NFL honors Broncos LB Von Miller

Von Miller is on a roll and the NFL is noticing.

The Denver second-year linebacker was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. Miller dominated in a 30-23 win over San Diego on Sunday.

He had three sacks and he forced two fumbles in the game. His three sacks in one game tied a career high for the No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 draft. His two forced fumbles were a career high. Miller has 13 sacks this season, which is second in the NFL behind San Francisco’s Aldon Smith. He has 15 sacks.

Miller debuts on Mike Sando’s MVP Watch this week. He is No. 9. Denver quarterback Peyton Manning remains No. 1 on the list.
