Since being drafted with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller has been one of the best players in franchise history. He added to his historic resume on Saturday with a record-breaking sack in the fourth quarter.

At the start of the first quarter with Denver in need of a stop on third down, its star pass rusher shined as he almost always does. Miller came free up the middle on a stunt and brought down Mayfield for the 98th sack in his career.

Miller’s huge sack not only provided momentum for Denver, it also helped him pass linebacker Simon Fletcher for Denver’s all-time record of 97.5 sacks. Once the record was his, the Broncos released a statement on behalf of Fletcher congratulating Miller for his new record.

It’s been a treat for football fans to watch Miller throughout his NFL career. He is only 29, so it’s safe to say more sacks and big moments are coming from the star pass rusher and he’ll only add to his franchise record moving forward.
