GLENDALE, AZ — “It worked,” Von Miller said grinning ear-to-ear, standing on the post-game podium following the Denver Broncos 45-10 beatdown over the Arizona Cardinals.
The face of the Broncos’ franchise is, of course, referring to the news-catching headlines he made on Tuesday with his remarks about Thursday night’s game.
“We’re going to kick their ass,” said Miller, who is more known for his jokes, smiles and dance moves than his bold, direct guarantees.
“Make sure you put that up there, we’re going to kick their ass. They’re going to get our best this week. Last week was tough, the week before that, whatever. This week, Thursday night, primetime, they’re going to get the Broncos’ best.”
And Von certainly wasn’t lying as Denver took the will out of the Cardinals from the get-go.
But more importantly than destroying a 1-6 team, and breaking their own four-game slide in the process, the Broncos established something they’ve been looking for since the Peyton Manning era.
