BRONCOS WR DEMARYIUS THOMAS NAMED AFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the second time in his career, the NFL informed the Broncos on Wednesday.

Thomas caught eight passes for a franchise-record 226 yards (28.3 avg.) with two touchdowns in Denver’s 41-20 win against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

His 226 yards are the most by an NFL player this season and his performance represents just the fifth 200-yard receiving game by a Bronco in the regular season.

He hauled in scoring catches of 31 and 86 yards against the Cardinals with the latter representing the fourth-longest reception in Broncos history.

Including the postseason, Thomas has totaled two 200-yard receiving outputs during his career. In Denver’s 2011 AFC Wild Card Game against Pittsburgh, he registered 204 yards on four catches (51.0 avg.), including a game-winning 71-yard touchdown in overtime.

This marks the 55th time a Broncos player has taken home AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors since the award was initiated by the NFL in 1984. Thomas previously received the recognition in Week 10 last season (at S.D., 7-108, 3 TDs). He is the second Bronco to be named AFC Player of the Week this year, joining tight end Julius Thomas (Week 1).
