There’s going to be a special guest on tonight’s edition of Manningcast on ESPN2.
Josh Allen will be interviewed during the third quarter of tonight’s Kansas City Chiefs vs. New York Giants game.
Peyton and Eli Manning commentate on the Monday Night Football games on select weeks on ESPN2. The feed is also available on the ESPN app.
Allen’s relationship with the Mannings began in 2017 when he attending the family’s passing academy. Last week, Allen talked about his admiration for the family and revealed that he often receives ‘good luck’ messages from the Manning family patriarch Archie before Bills games. “I do have a good relationship with Peyton and Eli going back to the Manning Passing Academy, said Allen last week. “And Archie texts me once in a while, which is really cool. It’s super surreal that he texts me and wishes me good luck and stuff. They’re the ultimate football family. So yeah, if they asked me, I’d definitely go on.”
