Late Bronco WR Demaryius Thomas honored by Denver Broncos in dominating home win over Detroit Lions

Steven Bonifazi

The Denver Broncos dominated Sunday at Empower Field, claiming a 38-10 win over the Detroit Lions after honoring former wide receiver Demaryius Thomas who was found deceased last Thursday in his home in Roswell, Ga.

Thomas' No. 88 could be found in every corner of Empower Field Sunday on signs, jerseys and a memorial outside the stadium, with the Broncos final 14-play touchdown drive going 88 yards. ESPN reports that in the fourth quarter, Broncos safety Justin Simmons picked a pass from Lions quarterback Jared Goff and instantly placed the ball in the middle of the painted No. 88 on the Broncos sideline at the 10-yard line.
