Michael Thomas was absolutely unguardable on Sunday afternoon.

The former Buckeye receiver hauled in a Saints' single-game record 16 catches for a career-high 180 yards and a touchdown in the season opening 48-40 loss to Tampa Bay.

Thomas is coming off a historic two-year start to his NFL career. The second round pick had what Football Outsiders called the best rookie season of any receiver since Randy Moss, and last season broke the NFL record for most receptions through two seasons.

Safe to say he's picking up right where he left off.
