Thomas back in Taylor's head
By Bill Williamson
DENVER -- Demaryius Thomas and Ike Taylor have met again.
The two will forever be linked because of a memorable playoff finish last year.
They rekindled their relationship Sunday night. Thomas made a nice 20-yard catch over Taylor in Pittsburgh territory midway through the second quarter. It was a key play on a drive Denver took a 7-3 lead on. After the catch, Thomas jumped up and got in Taylor’s face.
I, of course, wasn’t privy to the chat, but I bet it went something like this: Remember me?
Taylor and the Steelers were suddenly sent home last January when Thomas burnt Taylor on a 80-yard scoring strike form former Denver quarterback Tim Tebow on the first offensive play in overtime in a wild-card playoff game.
Taylor has had to relive the moment countless times. I’m sure he may be thinking about it again.
