Thanks to Peyton Manning, Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas had career statistical years. Decker had 85 receptions with 1,064 yards and 13 touchdowns while Thomas played his first injury-free season and recorded 94 catches for 1,434 yards and 10 TDs. Outside of football, the two guys have developed a budding friendship which has transformed into arguably one of the best nicknames for a duo ever.

Thomas is "thrilled" by "how a white teammate from the far north, Eric Decker, has become best friend to a black kid from Georgia," which has spawned the creation of their nickname: Black and Decker. Creative? Yes. Awesome? Definitely!
