A Peyton Manning doc that airs Sunday will focus on his record-breaking 2013 season, and also Eli eating potato chips too loudly

This weekend brings a behind-the-curtain look at Peyton Manning’s record-breaking 2013 season. A documentary series titled “The Timeline: Peyton Manning’s Summer School” will premiere on NBC at 9 p.m. Sunday.

It should shed some light on the work Manning put in for his second season with the Denver Broncos, when he set the NFL’s single-season record for passing yards (5,477) and touchdowns (55).

Here’s the trailer, which features Manning throwing to an often-shirtless Wes Welker and saying “yes, sir” in a very Southern accent as he watches tape with his college coach, David Cutcliffe.

Jokes aside, it looks pretty cool.

On Tuesday, the NFL tweeted out a clip of Manning scolding his younger brother Eli for eating what appears to be potato chips too loudly during a film session.

“You’re killing me with that crunching,” he says. Once I saw that, I knew I was all-in on the doc.
