Just not in the actual game.
Instead, Manning, his favorite receiver Odell Beckham, and some of their New York Giants teammates laced up their dancing shoes to combine for the funniest commercial of the world’s biggest advertising event, drawing inspiration from the classic 1987 Patrick Swayze vehicle “Dirty Dancing.”
Odell and Eli had us rolling with this commercial 😂 pic.twitter.com/myJRQd7nXJ

Even those who can’t stand the Giants loved the spot, an advertisement for the league.

Eli/Odell commercial was phenomenal. Sad to admit

Eli and Odell win the commercial battle. It’s not even close. #SuperBowl

Ok, THAT commercial with Eli and Odell was the best one of the #SuperBowl

I never thought that seeing Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. dancing to “The Time of My Life” would be something that I needed in my life.
I was wrong.

Yep, Eli and Odell just won tonight.

I did not want to like the Eli/Odell Dirty Dancing ad but READER I DID

It’s a shame Eli’s offensive line can’t move like that in pass protection.
