However, it was Snoop Dogg that stole the show. He gifted Eli Manning a Death Row Records chain to celebrate his birthday. Manning was left speechless and couldn’t help but smile.

“I would like to present you this Death Row chain for being so hip-hop and being so hip,” Snoop Dogg said on the broadcast.

The fun moment was one of many during the night. Snoop Dogg also promoted his upcoming performance during the Super Bowl LVI halftime show. 

Peyton also brought out the family photos to show his brother some love. There were candid moments of a young Eli throughout the years.

This season, the ManningCast has provided some strong commentary during Monday Night Football games. The guests had some memorable insights over the regular season.
