PEYTON and ELI MANNING are in a new, somewhat graphic ad for DirecTV.  It's a fake promo spot for a TV drama called "Football Cops"... and instead of using guns, they kill criminals with deadly footballs.

It's not clear if there's more to come, but DirecTV is promoting it like there is.  On the official website, it even lists the back stories of the characters.

It says,

Both grew up together as orphans in a home for wayward boys.  Both overcame the odds to become huge sports stars.  Now both are the only hope for the rugged streets they once again call home.

Odds are, DirecTV is just planning to run mini-episodes leading up to the football season... if there is one.
