What a difference a year makes for Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. The Denver Broncos' two most productive receivers have significantly upped their yardage since last year's Tim Tebow-led season. They are preparing to play in the divisional round of the playoffs, and according to Rick Reilly, they have a sweet nickname.

Black and Decker.

The wideouts, who come from vastly different backgrounds, have become good friends, and gave themselves the moniker. Though giving yourself a nickname is against the rules of nicknames, they are allowed to slide by because it's a great nickname.

And with Peyton Manning passing to them, "Black and Decker" are having their best season yet. Thomas had 1,434 yards in the regular season, while Decker had 1,064. The Broncos finished the regular season ranked fifth in the league for passing yards per game, second among playoff teams.
