Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs IND (8 / 7 / 104 / 3 rec)

For the second straight season, Julius Thomas exploded out of the gates with a 100-yard, multiple-touchdown game on national television to start the season. Thomas dominated everyone in the middle of Indianapolis' defense, scoring touchdowns against safety LaRon Landry and inside linebackers D'Qwell Jackson and Jerrell Freeman as none had the speed to keep up with him or bring him down after the catch. The lone pass in Thomas' direction to fall incomplete was an intermediate throw on 2nd-and-10 that glanced just off of his fingertips, but Thomas made up for it by converting 3rd-and-10 on the next play. There were only two real blemishes on an otherwise dominant performance. The first was a fumble after an impressive catch-and-run, but the ball took a very fortunate bounce and wound up back in Denver's hands for a first down, anyway. The second was an onside kick from the Colts that Thomas got his hands on but failed to secure, leading to an Indianapolis recovery.

2014 Week 2 vs KC (5 / 4 / 39 / 1 rec)

Against the Kansas City Chiefs, Julius Thomas had the opportunity to move around the formation a bit more than usual. Instead of mostly going over the middle, Thomas' targets came from all over the field, including one where he motioned into the backfield before the snap. Thomas also had a pair of targets on the outside, with one overthrown on a short 3rd down pass that had no hope of converting anyway, and the other resulting in a fade pass for a touchdown to open the game.

2014 Week 3 vs SEA (4 / 3 / 17 / 1 rec)

With Seattle sporting an impressive pair of safeties, Denver's game plan did not feature Julius Thomas as much as usual. All four of Julius' targets were close to the line of scrimmage. Julius came up with a nice conversion on 3rd down early, and had a potential touchdown reception that was just a bit low and away. Otherwise, he had a quiet day until Denver ran a deceptive shovel pass for a touchdown late in the game.
