Von Miller, Chris Harris Jr. are kryptonite for three teams
Two Denver Broncos players have been a thorn in the side to three teams in the NFL. Von Miller and Chris Harris Jr. hope to continue that in 2019.
For Denver Broncos fans, there are a few players that provide so much frustration because they perform so well against the Broncos. Quite a few players come to mind for me. But the question is how did they do on the stat sheet?
There is no doubt that there are some players on the Denver Broncos that frustrates fans of other teams. It so happens that two of the longest tenured players have given three teams plenty of trouble.
Since 2006, Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. has given the division rival Chiefs plenty of problems. Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller has given the Los Angeles Chargers and Cincinnati Bengals fits since he entered the league in 2011.
How much of a problem have these two players given these three teams? According to Pro Football Focus, Chris Harris Jr. has recorded a 91.3 overall grade against the Chiefs. Quarterbacks from the longtime AFC West rivals have recorded a passer rating average of 69.8, which includes a 8.3 yards allowed per pass when the Chiefs quarterbacks throw his way.
As for Von Miller, he has recorded an overall grade of 92.8 against the Los Angeles Chargers and a 91.1 overall grade against the Cincinnati Bengals. Against the Chargers, Miller has recorded 87 pressures against the AFC West rivals to go along with 20.6 percent pass-rush win rate and a 19.1 percent pressure rate.
When it comes to the Bengals, Von Miller has recorded a 90.9 rush defense grade and an 88.4 pass-rush grade.
These are some pretty solid numbers against these three teams. While Von Miller will not be able to improve those numbers against the Bengals, he will get two chances against the Chargers. Chris Harris Jr. will have two chances to improve his numbers as well in the two matchups with the Kansas City Chiefs.
I am excited to see what these two can do under the defensive mind of Vic Fangio. Look for both to thrive in a big way in 2019 and hopefully beyond. Two of the best Broncos on the roster will look to play huge parts in the defense.
