Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller recently sat down with The Washington Post to discuss his recovery from coronavirus, Super Bowl 50 and more.

The last time Miller spoke about the Chiefs, he sounded defeated after the Broncos had lost to the Chiefs for the ninth straight time. The Broncos are currently 0-5 against reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes.

The Washington Post didn’t help matters this week, as they asked Miller about how to stop Mahomes.

“Can’t,” admitted Miller. “We’ve just got to score points. If we’re able to get off the field — you can hold them to a third down here and there, but that’s on our offense. We’ve got to score on offense because you cannot — it’s not smart to go into the game and say we’re going to hold Patrick Mahomes to no points.”

The indications show that the Broncos realize that.

Now that the team has committed to local Missouri product Drew Lock as their franchise quarterback, they addressed weapons for Lock in the NFL Draft, taking receivers with their top two picks: Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy and Penn State’s K.J. Hamler. Many considered Jeudy the draft’s top receiver and Hamler runs an unofficial sub-4.3 40-yard dash.

Later in the draft, they selected Missouri tight end Albert Okweugbunam and Florida wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland.
