But Peyton clearly is the Manning with the most in 2010. And it’s not even close.

When told of his sibling’s sizzling numbers, Eli smiled and said, “That’s all new to me. You’re telling me numbers I haven’t even seen.”

Peyton is very likely to keep his surge going at Jacksonville.

He’s had eight of his 59 career 300-yard games against the Jaguars, six of his 62 three-TD games, and four of his 43 career fourth-quarter comebacks against them. He’s 13-4 against the Jags.

“It’s still so game-to-game, and every game kind of takes on its own personality,” he said. “In Houston, there was a lot more throwing than we wanted. The Giants game, the running game was so efficient, it really opened things up … and then last week was kind of a different game at Denver. So we’ve already had three different personalities in three games.”

And two different personalities in the family. Peyton’s had the well-earned swagger, while Eli at times has looked confused as well as besieged.

They chat each week on the phone and root for each other’s teams, except on those every-four-year occasions when they face off. Might be time for a pep talk from big brother.
