The Manning Brothers return with “Monday Night Football” to close out Week 10, returning to ESPN2 after a week-long hiatus to broadcast the Rams’ confrontation with 49ers, starting at 8:15 p.m. ET. And not only that, they can be set to disrupt what is known as ManningCast Curse. In each Peyton and Eli Manning’s In previous appearances calling “MNF”, at least one of their guests happened to be a NFL player, and each time, that player’s team suffers a major loss or injury the following week. Now, back in Week 10, the Mannings won’t have a single active player on their guest list.
Here is the famous lineup for ManningCast’s return to the 49ers-Rams:
- Al Michaels, Play “Sunday Night Football”
- Phil Mickelson, professional golfer
- Draymond Green, Golden Empire Warriors
- Philip Rivers, retired NFL quarterback
The most notable inclusion is probably Rivers, as he has publicly left the door open to a return this season, but as you can see, there isn’t a single officially active player in sight. Does this mean the ManningCast Curse is coming to an end? Perhaps the real answer is high school fans of Phil, the Warriors, NBC Sports and Rivers, St. Michael Catholic Crusaders, should be worried.
And for the record, here’s a rundown of how and when ManningCast has worked so far:
