The Broncos' high-octane offense - which recorded the most ever points in NFL history - will go against the best defense in the league from the 2013 season when they meet at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
"I think all year I've been trying to avoid big shots," Thomas told reporters.
"That's just something you do as an offensive player, you don't want to let guys tattoo you when you're out there running with the football.
"On the line, that's a physical part of the field. All physicality is welcomed down there in that part of the trenches."
Thomas had 65 receptions for 788 yards along with 12 touchdowns in the regular season.
