NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – After winning the Super Bowl MVP award and signing a $114 million contract, Broncos Linebacker Von Miller is not resting on his laurels.

He’s picked up right where he left off in 2015, pressuring quarterbacks and leading the NFL in sacks this year with 13.5.

For a Titans team that has been one of the best offenses in the league over the last eight weeks, Miller is a major point of focus headed into this weekend’s game.

“He’s the super bowl MVP. He’s one of those types of players that can change the outcome of the game with one play, and he’s done it numerous times this year, whether it’s getting a strip sack, forcing a turnover by the other quarterback,” said Marcus Mariota. “I mean, he’s one of those types of players that can just be a huge difference, so you know, we gotta do a good job of you know handling that.”

The Broncos lead the NFL in sacks with a team total of 36 for an average of 3 per game and if the Titans want to win Sunday they’ll have to keep Marcus Mariota upright and avoid a Von Miller take over.

Kickoff is Sunday at 12 p.m. at Nissan Stadium and with a win over Miller and the Broncos the Titans could be in first place atop the AFC South.
