NFL Network broadcasted a program last night titled 'The Timeline - Peyton Manning's Summer School' which reflected on the legendary gunslinger and the 2013 Denver Broncos which set a bunch of offensive records.

The documentary featured a scene with Peyton playing the basketball game 'Knockout' with his brother Eli Manning at the Cameron Indoor stadium.

As you can see in the tweet further down in this article, the game transpired exactly how you thought it might do between two brothers, no matter how famous they are in the sporting world.

As the video shows, when Peyton missed a layup, Eli knocks the ball away from his hands as it rebounds from the rim of the hoop.

In response, the former Broncos quarterback decides to play actual defense against his brother, something which is a completely illegal move for the game of 'Knockout', and this was a fact his Giants star brother didn’t mind pointing out. Eli reacted by holding back his brother as he tried to get his basketball back from outside the court.

This wasn't the only part of the show when the brothers got on each other's nerves.

In another scene on the program, Eli can be seen eating some chips during what looks like the two studying film, when Peyton grabs the bag away from his brother and complains about him eating loud by saying: “You’re killing me with that crunching!”

Brotherly love some may call it.

While Peyton is enjoying retirement after winning the Super Bowl last February with the Broncos, Eli will be preparing for a game against the Baltimore Ravens this weekend, in hope that he can earn his team's third win of the season.
