Sunday Will Be First Time Von Miller’s Faced This in NFL Career
The Buffalo Bills were banking on changing their defensive line pass rush when signing star edge rusher Von Miller to a six-year contract back in March.
The Bills also revamped their defensive line with the likes of Jordan Phillips, DaQuan Jones and Tim Settle. To say it has paid off so far would be an understatement.
The Bills have gotten the second highest percentage of pressures against opposing quarterbacks through the first two games, according to TruMediaSports.
That's with just three blitzes...
Miller has two sacks and multiple more pressures in the first two games. He's been extremely impactful in these games so far, which has helped other players like Gregory Rousseau, Jordan Phillips, DaQuan Jones, Tim Settle, Jordan Phillips and A.J. Epenesa.
Miller was drafted 2nd overall in the 2011 NFL Draft and believe it or not, the future Hall of Famer has never played against a left-handed QB in his NFL career.
That would change on Sunday with 2020 first round pick, Tua Tagovailoa.
Miller has played against a left-handed QB in practice. Tim Tebow was a teammate of Miller's in 2011 on their magical playoff run, which included a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime.
With the number of injuries the Bills have on defense, Miller will be asked to step up and cause havoc for Tua in the backfield. There's a growing chance Dane Jackson, Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer don't play, which would mean Kaiir Elam, Christian Benford and Jaquan Johnson would be called upon against the Miami wide receivers.
