Broncos’ ‘Four Horsemen’ Continue Record Pace


The Broncos have the best weaponry in the NFL. Flat out.

When you talk about elite receiver groups, they barely come close to the crew the Broncos have on the field every Sunday. It’s almost silly, and it’s truly incredible to watch. We’re monitoring what has been called the “Four Horsemen” which consists of Eric Decker, Julius Thomas, Wes Welker, and Demaryius Thomas.

Those four guys are all extremely talented players, all on pace for big seasons with over 1,000 yards receiving each. Here are their numbers so far this season.

Player Targets Catches Yards AVG YAC TD INT Drop Drop %
D. Thomas 47 37 528 14.3 294 4 0 2 4.3
Decker 49 34 477 14.0 183 2 1 7 14.3
Welker 50 37 378 10.2 176 8 1 4 8.0
J. Thomas 43 31 381 12.3 198 7 0 3 6.8

There you have the numerical evidence of the dominance displayed by Denver’s elite receiver group, which just got even better this week by adding Tavarres King to the active roster. If the Broncos activate King for games, they could use him occasionally as another vertical threat. That might not happen, though.

For now, enjoy the ride fellow fans. This is an incredible group to watch.
