Demaryius Thomas’ performance in his NFL debut helped earn the Broncos win their 11th straight regular season home opener.
Now Broncos fans can vote to help him earn two weekly honors.
The Broncos’ top pick in the 2010 draft finished with eight catches for 98 yards and a touchdown in the team’s 31-14 win over the Seahawks. Thomas just missed tying teammate Eddie Royal’s team record for most catches in his first NFL game.
Thomas continues the Broncos’ impressive association with the award. Running back Knowshon Moreno earned the honor an NFL-best four times last season.
The other nominees this week are Lions running back Jahvid Best, Steelers kick returner Antonio Brown, Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams.
Thomas is also up for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of Week 2. Voting for this honor also ends on Friday at 10 a.m. MDT. The winner will be announced Friday during NFL Network’s Around the League show and then posted on NFL.com.
The other nominees for this honor are the Miami Dolphins’ defensive performance in a win at Minnesota and the Houston Texans’ rally to win at Washington in overtime.
