DENVER BRONCOS OLB VON MILLER NAMED AFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week for his performance in Denver’s 34-20 win against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, the NFL informed the Broncos on Wednesday.
       
The award represents the third conference recognition of his career (Wk. 11 – 2011; Wk. 11 – 2012), tying Broncos Ring of Fame linebacker Karl Mecklenburg for the most AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in team history since the award was initiated by the NFL in 1984.
       
Miller tied a career high with three sacks (20 yds.) to go along with seven tackles, one pass defensed and one forced fumble against the Colts. He became just the fifth player in the last six seasons to achieve all of those defensive totals in a single game.
       
His strip-sack of Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck with 1:51 remaining in the fourth quarter was recovered by teammate Shane Ray and returned for a touchdown to seal the win for Denver.
       
Miller’s three sacks led all NFL players in Week 2 and moved him into a tie with Trevor Pryce for the sixth-most career sacks (64) in Broncos history.
