The Super Bowl field will be narrowed to two on Sunday. At halftime of the AFC title game, the NFC announced that the field for the Walter Payton Man of the Year award has been cut to three.

The finalists are 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin, Saints tight end Benjamin Watson, and Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

The prize, named for the Hall of Fame running back who died in 1999, acknowledges off-field contributions to the community. Each team had one nominee.

The winner will be announced the night before the Super Bowl.

    The whole Browns team should have been nominated just for having to show up for work.
    Talk about a charity case.

    Congrats to all the finalists!

    Kinda surprised Eli hasn’t won it yet. Guiding Eyes, March of Dimes, Tackling Kids Cancer, Hackensack and Mississippi hospitals, Robin Hood foundation, Play 60– he’s done a ton of stuff since he came into the league. Would be nice to see him win.

    Vontaze Burfict will be wondering why he wasn’t selected.

    Boldin has no business in there. I’ve seen him be a disrespectful jerk.
