ESPN, Brady said that he is happy that he is going up against Peyton Manning, and not Eli Manning. “No, you kidding me? He’s got his fair share of mine, too. Eli’s the one I’m actually happy I’m not playing ’cause I got no chance against Eli on the golf course. Peyton, I got a shot.”
Now whether or not the reason Brady would rather play Peyton over Eli has anything to do with the fact that Brady lost to the younger Manning brother in the Super Bowl twice in his career is unknown, but this match still can be a good one.
Fans can watch The Match II on May 24 with the tee time set for 3:00 p.m. and can be watched on TBS and TNT.
