Eli Manning 'SNL' Promos: Giants Quarterback Shows Off Comedic Chops (VIDEO)

Eli Manning is hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend with musical guest Rihanna, and he has a unique challenge: To be funnier than his older brother Peyton, who hosted to rave reviews a few years ago. Based on the new promos released today featuring Jason Sudeikis and Kenan Thompson, the Giants quarterback may be up to the challenge.

In new promos for the episodes released by NBC, Manning shows a natural charisma when playing against "SNL" heavyweights like Jason Sudeikis and Kenan Thompson. And if you've ever wanted to see a gorgeous soprano voice emit from the mouth of the man who helped the Giants win the Super Bowl, this is for you.



CORRECTION: A headline elsewhere on the site misidentified the Manning who will appear on "SNL" as Peyton, rather than his brother Eli.
