HIGH­LIGHT Once again, Miller is the X fac­tor

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

jack­sonville, fla.» How good is Bron­cos out­side line­backer Von Miller?

So good that his av­er­age game would be draw­ing rave re­views if he were any­one else. Take Miller’s play in the Bron­cos’ 20-10 vic­tory over the Jack­sonville Jaguars on Sun­day.

Miller was of­fi­cially cred­ited with three tack­les and two quar­ter­back hits. In reality, his play was di­rectly re­spon­si­ble for the 10-point win­ning mar­gin.

In the third quar­ter, with Den­ver lead­ing 10-3, Miller shoved an of­fen­sive line­man into Jack­sonville quar­ter­back Blake Bor­tles, who de­liv­ered a wounded duck toss in­tended for Allen Robin­son. Bron­cos cor­ner­back Bradley Roby said thank you and took the ball 51 yards for a touch­down and a 17-3 lead.

Then, with Jack­sonville down 17-10 late, Miller again shoved a line­man into Bor­tles, who fum­bled. Line­backer Shane Ray re­cov­ered. Game over. The Den­ver Post
