Posted at 9:45 PM, Mar 07, 2016

"People always say we were raised on the game. That we come from a football family. That's true, but maybe it would be better if we changed the order of those words: It's family first, then football.

"Because, at some point for all of us, football ends. For my brother Peyton, it's ending now."

That's the opening of Eli Manning's tribute to his brother, Peyton, in honor of his retirement, made official on Monday.
