Eli Manning is a Up for Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award

The winner of the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award will be revealed on Feb. 6.

While Eli Manning's brother Peyton Manning has a chance to win Super Bowl 50, the Giants quarterback is up for a Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award.

The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizes an NFL player for his excellence on and off the field. The award was established in 1970. It was renamed in 1999 after the late Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton. Each team nominates one player who has had a significant positive impact on his community.

The finalists this year include besides New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin, and New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson. 

The winner will be announced during NFL Honors, a two-hour primetime special airing nationally on Feb. 6, the night before Super Bowl 50, from 9-11 pm ET on CBS.

The winner will receive a $55,000 donation in his name to a charity of his choice and the two runners-up will receive an $11,000 donation. The other 29 team finalists received a $5,000 donation. Donations are courtesy of the NFL Foundation and Nationwide.

The NFL Honors show airs on the day before of Super Bowl 50. Super Bowl 50 will take place on February 7, 2016, in Santa Clara, at the Levi's Stadium. The stadium is the home of the home of the San Francisco 49ers.

Super Bowl 50 will be topping all previous Super Bowl's because of the anniversary. Marketers are flocking to Super Bowl 50 and it will be a huge TV event. Read our Super Bowl 50 Facts to learn everything important about Super Bowl 50.
