He has completed just 56 of 94 passes. In that span, Manning has thrown six touchdowns and three interceptions.Is it a slump? Perhaps a downslide for a 35-year-old veteran?Manning would hear none of that Tuesday, two days after his team used a devastating defense and a clutch 61-yard touchdown pass from Manning to Odell Beckham, Jr. for a 10-7 victory over Dallas.I know I can make plays, Manning said Tuesday. I know I can get hot. I have to keep working. Im confident that I can go out there and have a big game.Manning said he has not been at his best in the past three games.

We can have a great game plan and then make the plays that are there.Manning was asked if he was under duress because of the struggles of the offensive line.Theyre hanging in there, Manning said. Theyre tough. Theyre going to give us the opportunity to make plays as long as I make great decisions.I think offensively we can get things going.
