Of course “Strip Sack Miller” will make this list. He is easily the most important piece on the Denver Broncos. No other defender, or player, has shown they can take over a game like he has in their last three games.
With the Bengals inconsistency of offense, and the inconsistency with their offensive line play, Miller can once again dominate. The Bengals have allowed eight sacks in two games, and haven’t faced a pass rusher of Miller’s caliber, let alone the Broncos pass rush corps.
Von Miller is having not only a Defensive player of the year type of season, but an MVP caliber. He is on pace to break the single season sack record. Well, shatter that record actually. That isn’t all that Miller does though.
Miller adds excellent run defense to extraordinary pass rush skills. He can set the edge and force runners back to top run defender Derek Wolfe, or make the play himself. Miller is just so disruptive.
He will be taking on right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, who is only in his second year in the NFL. Ogbuehi will have his toughest battle all season coming and it is only week three. Miller has an arsenal of ways to win this match-up. These Texas A&M Aggies will be fun to watch.
If Miller can handle Ogbuehi and take over the game, it will be a long day for Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. If Miller can apply the pressure, the Broncos corners can take advantage of forced throws that Dalton makes under pressure. If Miller can dominate this game, it is hard to see the Broncos not coming away with the victory.
Miller can put this game away and carry the Broncos to a victory is he plays like he has shown he can. Now, he will need help from the offense and Trevor Siemian. They have to put points on the board, but as for the defense, they will go how Miller goes.
Expect a low scoring game on September 24th as the Denver Broncos take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Paul Brown Stadium. Both teams have great defense with the Broncos being led by Miller and the secondary. They just need Siemian to put points on the board and not turn the ball over.
