Manningcast Week 8 Guest List: Here Are Who Will Join Peyton, Eli Manning On ‘Monday Night Football’

“Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli” returns for its fifth episode in Week 8, and there is a question on the minds of football fans preparing for the show.

Who will you be bringing as guests for this week’s broadcast?

In week 7, the Manning brothers put together a star-studded guest list with Marshawn Lynch, Tom Brady, Sue Bird, and Drew Brees that created numerous memorable moments (though nothing topped Lynch, who admitted he had been drinking Hennessy and blurted out lots of profanity). during transmission). After that, viewers are excited to find out who they have in store for Week 8.

The Mannings have tended to announce their guest lists on the day of their broadcast and typically feature one per quarter. Guests often have ties to the teams they face in each game, much like Lynch (Seahawks) and Brees (Saints) did in last week’s game.

As such, it’s no surprise to see a couple of people in ties with the Giants on this week’s show given Eli Manning’s connection to the team.

Here’s a look at the guest list for the Week 8 broadcast of “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli” during the Chiefs vs. Giants.

Why did the Manning choose Stewart for this game? Well, he’s a huge Giants fan and will enjoy the opportunity to talk about the status of his favorite team with the Manning.

Oh yeah, Stewart also recently appeared on an episode of “Eli’s Places” and helped the former Giants quarterback recreate the first college football game. It was probably pretty easy to get it given her relationship with Eli.

Michael Strahan

The guest for the second quarter of “Monday Night Football” will be Michael Strahan. It is easy to understand why Strahan was called in to join this program. He played in 216 games as a member of the Giants and is the franchise’s all-time leading catching artist. He surpassed the legendary Lawrence Taylor with a mark of 141.5 during his career.

Strahan spent the last four seasons of his career playing with Eli Manning and they won Super Bowl 42 as teammates. They will likely remember that 17-14 win and the shocking surprise of the then-undefeated Patriots and share stories about their time together with the Giants.

Josh allen

Josh Allen is scheduled to appear in the third quarter of “Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli,” the Bills announced. Allen is in a relationship with the Mannings and has appeared at the Manning Passing Academy before.

“I have a good relationship with Peyton and Eli going back to the Manning Pass Academy,” Allen said last week, according to Bills.com . “And Archie texts me every now and then, which is really cool. It’s super surreal that he texts me and wishes me good luck and stuff. They’re the best football family. So yeah, yeah. they will ask, definitely follow. “

Allen may also have been hired to help analyze Patrick Mahomes’ performance. Allen and Mahomes are the two highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL and are often compared to each other. The Mannings will love hearing Allen’s thoughts on Mahomes in this one, especially as the Chiefs quarterback navigates a rough 3-4 start to the season.

Michael irvin

The last Manningcast guest of Week 8 will be former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin. The Hall of Famer now works as a studio analyst for the NFL Network and is a staple of their “NFL Gameday Morning” show on Sundays.

Irvin obviously has experience playing in the NFC East and has memories of many rivalry games against the Giants. He also shares the Hall of Fame link with Peyton Manning, so the host likely used that connection to get Irvin on the show.
