NEW YORK (AP) -- Peyton and Eli Manning have been voted to the Pro Bowl, the first time two quarterback-playing brothers have played in the same game.

Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts will play for the AFC, and his brother Eli of the New York Giants will play for the NFC. It will be Peyton Manning's ninth appearance in 11 seasons in the NFL's all-star game; Eli, the MVP in last season's Super Bowl, will be competing in his first.

Also on the NFC team: two Giants with a combined age of 86: the 44-year-old kicker John Carney and 42-year-old punter Jeff Feagles. Carney made the Pro Bowl with San Diego in 1994 and Feagles with Arizona in 1995.
