Von Miller named Super Bowl MVP
Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller overwhelmed the Carolina Panthers' offense and was named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl 50. Miller had 2 1/2 sacks, twice forcing fumbles. He had six tackles. "In all honesty, we came into the game wanting to play our defense," Miller said. "We knew if we were to be consistent and play [our] style of defense that we'd be able to come out on top. The MVP is great, but I'll take the ring. I want to go in there with my teammates." "He's a helluva player, but he has become a great pro, a great man and a big leader on this football team," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said. "Very proud of everybody but especially proud of him." "I'm going for the ball every time, that's just the type of football player I am," Miller said. "If it was basketball, I'd definitely be a 3-point shooter. I'm definitely going for the ball."
