On Thursday, Von Miller was named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month for November.
The linebacker notched at least a half sack in each of Denver’s four games in the month — the longest streak by a Denver rookie since Mike Croel had a sack in six straight contests in 1991. He has now taken down the quarterback in nine of the last 10 games.
His season sack total is 10.5, which ranks first in the AFC and is tied for third in the league.
His 31 tackles in November — including a career-high 10 tackles last week — tied for the team lead.
Miller was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week in Week 11 after notching nine tackles, 1.5 sacks, three tackles for loss, four quarterback hits and a pass defensed against the Jets.
Most recently, Miller made arguably the play of the game against San Diego, tackling Chargers running back Mike Tolbert in overtime for a 4-yard loss to force a 53-yard field goal, which kicker Nick Novak missed wide right. The Broncos offense went on to drive for a game-winning field goal.
In addition to his 10.5 sacks, on the season Miller has accumulated 57 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 21 quarterback hits, four passes defensed and two forced fumbles.
Miller is just the fourth Bronco to win a Rookie of the Month Award, joining D.J. Williams in 2004, Clinton Portis in 2002 and Mike Anderson (twice) in 2000.
