Broncos Thomas, Woodyard don't get Pro Bowl call

By  | 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- If it's true that most players earn trips to the Pro Bowl for what they did the year before, then Demaryius Thomas and Wesley Woodyard of the Broncos should start making plans to be there in 2014.

The Denver receiver, with 1,312 yards and nine touchdowns, and linebacker, who leads the team with 110 tackles, were among the most surprising omissions from the AFC team announced Wednesday.

Another surprise: The Broncos, with their 13-2 record, placed five players on the roster -- Peyton Manning, Champ Bailey, Ryan Clady, Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil -- same number as their opponent Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs, who are 2-13.
