Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is anything but complacent.
Despite the fact that Denver is riding a nine-game winning streak, and despite the fact that the Broncos are now in line to earn the No. 2 seed in the AFC, Manning is looking for new ways to "improve," as the Broncos are set to host the Cleveland Browns in Week 16.
Manning was asked how the team will keep its focus during the last two regular season games, but maintains that there is room for improvement -- even though Denver is facing inferior foes in both Week 16 and 17.
I still think we have things our entire team can improve on. You can learn something in each situation. That may be kind of the chatter and the talk on the outside, but inside, this is a good place to come in and get a road win in Baltimore. We have Cleveland next week. It's a home game and it'd be nice to keep our home winning streak alive.
Manning also told the media that the Broncos try to improve each and every week -- and that the goal is to play a perfect 60-minute game, but that Denver hasn't quite done that yet.
Well, that's our goal to try to get better every week. I feel like we probably do in some areas I think you're still looking to play at perfect 60-minute game. That's the goal every week. We did some good things today. I know there are some things we can do better.
If Denver wins each of its last two games, it will earn at least a first-round bye, with an outside chance of earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC. In order for Denver to clinch the top seed, the Broncos would need to defeat both Cleveland and Kansas City, while the Texans would need to lose each of their remaining games.
