Eli Manning swore he wasn't yelling "Trump, Trump" at the line of scrimmage as an  audible play call during the New York Giants game against the Los Angeles Rams in London on Sunday, but the Washington Post said it sure sounded like it.

At least on one occasion, it appeared Manning had called out the name of the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump before a play.

After the Giants 17-10 victory at Twickenham Stadium in London, the young Manning disavowed using Trump's name in the call, said the Post.

"No, no Trump call," he told reporters, stated the newspaper. "No Trump call. We had something very similar but no. No. It was not a Trump. So no, no audible this week."

His older brother Peyton Manning was known to use "Omaha" as an audible call while playing for the Denver Broncos.

CBS Sports reported in March that Peyton and Eli Manning both gave to Jeb Bush's failed presidential campaign. CBS Sports said then that Trump had received public support "in one form or another" from New England quarterback Tom Brady along with other sports stars like Dennis Rodman, Terrell Owens, John Rocker, Latrell Sprewell, Mike Tyson, and Herschel Walker.

Peyton Manning gave a humorous explanation of his "Omaha" audible before the 2014 AFC Championship game, calls that are commonly guarded secrets among offensive in football, noted USA Today.

"Omaha is a run play, but it could be a pass play or a play-action pass depending on a couple things: when, which way we're going, the quarter and the jerseys that we're wearing. So it varies, really, play to play. So, that's — there's your answer to that one," he said.
