Happy Wednesday, #BroncosCountry –
We're back at it today considering this Sunday's matchup against Pittsburgh holds some importance for post-season play. While you're waiting for the weekend — or just need a mid-day break — here are a couple things to get caught up on, starting with the Pro Bowl:
1. Pro Football Focus' Pro Bowl Roster
Following performances in Week 14, Pro Football Focus broke down the players that have stood out in their respective positions so far this season for it's own Pro Bowl roster.
Three Broncos were highlighted in the list, starting with outside linebacker Von Miller. Miller was joined as one of the top outside linebackers by Justin Houston (KC), Anthony Barr (MIN), K.J. Wright (SEA), Pernell McPhee (CHI), and Tamba Hali (KC).
Of the group of edge rushers, Miller and Houston are your two guys who you really notice, with Miller especially delivering a lot of pressure this year.
Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. was next selected at the top of a large group of corners along with Carolina's Josh Norman.
The trickiest selection of any position here, given the depth at the spot. Trumaine Johnson, Richard Sherman, and Logan Ryan were all guys who it was hard not to squeeze in. The top of the crop were Norman and Harris, with Norman enjoying a true breakout season.
Inside linebacker Brandon Marshall was also selected for the site's roster, joined by Luke Kuechly (CAR), Derrick Johnson (KC) and Jerrell Freeman (IND).

2. Some Mathis holiday cheer
Guard Evan Mathis and his wife, Katie, brought the holiday cheer on Tuesday. Please note the awesomeness of Evan's sweater:
