Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning put Omaha in the spotlight during the NFL playoffs with his frequent shouts at the line of scrimmage. But his younger brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, claims Peyton wasn't the first in the family to call attention to Nebraska's largest city.

"I think he stole it. It's a word we've used a lot. I think it means a similar thing there in Denver. It's okay we're always trying to help each other out. I've taken some plays and some tips from Peyton over the years," Eli told HuffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill on Wednesday.

When asked why he shouts "Omaha" instead of the name of a city like Los Angeles, Eli said "it's just one of those words that rolls off the tongue."
