Week 3: at Buffalo Bills
FBG says: Tough matchup. Trevor Siemian and the Broncos passing offense absolutely decimated a struggling Cowboys secondary last week. Siemian tied his career high with four touchdowns last week, completing nearly 70% of his passes for 231 yards. The combination of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders led the way for Broncos receivers, each garnering eight targets and six receptions with Thomas leading in yardage with 71 but Sanders leading in touchdowns with two big scores. Thomas has yet to find the end zone this season, despite leading the Broncos in receiving yards each of the first two weeks. C.J. Anderson also got involved in the passing game here, hauling in three balls for 36 yards and a touchdown. The Bills pass defense is a solid unit off to a great start this season. Their pass-rush looked particularly fierce last week with consistent pressure applied to Cam Newton, resulting in six sacks on the day. Edge rusher Jerry Hughes was particularly effective, finishing with two sacks and four quarterback hurries in what was a tough matchup against former Pro Bowl left tackle Matt Kalil. Safety Jordan Poyer has been outstanding so far this season, contributing to the Bills allowing only two pass plays of 20 or more yards last week while racking up seven tackles, a sack, and three passes defended. With Denver missing left tackle Garrett Boles this week, a key piece of their offensive line, they may struggle to protect Siemian as he tries to find an opening against the hot Bills secondary.

Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 2 vs DAL (8 / 6 / 71 / 0 rec)
Thomas got right to work on Denver's first drive, catching a quick slant for a short gain, then turning another curl into a big catch and run down the right sideline for a gain of 27, his longest of the day. Thomas looked sharp all day, working the short and intermediate game with slants, curls, and out routes. He was the intended target on a deep post when Siemian threw his 3rd quarter interception. It is unclear who miscommunicated on the play. Thomas was only targeted downfield the once, but this is hopefully just playcalling designed to deal with the wet, rainy conditions. We'll see if he gets to stretch the field a little more in week 3. Thomas tied with Sanders for most targets(8) and catches (6. Thomas had a slight edge in yards, but Sanders got the touchdowns this week.
2017 Week 1 vs LAC (8 / 5 / 67 / 0 rec)
Thomas missed several practices since injuring his groin in week 3 of the preseason, but the injury didn't appear to slow him any after resuming practice Wednesday in full. DT had a diving catch for a 11 yards on an out route in the 1st quarter. He let a good pass glance off his hands on a quick slant in the 3rd quarter, but Siemian went right back to him on the next play for a big gain on an over-the-shoulder catch down the right sideline. Thomas hauled in an out route for a 12 yard gain midway through the 3rd quarter. Though he did not find the end zone, DT finished the night with the team-high target, catch, and yardage totals.
