Number 18, of course, is Broncos legend Peyton Manning. The lofty praise was broadcast to everyone watching given that Von Miller was mic’ed up throughout the game. He addressed the media on his Manning-Bridgewater comparison, indicating that it was meant to be a private moment between two teammates.

“I kind of forgot that I was mic’d up,” Miller told reporters when asked about the comment. “I don’t like putting stuff out there. That was a moment for me and Teddy, but it’s out there. I don’t want anybody to feel a certain way because I told Teddy that. I told Teddy the truth. He definitely has this this vibe about him that guys want to play for. Guys believe in Teddy.
