DENVER — Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has consistently said he believes the most important part of his job would be”getting sacks and making game-changing plays,” and he’s now achieved that more than every other player in franchise history.
When Miller launched himself through the Cleveland Browns‘ offensive line on the previous play of the third quarter Saturday night and hauled quarterback Baker Mayfield to the bottom, he’d his 98th career bag.
Miller passed Broncos group of Famer Simon Fletcher, who finished his career with all 97.5 sacks.
The play came at an opportune time for the Broncos, since the Browns had driven into Denver land against a Broncos defense depleted at cornerback by accident and Jamar Taylor‘s ejection. The sofa also gave Miller 14.5 for this growing season, the second-highest single-season total of the livelihood.
His profession is 18.5 at 2012.
Miller was asked when he believes about awards and records later on.
“I really don’t really,” he said. “Honestly, I don’t. Finished about getting sacks is really close right now. I am three sacks away from [Rams defensive tackle] Aaron Donald, and the next guy behind me is only a bag away. It’s really a tight race and that the gap could be meant by every sofa. That’s where my mindset is at right now.”
The Browns beat the Broncos 17-16.
