Peyton and Eli Manning welcomed Colorado head coach and NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders to the ManningCast for Monday’s playoff game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Dallas Cowboys.

Sanders arrived early in the first quarter with both teams still figuring out their offenses for the game.

The first four possessions of the game were all three-and-outs. Both teams combined for 12 plays and -2 yards over those first four possessions.

Tom Brady was 1-for-4 for two yards and Dak Prescott was 0-for-3 with a sack.

After the fourth possession, Sanders asked the Manning brothers if they could explain what was going on the field.

“Both quarterbacks, what’s going on right now?” Sanders said. “Have any of these guys completed a pass?”

“It’s a defensive game,” Peyton Manning said. “We brought you on to talk offense and it’s all defense so far.”

On the next possession after Sanders’ quip, the Cowboys went down the field and scored a touchdown. Prescott found tight end Dalton Schultz on a 22-yard seam pass across the middle of the field.
