What more needs to be said about this matchup? Miller has sacked Rivers more than he’s sacked any other quarterback, and he added one — as well as a key interception — in the Broncos’ 23-22 win earlier this year.
There’s plenty of respect between these two stars, though. Miller lauded Rivers as “an MVP” on Thursday, and earlier in the season, Rivers called Miller “a Defensive Player of the Year-type guy.” There won’t be any love lost between the two on Sunday, though, especially after Rivers’ comments following the earlier game.
“Philip Rivers said, ‘We lost three games. We lost to two good teams, and we stubbed our toe with the Broncos,’” Miller recalled Thursday. “For us, it’s little stuff like that. Especially for me personally, it’s just little stuff like that where it’s like, ‘OK. We have a second crack at it, let’s see.’ I’ve got another shot, [and] they’ve got another shot, too. Let’s see.”
