NEW YORK (AP) _ Eli Manning and big brother, Peyton, got a chance to spend a few hours together and the main topic of conversation wasn’t the upcoming Super Bowl.

Instead of going over how Peyton and the Denver Broncos might attack the Seattle Seahawks’ stingy defense for Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium, the focus for the two quarterbacks was the newest member of Eli’s family, 7-month-old Lucy.

When Peyton arrived at Eli’s home in Hoboken, N.J., on Tuesday night, he got to meet and hold his niece for the first time.  Eli didn’t make him change any diapers. His biggest contribution might have been that he didn’t prepare the chicken dinner. He certainly didn’t want any responsibility in case Peyton got sick for the NFL championship game, which is being played in Eli’s home stadium.
