As he prepares for New England, Peyton Manning took some time to talk about the progress the offense is making. Manning has been up and down but with a quarter of the season in the books, Manning knows this is the time to get better.

Manning joined KOA in Denver on The Dave Logan Show:

“What we did was we played good situational football, which Coach Fox discusses all the time. Good on third down, good on red zone, forcing a special teams turnover. Those are the type of things that we absolutely have to do in order to have a chance against the Patriots, because they are so good at situational football, playing 60-minute football. I think the key is looking for some kind of consistency. … We’ve got to do it every single week, so it’ll be key, building off of that game last Sunday against Oakland.”

“I really think it just starts with practice. There’s no secret answer. I think it’s easy, when you lose a game, to sort of refocus. You walk around with a little more of a chip on your shoulder, a sense of urgency. The key, I think, to being a consistent team and being a successful team, is to have that same chip and sense of urgency — kind of an edge if you will — when you’ve won a game. It’s a big win against Oakland, a division game, everybody’s excited. But you’ve got to come in Monday and Tuesday still sort of determined that, ‘I’ve got to have an even better week of practice this week.’”
