5. Lucky No. 7

In the 2013 season opener, Thomas caught a bubble screen from Peyton Manning and took it 78 yards for a score. The touchdown was Manning's seventh of the game, which tied an NFL record.

4. Going up and getting it

Manning went deep on fourth-and-1 against the Lions in 2015, and Thomas rewarded his faith. The 6-foot-5 receiver jumped above Lions corner Darius Slay and then walked into the end zone untouched.

3. See that, KC?

In December of 2012, Thomas snagged a touchdown pass from Manning with one hand. Dave Logan, the Voice of the Broncos, called it the catch of the year.

2. Shocking the Steelers

The Broncos were the higher seed in this 29-23 win over the Steelers, but there's no doubt that this was among the more surprising victories in Denver's history. Thomas caught a short pass from Tim Tebow, shrugged off a few tackles and raced toward the end zone in overtime. The Broncos' home stadium was shaking by the time Thomas crossed the goal line.

1. Part of history

When Manning threw his 509th-career touchdown to break the NFL's all-time mark, Thomas was there on the receiving end. Thomas caught an 8-yard pass for the record breaker, and he later tacked on a 40-yard touchdown reception to add touchdown No. 510.
