Von Miller returns to the Super Bowl, where he can make NFL history – Broncos Wire

After defeating the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 in the NFC championship game on Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams and outside linebacker Von Miller have advanced to Super Bowl LVI.
The Rams will face the Cincinnati Bengals, who knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in the AFC’s title game on Sunday afternoon.
This will be the third time Miller’s team has reached the Super Bowl, although he sidelined with a knee injury when the Denver Broncos went to the Super Bowl in 2013.
Miller was healthy when Denver returned to the Super Bowl following the 2015 season and he had a huge game in Super Bowl 50, totaling six tackles, 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. That performance earned him Super Bowl MVP honors. If Miller has another big game against the Bengals, he could make NFL history.
Miller ranks 19th on the NFL’s all-time playoff sack list with 8.5. Two more sacks would move him into the top 10. More than two sacks would move him into the top five.
Charles Haley holds the official record for the most Super Bowl sacks with 4.5 in five games. Five players are tied for second place with three Super Bowl sacks. Miller could move into second place with one sack and he could jump to No. 1 with 2.5 sacks.
(Unofficially, L. C. Greenwood totaled five sacks in four Super Bowls, but he played before the NFL started counting sacks as a stat. Miller would need three sacks to top Greenwood’s unofficial Super Bowl record.)
Miller is already one of just 10 defensive players in league history to win Super Bowl MVP. With a big game, he could become the first defensive player to ever win more than one Super Bowl MVP award.
Super Bowl LVI will be played at SoFi Stadium (home of the Rams) in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 13 at 4:30 p.m. MT on NBC.
