Thomas provided proof of that fact by breaking a prestigious franchise record on Sunday.
With his 101 consecutive start, the veteran safety passed Seahawks legend Cortez Kennedy for most consecutive starts in the regular season. Thomas has yet to miss a game of action in seven seasons since being drafted in the first round out of Texas in 2010.
But, it's no customary honor; Thomas has earned each of his starts and did so again on Sunday. Not only did he provide his offense with the ball down two points in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter with a crucial interception of Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan, he had a crucial pass deflection on second down on the Falcons final offensive drive.
Thomas finished the game with four tackles, three passes defended and an interception.
