HIGHLIGHT Once again, Miller is the X factor
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
