Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas did not let an injury stop him from hauling in 13 passes in a losing effort in Super Bowl 48 on Sunday.

It was reported Tuesday, that Thomas played through a separated shoulder against the Seattle Seahawks. The Broncos lost the game 43-8, but Thomas still had a big night individually, catching a Super Bowl record 13 passes for 118 yard and one touchdown. Still, all Thomas seemed to be focused on was that the Broncos got beat.

“We lost the Super Bowl,” said Thomas after the game. “And that’s all I’m gonna worry about right now.”

All though they failed to put up much of anything in terms of points, the Broncos offense did move the ball effectively between the times they turned it over. Peyton Manning also set the Super Bowl record for completions, with 34.

For his part, Thomas said the record may mean something to him eventually.

“Of course,” said the 26-year-old receiver. “But at the same time, I will always know in the back of my mind that we didn’t win the game.”

“I feel for my fans, Broncos Country and of course, my teammates. To lose a game like this in the Super Bowl…it’s tough.”
