The Manning Face is a facial expression displaying a mix of frustration and disgust. It is most often displayed by NFL quarterbacks Peyton Manning and his younger brother, Eli.

It was coined by one of Bill Simmons' reader in 2001 and was later defined by Malcolm Gladwell as "The look of someone who has just faced up to a sobering fact: I am in complete control of this offense. I prepare for games like no other quarterback in the NFL. I am in the best shape of my life. I have done everything I can to succeed — and I'm losing. Ohmigod. I'm not that good."
