The NFL lockout has left many players with a lot of free time on their hands. Peyton and Eli Manning are making the best of their time off by starring in 'Football Cops,' a DirecTV ad spoofing buddy cop shows.

In the clip, former football stars Mike Tahoe (Peyton) and CJ Hunter (Eli) return to the town where they grew up as orphans, determined to clean up the mean streets. These two fight crime the only way they know how: Instead of using guns or tasers, a football cop's weapon of choice is ... a football.
