Even though many New York Giants' fans are skeptical Daniel Jones will play like Eli Manning, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft sure does like look him.

In fact, the New York faithful's real dilemma might prove telling the two Giants' quarterbacks apart.

Like the caption says, "No, it is not photoshopped." Jones could be Eli's brother, his doppelgänger, and is truly a look-alike for the man he's likely to succeed as the Giants' QB. The resemblance the two share is arguably a greater one than Eli has to his brother, future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning.

Eli and Jones also share an identical build, with Manning standing 6' 5", 221 pounds and Jones having the exact same measureables at the 2019 NFL Draft Combine.

The ties between Jones and the Mannings are well known, most notably intertwined through former Ole Miss (Eli's alma mater) and current Duke football head coach David Cutcliffe. But this takes their parallels to an entirely different level.

Facial likeness aside, it's safe to say that Giants' fans should be more concerned with the kind of resemblance Jones shares to Eli's play on the field over the way the two look on it.
