Peyton Manning gets the ‘Godfather’ treatment in Eagles’ hype video

So, this is ... interesting. The Philadelphia Eagles have whipped up this pregame hype video for Sunday's much-anticipated throwdown against the Denver Broncos. And when you're talking about Peyton Manning, there's plenty of material ripe for goofery. Throw in a dash of the Tooth Fairy and a messy "Godfather" reference, and you've got this little charmer.

The Broncos are 10-point favorites, so Philadelphia's going to need all the help it can get. And, hey, if that means long snapper John Dorenbos slathering Manning's bed in Eagle-green paint, well, so be it. Then again, careful making Peyton mad, Philadelphia. He's got a passing offense you can't refuse.
