On the strength of a three-sack performance against the San Diego Chargers, linebacker Von Miller took home his second career Defensive Player of the Week Award for Week 11.
In addition to sacking Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers three times last Sunday, he forced two fumbles and registered six tackles — two of which were for a loss.
Miller’s three sacks led the AFC for the week, and he is now the only AFC player to record at least three sacks and two forced fumbles in a game in 2012.
He currently ranks second in the NFL and first in the AFC with 13 sacks while leading the league with 23 tackles for a loss.
Miller previously took home Defensive Player of the Week in Week 11 as a rookie. He joins cornerback Tracy Porter and linebacker Wesley Woodyard as the third Bronco to take home the award this season.
