Decker caught eight passes for 174 yards (21.8 avg.) and a franchise-record four touchdowns in Denver’s 35-28 win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. His three second-half scores helped the Broncos overcome an early 14-point deficit to capture their 10th consecutive win in divisional play.
His four receiving touchdowns equaled the most by a player in the NFL this season (Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones vs. NYJ, 10/27/13) and represented the highest total in a road game in more than six years (Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss at Buf., 11/18/07). Decker’s performance also marked just the 12 time in NFL history a player has totaled at least 170 receiving yards and four touchdowns in a single game.
Decker’s accomplishment represents the fourth Offensive Player of the Week recognition for a Bronco this season (Peyton Manning, Weeks 1 & 3; Demaryius Thomas, Week 10) and the 52nd in team history since the award was initiated in 1984.
