Photo of Eli Manning and Daniel Jones sets the internet ablaze

The idea of No. 6 overall draft pick Daniel Jones becoming the next Eli Manning just got a lot more real. 

Manning and his older brother, Peyton, are both two-time Super Bowl champions. Despite their long and largely successful careers, the siblings share a particularly forlorn facial expression that fans have somewhat-lovingly dubbed "Manning Face."

Since Peyton's retirement from the NFL in 2016, it's been up to Eli alone to carry on the Manning Face legend – until now. 

A photograph taken by Danielle Parhizkaran at the New York Giants' offseason workouts on Monday began making the rounds on Twitter after fans noticed an uncanny resemblance between Manning and the newly drafted Jones. 


Et tu, Manning Face?

Jones isn't a Manning by blood, but you'd be hard-pressed to convince a casual fan that Manning and Jones aren't somehow related, or possibly even carbon copies of one another. 

Naturally, the Twitterverse was ripe with reactions to the photo: 

Manning and Jones haven't worked together for long, but it's clear the elder quarterback has already made an impact — just maybe not how Giants fans would have hoped.
