Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning might be known best as the wise-cracking, dad-joke-slinging TV personality in today’s world – especially for the newer generation. After retiring from football nearly 10 years ago following a Super Bowl victory in the 2015 season, Manning has been one of the most popular TV hosts from the sports world with an Emmy-winning Monday night broadcast, a hit television show on ESPN+ that has spiraled into several other sports, Saturday Night Live appearances, and much more.

So it was only fitting that the former Tennessee Volunteer showed up at The Roast of Tom Brady (hosted by Netflix) on Sunday night.

The football world gathered for The Roast of Tom Brady, with former teammates and coaches such as Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, and Bill Belichick showing up and getting in on the fun. The surprise of the night came at the end, though, when longtime rival Peyton Manning showed up to crack a few jokes.

“It is great to be with a bunch of people, sitting around, talking smack about Tom Brady,” Manning said. “Or as we call that in the Manning family, Thanksgiving.”

Manning continued with the introduction jokes, feeling out the crowd who clearly was giving a warm reception.

“True story,” Manning previewed. “After spending several Thanksgivings with my parents, my kids now excuse themselves to use the bathroom by saying, ‘I have to go take a Brady.'”

Manning later addressed the elephant in the room, acknowledging Brady’s lead in Super Bowl trophies over his own. But the former Vol and Hall of Famer also acknowledged a few more things that Brady has more on.

“Of course, we all know Tom has five more Super Bowl rings than I do,” Manning said on stage. “He also has more touchdowns than I do. More passing yards. More retirements. More fake hair. More TB12 bankruptcies.”

While Brady would get a rebuttal on the former Indianapolis and Denver quarterback, Manning got in one last shot before Brady took the stage.

“He is a three-time Super Bowl loser,” Manning said. “Please welcome, Tom Brady.”

Brady didn’t go quietly into the night, as expected. Brady hit a pinpoint strike on Manning, pointing to what the people of Knoxville, Indianapolis, and Denver have counter-argued for years:

“Peyton, sometimes you live in Denver, sometimes you live in Louisiana, but you’ll always live in my shadow,” said Brady.
