ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Forget the Tim Tebow hype machine for a moment. It's Miller Time in Denver.
Broncos linebacker Von Miller, the second overall selection in the draft, has led Denver's defensive revival along with pass-rushing partner Elvis Dumervil.
The duo has been collecting sacks and crumpling quarterbacks at a prolific pace over the last three weeks, battering Carson Palmer, Matt Cassel and Mark Sanchez.
They've combined for seven sacks over that span and have become the first pair of teammates in more than a decade to share a QB sandwich sack in three straight games.
With Dumervil full speed again after dealing with nagging shoulder and ankle ailments, he and Miller have finally been able to unleash a potent 1-2 punch that Miller has dubbed "Batman and Robin."
