As we continue our new weekly series, Between the Numbers (BTN), we will be evaluating where some of Denver’s biggest stars stand in comparison to the rest of the NFL. Today, we’ll look at OLB Von Miller.

Miller has recorded seventeen tackles for loss this season, tying for the most in the NFL (along side Houston’s J.J. Watt).  Here’s a look at how he stacks up against the rest of the pass rushers in the NFL:

Totals: 33 9.0 17 1 1
League Rank: N/A T-2nd T-1st N/A N/A


As is evident from Miller’s statistical standings above, Von has frequently found his way into opposing team’s backfields this season.  Just 1.5 sacks behind J.J. Watt, Miller could put himself into Defensive Player of the Year conversations by increasing his sack and tackle for loss totals in the second half of the season.

What have you thought of Miller’s performance through the season thus far? Has he lived up to your expectations?

    What more can be said about this ma… nay, wild beast who feasts upon QB’s and ravishes their minds with thoughts of turmoil and destruction.

    Soon the counterfeit superman known as Newton will shed tears of post game interview despair and be cast off into the darkness like a leper in his final hours.

    Oh great and mighty Von Miller. Ye though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no QB for you are with me. Thy strength and agility, they comfort me.

    Wasn’t Von the Week 9 BTN player?

    He was one of the players last week, yes, we’ll try to incorporate new players each week while also giving updates on “some of the biggest stars,” like Von Miller. He’ll probably be a weekly edition.

    Has he lived up to my expectations….. NO. I was expecting him to have 24 sacks by now so I think he is a huge disappointment. I think we should trade him for Lights Out Merriman
