PHOENIX, Ariz – I guess you can add “psychic” to Von Miller’s lengthy resume.

Earlier this week, he used some colorful language to describe the beatdown that would take place in Arizona Thursday night.

Von and the rest of the Denver Broncos delivered in their matchup against the Arizona Cardinals, snapping a 4-game losing streak and preserving Vance Joseph’s job for at least another week.

The Broncos are now 3-4, and sit in 3rd place in the AFC West.

Two plays into the game, Josh Rosen’s pass was tipped by Derek Wolfe and picked off by Todd Davis– who ran the interception back for a touchdown.

Chris Harris Jr. took another back 53 yards for a score with 2:02 left in the quarter as the Broncos opened a 21-3 lead.

It’s the first time the Broncos have had two interceptions returned for touchdowns in the same game since 1989.

The highlight reel continued as Emmanuel Sanders threw a touchdown pass to Courtland Sutton in the 1st quarter, for a 28 yard play.

The very next quarter, Sanders would one up his passing skills by showing off his hands–as Case Keenum would connect with the wide receiver for a 64 yard touchdown.

Von Miller and Bradley Chubb each had a pair of sacks in the Broncos 45-10 victory over Arizona.

Case Keenum completed 14 of 21 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown with one interception for Denver. Phillip Lindsay rushed for 90 yards on 14 carries, including a 28-yard TD run.
