Veteran quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning have returned to the field to promote the 2023 Pro Bowl.

Game on: legendary NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning have come out of retirement to star in a trio of hilarious spots heralding the 2023 Pro Bowl Games.

According to the NFL, 2023 Pro Bowl Games will look completely different. This year’s event, which takes place in Las Vegas from February 2 to February 5, will culminate in the first-ever NFL Flag football games and see AFC and NFC players compete in a multi-day, titanic test of skill, wit, strength and speed. The Manning brothers are also serving as head coaches for their AFC and NFC teams.

”No one is more uniquely positioned to coach our AFC and NFC Pro Bowl teams than the Mannings, with both Peyton and Eli having participated in multiple Pro Bowls,” Tim Ellis, chief marketing officer of the NFL, said in a statement. ”Their football expertise, coupled with their unparalleled humor and competitive sibling rivalry, will bring something entirely new and fun to The Pro Bowl Games. And that’s exactly what we set out to capture with these spots: football, flag, family and fun.”

The three films include ‘Brotherly love/hate,’ which shows the sibling rivalry of the Manning brothers in hilarious ways, ‘The art of flag pulling,’ which stars Eli and the New Orlean’s Saints’ Demario Davis and ’Water balloon toss,’ with Peyton and Las Vegas Raiders’ running back Josh Jacobs.

Three new spots, created by 72andSunny, follow AFC and NFC head coaches Peyton and Eli as they coach their teams to victory. They are slated to run until February 5, 2023, across US domestic broadcast, social and digital channels.
