7. player. 45. <p>There isn’t a quarterback out there who likes his top wideout more than Peyton Manning likes Demaryius Thomas. If Manning remains a top-five passer in 2015, it will be a result of another great season out of Thomas.</p> <p>You may have seen Shane Ray make a really nice pass deflection after blowing by his blocker on the edge (he also recorded a half sack against the Texans). It’s that kind of power and speed that made the Broncos swoon and draft Ray this spring.</p>. AFC West. Last week: 8. Denver Broncos

Next: 6. Baltimore Ravens
