With respect to Cris Carter, all Thomas does is catch touchdowns. Through five games, he has nine.

Over the last two seasons, a quarter of Thomas’ catches have given the Broncos six points.

Will this absurd trend continue on Sunday? Thomas poses a major match-up problem for the 49ers defense, especially with linebacker Patrick Willis out.

It’s another aspect of this game that makes it so fun. And one that Broncos Country should DVR to remember forever.
