No. 58’s legacy in good hands

Denver’s Miller channels Derrick Thomas
Von Miller has 13 sacks this season, helping pace the Denver defense to an NFL-best mark of 35 sacks heading into this week’s game with Kansas City, the former home of Miller’s idol, the late Derrick Thomas.
Usually after his first sack in any given game, Von Miller does his go-to dance. Every time he does it, the makers of the video game “Hip Hop Dance Experience” give $1,000 to Miller’s charity, Von’s Vision, which helps underprivileged kids get eye care.
