Juwan Thompson Has One Of His Best Games Of The Season In A Losing Cause

Juwan Thompson runs away from the Raiders

DENVER – Juwan Thompson snatched four passes for 21 yards off of six targets and added eight yards on the ground on five carries in the Broncos 15-12 loss to Oakland on Sunday.

Denver (10-3) failed to hold onto a 12-0 halftime lead or several on-target throws from Osweiler, including two big drops by Demaryius Thomas, one for a touchdown and another for a late first down.

St. Croix’s Thompson has nine touches in each of his past two games, by far his biggest workloads of the season.

Thompson’s looks have come due to C.J. Anderson being sidelined with an ankle injury and he hasn’t done too much with them, averaging seven yards per catch and 2.7 yards per carry.

Anderson suited up as the emergency back on Sunday and appears to be on pace to re-emerge and take carries away from Thompson in the coming weeks.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
