Von Miller had a good September. The Denver Broncos star linebacker recorded five sacks and forced a game-changing fumble in three games.

For that, he was named AFC Defensive Player of the Month on Thursday.

Miller racked up a sack in Denver’s season opener against Carolina, three against Indianapolis and another one against Cincinnati. His strip-sack of Andrew Luck clinched the Broncos’ Week 2 win.

He’s in the midst of one of the best runs ever for a pass rusher.

Miller’s teammate Trevor Siemian won AFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday.
