Broncos LB Von Miller named MVP of Super Bowl 50


SANTA CLARA, Calif. — There was nothing different and nothing exotic about what the Denver Broncos’ defense did to Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, Broncos linebacker Von Miller insisted.

It was just brutally timely and efficient.

Miller was at the center of the storm for the Broncos, and he was the game’s MVP after racking up 2.5 sacks of Newton, including two game-changing strip-sacks that first set the tone, then sealed the Broncos’ 24-10 victory at Levi’s Stadium.

“In all honesty, we came into the game wanting to play our defense,” Miller said. “We knew if we were to be consistent and play [our] style of defense that we’d be able to come out on top.”

Even though, Miller finished with six tackles — his 2.5 sacks were for a combined 27 yards — two quarterback hits, a pass defensed and the two forced fumbles, he credited his teammates.

“If I could cut this award,” he said, “I would give it to DeMarcus [Ware] and [Derek] Wolfe and all the other guys. That’s what I would do. This is all great and stuff, but for me, I want to be with my guys.

“I would take the ring. The MVP is great, but I’ll take the ring. I want to go in there with my teammates.”
