Note: This content is subject to ESPN’s restrictions and terms of use.

Former NFL quarterback Archie Manning had a tough decision to make before the Nov. 28 Monday Night Football game between the New York Giants and the New Orleans Saints.

On the one hand, he’s lived in New Orleans for more than 40 years, was the Saints QB for 10 years from 1971-1981 and has been loyal to the team ever since.

On the other hand Manning’s son, Eli, is the Giants’ quarterback.

This MNF opening frames his dilemma.

The production was taped in the historic Latter Library in New Orleans.
