Any time Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas has a game with fewer than 50 yards receiving -- and it hasn't happened all that often with Peyton Manning at quarterback -- the next week is routinely a big day. Thomas had 48 yards receiving in the opener. Over the past two seasons combined, Thomas has been held to under 50 yards receiving in six games. Five times Thomas has followed that with a 100-yard day in his next game and scored a touchdown in four of those games. You'd have to have a pretty stacked receiving corps to even consider sitting Thomas, but this week is definitely not the week for it.
So Thomas has gained 100-plus yards in five of six games after being held under 50 yards. What about the other game? He posted 4-82-1 against the Chiefs in 2012 after a 3-42-1 line the week before.
