Inside the huddle: ESPN’s Saturday on why Manning will shine as ESPYS host

Peyton Manning and Jeff Saturday were Indianapolis Colts teammates featured on a 2009 cover of ESPN The Magazine.

Next week, Peyton Manning will host The 25TH ESPYS on ABC (Wed., July 12 at 8 p.m. ET). The future Pro Football Hall of Famer and two-time Super Bowl champion is no stranger to performing on the field – and off. Manning has starred in many television commercials through the years and he was widely praised for his performance as a “Saturday Night Live” guest host in 2007.

ESPN NFL analyst Jeff Saturday knows Manning as well as anyone. They started 172 games together as teammates with the Indianapolis Colts, an NFL record for a center-quarterback duo. In the video above, Saturday gives Front Row a preview of what to expect from Manning as this year’s ESPYS host.

Jon McLeod and Bill Hofheimer produced the video.
