On Thursday night, the Broncos defeated the Jets, thanks in part to a strong defensive effort led by rookie linebacker Von Miller, who regularly harassed New York quarterback Mark Sanchez.
On Friday night, Miller joined NBC SportsTalk to discuss the victory.
But Miller may eventually hear from the league office. Careful examination of three hits by Miller on Sanchez that seemed to involve the defender’s helmet suggests that, although no flags were thrown, one of the plays likely will trigger a fine. Specifically, Miller placed the crown of his helmet forcibly into Sanchez’s chest after Sanchez threw a pass to running back Joe McKnight with just under nine minutes remaining in the second quarter.
During his visit to NBC SportsTalk, Miller said he’s not worried about getting fined, ultimately summing up his views on the situation with this gem: “Shoot first and ask questions later.”
Every Friday, we ask questions, without shooting first, of one to three players or coaches or other NFL figures of interest. We’ll be back next Friday at 6:00 p.m. ET on VERSUS.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
