Von Miller’s Suspension Won’t Affect Denver Broncos’ Super Bowl Chances

Von Miller Suspension

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

So much for that tweet by Von Miller that he did nothing wrong. On Monday, reports surfaced the Denver Broncos‘ star linebacker will be suspended at least six games for violating the NFL‘s substance policy. But before everyone starts re-doing their Super Bowl picks, remember who holds the reins in Denver.

Peyton Manning has the Broncos ready to roll with or without Miller and his defensive teammate’s absence won’t affect how many points Denver puts on the board. With Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker ready to score in bunches, Manning will keep the Broncos’ ship sailing smoothly without Miller.

Miller was originally going to receive a four-game suspension and now that it’s reportedly been extended, it’s safe to assume it won’t be much more than six, if any more at all. Let’s take a gander at the Broncos’ first six games of the season, shall we?

The Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars are the teams to face the Broncos right off the bat this year, with four of those games in Denver. There’s only one 2012 playoff team in that bunch and the defending champs aren’t the same team that beat the Broncos in the divisional round of the postseason.

Worst-case scenario, the Broncos start the season 4-2 without Miller. Once he returns in Week 7 or shortly thereafter, Denver could easily finish 14-2. As far as the win column is concerned, you won’t even notice Miller is gone.

Eli Manning Has Interesting Reaction To Broncos' Super Bowl Win

Eli Manning was captured on video making an interesting face when the Denver Broncos cemented their Super Bowl 50 win. The Internet firmly believes Eli is upset that Peyton now has two rings just like he does, but this is simply an overreaction. Eli was clearly nervous throughout the game, and his odd facial expressions are more indicative of a sign of relief than anything else.
