The Denver Broncos are fresh off a bye week and ready to take on the New York Giants in a prime-time matchup on Sunday Night Football in Week 6.
While there’ll be plenty of hype surrounding this game, even with the Giants sitting at 0-5 and dealing with significant injuries currently, there are two specific Broncos who have some added incentive on Sunday.
As Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post pointed out, both running back Jamaal Charles and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas could hit impressive milestones this weekend. For Charles, he’s just 87 scrimmage yards away from 10,000 in his career, while Thomas is 49 receiving yards from 8,000 in his career.
The potential milestone for Charles seems a bit tougher to hit, as the most total yards that he’s had in a game this season is 56, which came against the Dallas Cowboys. According to Pro Football Reference, Charles sits at No. 102 overall in total yards from scrimmage in NFL history.
As for Thomas, he’s managed to rack up more than 49 yards in three of four games this season, so his milestone seems well within reach.
The matchups for both players are somewhat beneficial to their chances, though. The Giants defense has allowed 224.8 passing yards per game this season while giving up an average of 139 yards per game on the ground.
