MNF Open: Archie Manning

Archie Manning stars in the next Monday Night Football open.

Former New Orleans Saints quarterback Archie Manning is participating in the new Monday Night Football open that was shot today in New Orleans.

The photo above is a sneak preview of the shoot, captured in the historic Latter Library in New Orleans, that will debut before the Saints play host to the New York Giants (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN).

We won’t give too much away, but it seems Archie faces a dilemma: Does he root for the hometown team that he played for and has always been loyal to, or does he root for quarterback son Eli and the visiting Giants?

There’s also a musical element involved.

The Manning family has worked with ESPN numerous times, most notably in this classic “This Is SportsCenter” ad from a few years ago.
