Eli Manning's face just as his brother clinches the win.

It was the face seen round the world...

The face that inspired a thousand memes...

The face that did not look happy as his brother sealed the deal on his Super Bowl 50 win last Sunday.

 Inspiring meme's that said things like, "This is actually just a cardboard cutout of Eli he is at home doing laundry," and "When your brother brings home a better report card than you," it was about time Eli explained himself.

TMZ caught up with the Super Bowl Champ (in his own right), and his explanation was simple.

"I was focused on whether they were going for two, and knew the defense had to step up and make some stops."

He was thinking football. Duh.
