Peyton and Eli Manning returned Monday night to cover the New England Patriots’ matchup against the Arizona Cardinals as both teams looked to finish the season strong.
The “ManningCast” simulcast featured Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow as its first guest of the night. As the trio deviated from talking about the game, Peyton Manning asked Burrow about his cigar smoking habit and reminded the audience of the famous photo of the quarterback smoking one after LSU’s national championship win over Clemson to end the season. 2019-20.

Manning then asked Burrow who smoked it better and showed a picture of then-Alabama quarterback Mac Jones shirtless and with a cigar in his mouth alongside Burrow’s locker room smoking adventure. Each of the quarterbacks chuckled as the image of Jones appeared next to Burrow.
“Sorry, Mac. I think I got you, mate,” Burrow replied.
Peyton Manning praised Burrow for keeping his shirt on during the photo.
“That was a veteran trade,” the former Indianapolis Colts quarterback said.

Eli Manning chimed in: “I’m sure Mac is very excited for us to show shirtless pics.”
The broadcast showed the side-by-side image once more before the broadcast went into a commercial break with Jones’ Patriots offense returning to the field.
“I’m sure Mac will be very happy about that,” added Peyton Manning.
For what it’s worth, Jones entered the 2022 season looking shredded. His girlfriend posted a thumbnail photo of Jones in August.
