Anyone that watched Super Bowl 50 saw that Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was virtually unblockable in the team’s 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers.
Miller picked up where he left off in the AFC Championship game, when he recorded three sacks and five other pressures. The Panthers didn’t have any answers for Miller, either, and he racked up six tackles and two-and-a-half sacks (forcing fumbles on two of those, both of which led to touchdowns).
The takeaway here is that Miller is pretty good, and not many players want to line up opposite him. Teammate C.J. Anderson sure doesn’t, and the Broncos running back had a great quote about it in speaking with the media after the game.
In Broncos’ locker room, CJ Anderson said he wants to finish his career in Denver so he “never has to block Von Miller.”

It’s no wonder that Miller took home the MVP award. He was the difference in the game, coming up big when his team needed him most. And Anderson wants nothing to do with attempting to block him—ever.
