Gates will once again try to rediscover the success he had early in the season, this time in Denver. Last Sunday, he had four catches for 50 yards in a 37-14 win over the Giants. He was held scoreless for a fourth time in five games.
Without a 100-yard performance since Week 4, Gates is presently engaged in a timeshare with Ladarius Green. The second-year understudy did not have a catch in the win over New York. He did, however, showcase his playmaking skills in Weeks 12 and 13 when he put together back-to-back 80-yard performances. Gates must play well Thursday to maintain designation as a TE1.
