Defense: A

Miller has had better games statistically than he did Sunday; just seven days earlier he sacked Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton three times. But never has he been more disruptive. He sacked Newton once, pressured him from behind to force the errant throw that CB Tony Carter turned into a 40-yard return for a touchdown and was so intimidating that by the fourth quarter, Panthers TE Greg Olsen practically waved him by rather than attempting to block him on a run play. The only negative was coverage that allowed Olsen to get wide open twice downfield for deep receptions on the Panthers' first scoring drive, but the Broncos rebounded. Midway through the fourth quarter, the Panthers' offense was so defeated that it had averaged just 3.6 inches per play in the 20 plays that followed halftime. It's also telling that the defense again accounted for points, scoring nine on Carter's return and a Mike Adams safety.
