Von Miller believes Denver Broncos defense isn't getting enough love

The Denver Broncos have gotten off to a good start to the season, as they current have a 6-0 record and they sit at the top of the AFC West, but linebacker Von Miller doesn't think the defense is receiving enough love.

However, this hasn't come without some tough situations already this season, as on numerous occasions, quarterback Peyton Manning has failed to show up for the franchise on the field at the level which he is known to perform at during all his years in the NFL.

When those poor performances occur, it is a brilliant outing by the Broncos defense which saves the AFC West side from receiving their first loss of the season.

Despite the defense receiving credit for the majority of the Broncos wins this season, Miller doesn't think the defense is being given the recognition it deserves.

He said, according to the Denver Post: “It’s a big-time game going against a big-time offense. Aaron Rodgers on Sunday Night Football. It’s going to be a time where we can go show everybody what the Broncos defense is all about. I still don’t think we are getting the love we should get. In prime time, we should be able to prove our point.”

I'm not sure who is telling Miller that the defense isn't responsible for the majority if not all of the Broncos wins this season, but he needs to stop listening to them because they're not right.

Manning has to improve over the next couple of weeks whether the Broncos are undefeated or not, otherwise this might be his last season as a starter in the NFL, or even quite possibly his last season in the league altogether.

The Broncos are currently on their bye week, so they have extra time to prepare before they play against another undefeated side, the Green Bay Packers, in week eight in the prime time TV slot. Where better for Miller to prove the defense need the extra love than in front of the whole nation on Sunday night!
