Broncos' Von Miller, Aqib Talib get Pro Bowl nod; Chris Harris Jr. snubbed

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos had two players named to the Pro Bowl. Here’s a look at who was selected and who wasn’t selected:


Von Miller, LB, sixth Pro Bowl selection: Selected as a starter, Miller has spent much of the season trying to work around double- and triple-teams, but he quietly may have had one of his best all-around seasons. He has recorded at least 10 sacks for the fourth consecutive season -- the sixth time in his seven-year career -- and has been dominant at the point of attack in run defense.

Aqib Talib, CB, fifth Pro Bowl selection: Talib had his 10th career interception return for a touchdown in Week 2, when he went 103 yards for the score to seal a win over the Dallas Cowboys. Talib was at his best in man coverage, and quarterbacks routinely avoided him because of it. The only blip was a bobble or two in coverage against the Eagles, and he was suspended for a game because of his fight with Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree.


Chris Harris Jr., CB: Harris is a three-time Pro Bowl selection who should have added a fourth to his résumé this season. He is one of the league’s most unique players because of his ability to line up either in the slot or on the outside and play at an elite level in each of those areas. Harris has rarely been targeted this season, which is why he has just two interceptions. But few, if any, players are as consistently sound, including those selected to the Pro Bowl in front of him.
