In this week's conversation with Dave Logan, Manning also talked about the offense's strides in the win against Detroit and how they're preparing for the Vikings defense.

"What you see on film is impressive," Manning said. "When you watch their defense – they're active, they play real hard. They do a good job of communicating, which I think is impressive."
