Demaryius Thomas joined Emmanuel Sanders and Rod Mackey on the Broncos Huddle Wednesday night on 9NEWS. "Thunder" and "Lightning", as the dynamic duo call themselves, discussed several topics including an event in the Texans game that sparked the offensive explosion (watch the video to learn more).
The two Broncos wide receivers remain Trevor's main targets, 1A and 1B if you will. No one else on the team is even close to those two when it comes to catches. Sanders leads the team with 40, 3 more than DT. Thomas however has one more touchdown than Sanders does, 4 to 3, after scoring against the Texans on Monday night. The two have also combined for nearly 1000 yards receiving with Sanders holding the slight edge in that category.
Both Sanders and Thomas are both awfully excited about the fact that they didn't have to put the offense on their back against Houston. After being AWOL for the past four games, the running game showed up in a big way. The Broncos running backs rushed for 190 yards.
“We started running the football really well. C.J. Anderson started toting it. Booker came in and started toting it. The offensive line started toting it. I just remember talking to the offensive line and telling them, ‘hey look, we are in a bar fight right now and we have to go to war.’ That was a physical game. I have all types of cuts on my legs and my arms. That was a physical game, but that’s the type of ball that we play. That’s Broncos football.”
"We got the running game started, and that’s where we’ve got to start as an offense. We’ve got to get our running game started and stuff starts to open up for the passes," Thomas said.
The Broncos Huddle airs every Wednesday night on 9NEWS at 6:30 p.m. and again on Channel 20 at 10:30 p.m
