He sacked QB Cam Newton once (pictured), forced a fumble and had four tackles for a loss. Just as Manning makes defenses adjust to him, and then beats them anyway, Miller remains a disruptive forces even as opposing offenses do everything they can to account for him.
One thing that should be mentioned is that Miller was spying Newton on 3rd downs all day, on several 3rd and long situations we actually blitzed and kept Miller back to spy because he is the one linebacker we have who is fast and strong enough to bring Newton down.
