"Losing a football game, the key is how you respond to it," Manning said. "I've seen teams lose games and they don't recover from it. We are focused on trying to respond and play better. Can it be a good thing (to lose)? Yeah, if you respond.
"You'd like not to have to get slapped in the face to get refocused. You'd like to be focused every single week. If it happens, it's about trying not to repeat it, trying to improve and that's what we're trying to do."
Manning, by the way, is undefeated (8-0) in his career against teams that are 0-3 or worse.
On to Oakland, indeed.
