Denver enters as a three point underdog
OLB Von Miller may have to lay some money down in Vegas after they have his Denver Broncos as three point home underdogs. Miller has pledged to make Cam Newton’s game miserable as he intends to get back to what he does best…sack quarterbacks. The coaching staff have noticed Miller’s more vocal attitude after signing a hefty $114.5 million contract.
“He seems to be more comfortable at everything, more focused,” Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips said. “He wanted to prove to everybody that maybe he’s the best player, maybe he’s the defensive player of the year. He was the MVP in the Super Bowl, but I think his next goal is to be the defensive player of the year.”
Cam has taken notice of the not so subtle Miller and had nothing but praise for the reigning Super Bowl MVP.
“He’s a great and exceptional talent, one of top players in this NFL by far, and we’ve got to account for him,” said Newton, who went 18-of-41 for 265 yards and an interception in the Super Bowl. “But not focusing everything on 58, because they have a very talented defensive line as a whole. And we’ve got to control DeMarcus Ware. We can’t let those guys dictate to us.”
As the week continues on, excitement is building for the team and fans alike. Thursday cannot come quickly enough.
“It doesn’t matter to us. You could have a Dorito on your shoulder for all we care,” Broncos safety T.J. Ward said. “But you still have to come in here and beat us.”
