QB-PEYTON MANNING (on the last quarter of games)
"We have a tough stretch coming up and it doesn't get any tougher than going down to Jacksonville, another AFC South opponent. It's always tough at their place. They've always played well at home. We had a close game with them the first time. We made enough plays there at the end to win the game, but no question, it's going to be a tough game again this Sunday."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on if it's important to knock out the division title ASAP)
"The focus is to try to get a win. We need to have a good week of practice. We had an opportunity on Sunday to get a win, just didn't get it done. I think that's the main thing on guys' minds, is to get a win, get that winning taste back in our mouths and anything that comes along with that, we'll take. But the idea is to try to get a tough win on the road if we can this Sunday."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on if he feels the offense has to do more, do better)
"Everybody in this locker room just needs to try to control what they can control. Everybody needs to try to do their jobs better, from me all the way down the line. We need to improve this week as players and get better as a team and hopefully that results in better play on Sunday. That's what we're looking forward to right now."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on the offense hurting itself with penalties, etc.)
"We certainly had our share of mistakes. It's tough enough to get a first down in this league against good defenses and good athletes, but when you make mistakes and make it harder than it actually is, certainly it can be a challenge. We always try to be a good team penalty, discipline-wise and a team that protects the ball, and we can certainly do that a lot better offensively."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on WR-Marvin Harrison approaching 1,000 catches and if he has a favorite among them)
"I can't think of it off the top of my head. He's had all of them. I'm so used to seeing so many of the catches in practice that the public doesn't get to see. Marvin's been such a consistent player for so long, it's a real credit to his work ethic. That will be a great accomplishment for him."
QB-PEYTON MANNING (on WR-Marvin Harrison)
"Marvin has a great work ethic, and I think his goal is to be a better player every year than he was the year before…I appreciate his consistency.
