HOBOKEN, N.J., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said visiting New Jersey for the Super Bowl also allowed him to meet his niece for the first time.

Manning was able to spend Tuesday evening with his brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, at Eli's home in Hoboken, NJ.com reported Thursday.

"I had a chance to see Eli last night," Manning said Wednesday. "I got to visit with him and his family. He and I don't get to spend a lot of time together in person. He came to the game two weeks ago against the Patriots. That's one of four or five NFL games of mine that he has been to in person [during Peyton's 16-year career]. It's always special to have a chance to be with him."

Manning said he was able to meet his niece, Lucy, who was born in June.

"I met his second daughter for the first time; Lucy, my niece. She was born right before training camp. I had never met her. I enjoyed that time as an uncle last night," he said.

Manning and the Broncos are in New Jersey preparing for Sunday's Super Bowl game against the Seattle Seahawks.
