Football fans who are uncertain about how they'll handle Sundays if the NFL lockout reaches the regular season could have their answer.

Introducing "Football Cops," the DirecTV produced video series featuring brothers Eli and Peyton manning as two no-nonsense police officers who patrol the streets with their grid-iron brand of law enforcement.

Here's the DirecTV synopsis:

Mike Tahoe (Peyton Manning) was living the dream as a big league quarterback, until a personal tragedy brought him back to the mean streets of his childhood. Vowing to bring those who wronged him to swift justice, he enlists the help of his best friend, and biggest rival, C.J. Hunter (Eli Manning). Both grew up together as orphans in a home for wayward boys. Both overcame the odds to become huge sports stars. Now both are the only hope for the rugged streets they once again call home.

Even though the storyline says that the Football Cops were raised together as orphans, the show features Manning family patriarch Archie Manning as defense attorney Orlando Midnight. The show also includes Meghan Beard as Football Cops friend turned criminal and prostitute Candi LeTrelle, as well as Walker Hare playing informant Lenny Cruise.

Here's a look at the trailer.
