Broncos’ offensive play of the week: move over, Shannon…

At the end of the third quarter, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas found himself in rare Broncos territory.

With the longest play from either team on the afternoon in the 23-0 blowout win, Thomas shot past Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe for second all-time in Broncos’ receiving yards (8,475), and he did so in 58 fewer games.

Not only was it a historic day for receiving yards for the veteran pass catcher, Thomas also past Sharpe in all-time touchdowns with 56 after first-quarter score; only the great Rod Smith has more yards and touchdowns in a Broncos’ uniform than the former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket.
