Video: There was a nod to Ray Lewis on 'SNL'

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning hosted “Saturday Night Live” on Saturday night, and since I have little social life to speak of, I happened to catch his performance. Despite mostly awful and unfunny writing, Manning was solid, though he didn’t come close to matching the laughs of his brother, Peyton, from a few years ago.

And since Manning is a famous, Super Bowl-winning quarterback, of course there were a couple of skits loosely related to the NFL. One skit was about Manning awkwardly posing for touchdown celebrations for the new “Madden” game, and actors played New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

Kenan Thompson -- whose finest role ever was Russ Tyler in "D2: The Mighty Ducks" -- played Lewis. And while his physique is the polar opposite to that of Lewis, his take on the Ray Lewis dance was pretty amusing.
