Earl Thomas (Seahawks)

If Manning does have a bad game, and I don’t know how much the Broncos will challenge Richard Sherman, I believe Earl Thomas could be a better version of Larry Brown from the ’90s in making the surprise plays.

I like watching Thomas play safety, and this could be his “moment” on the national stage. Also, he has five interceptions this season, along with two forced fumbles.
