Peyton Manning and Eli Manning‘s ESPN2 broadcast of Monday Night Football, dubbed the ManningCast, was a huge hit on social media, and a nominal hit in the ratings. Now, the brothers are back for one more telecast as they’ll cover their first playoff game tonight between the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams.

The show will welcome three guests onto the broadcast this evening, Cardinals legend Larry Fitzgerald, Seattle Seahawks quarterback (for now) Russell Wilson, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

The good news for Wilson is that the ManningCast Curse won’t apply to him this time, at least until the Seahawks (or whoever he’s playing for) loses their first game next season. Wilson was previously a guest on the broadcast and Seattle lost their next game, as the curse foretold.

Hopefully, the brothers will be able to suss out some information from Wilson, who reportedly wants to explore his options despite saying he’d like to remain with the Seahawks and has a no-trade clause. Considering Pete Carroll is sticking around, there certainly seems to be some untapped intel that could be leaked.

All three guests should bring something interesting to the discussion, but NFL folks on social media have already been sharing their thoughts about their appearances and what might go down. A lot of people specifically wondered if Peyton, who has been rumored to be in the running to be an owner of the Denver Broncos, will use the opportunity to pitch Wilson on coming on over (sneakily, of course).

Tune into the ManningCast on ESPN2 at 8:13 p.m. EST tonight for the Rams-Cardinals playoff game.
