10 #ProJackets saw action during week 6 of the 2014 NFL season. A week after setting the Broncos’ franchise record for single-game receiving yards, Demaryius Thomas posted 10 catches for 124 yards and a touchdown in a Denver road win. New York Jets strong safety Dawan Landry registered a season-high 13 tackles in a loss to the Broncos. Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson missed his first game of the season; Megatron is battling a high ankle sprain and his return to the Lions lineup is unknown.
