defender according to Pro Football Focus Good morning Juwann Winfree Denver Broncos Jersey , Broncos Country.Three sacks, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a dynamic overall effort that undoubtedly helped propel the Denver Broncos to victory over the Seattle Seahawks. After limited participation in the preseason, Von Miller’s performance on Sunday was nothing short of amazing and demonstrated just how valuable a player of his caliber is. Any team in the National Football League would be beyond excited to have him as a centerpiece of their franchise, with the John Gruden led Oakland Raiders likely being an exception. However, there was one notable outlet that seemed to think Miller’s gridiron prowess wasn’t anything special.Everyone knows about Pro Football Focus. Writers and analysts across the board (including us here at Mile High Report) have been citing their material for quite some time. For better or worse, they have changed the grading landscape when it comes to players. Moreover, have cemented themselves as a go-to resource for football fans across the globe.You would think that Miller’s ferocious effort against the Seahawks would earn him an astronomical grade by their formula and a spot in their Team of the Week honors, but apparently not. Khalil Mack of the Chicago Bears earned their top grade for edge defenders, with fifth-round rookie Genard Avery of the Cleveland Browns holding down the second spot. Avery had himself a respectable professional debut registering a sack, a quarterback hit and hurry, as well as several defensive stops — but how in the Hell does that earn a better grade than what Miller did?Truth be told, the world may never know. If you check out the Tweet thread above, you will see PFF’s Gordon McGuiness attempt to give an explanation to justify Avery having a better grade. I appreciate his willingness to engage with fans about Miller’s notable omission, but his reasoning doesn’t seem to make much sense. There is no doubt that Miller had a better defensive performance than Avery on Sunday, regardless of how you try and spin it.I’m not an expert by any means, but I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to understand who the better defender on the field was this past Sunday. For whatever it’s worth, PFF was the same outlet who gave John Ross a higher grade in his rookie season than Evan Engram last year. Ross played in three games in 2017 for the Cincinnati Bengals and registered no receptions and had one rush for 12 yards. On the other hand, Engram was one of the most productive rookies in the entire league, starting 11 games and reeling in 64 receptions for 722 yards and six touchdowns.But apparently, just like in a particular high school course for a certain someone, you get a higher grade for doing nothing as opposed to something. Need I say more? I think you see where I’m going with this. Methinks there might be a little margin for error in their calculations, and I’m sure Broncos Country will feel the same way after reading this — if they already didn’t have qualms about their grading process to begin with.As always, thank you for reading and here is today’s offering of Horse Tracks.Horse TracksDenver Broncos offense breaks out in Week 1 winBroncos’ yardage output was their most since the final week of the 2015 regular season.Garett Bolles, Denver Broncos offensive line pass first test against SeattleDenver coach Vance Joseph: “We’ve got to run the football and protect Case (Keenum).

DENVER (AP) — The “snap infraction ” that doomed Dallas to a 20-17 loss at Washington capped a wild Week 7 that began with Von Miller’s kept promise to kick some Cardinals booty. It also included a flexed flop in Kansas City, a gamble that backfired in London, and Doug Pederson’s proclamation that the pressure is off his slumping Super Bowl champs .The biggest call of the weekend came when a Redskins lineman moved early as Cowboys kicker Brett Maher lined up for a tying 47-yard field goal in the final minute. The flag was on Dallas long snapper L.P. Ladoceur, who tilted the ball before the snap.“Exact same things I’ve been doing for 14 years Justin Simmons Jersey ,” Ladoceur said.He’s not alone. Long snappers routinely move the ball like Ladoceur did just before they snap it, and a flag is hardly ever thrown.Instead of getting 5 yards closer, the Cowboys were backed up 5 yards, which mattered when Maher’s 52-yarder clanked off the left upright, leaving the Redskins (4-2) atop the topsy-turvy NFC East instead of the Cowboys (3-4).While fans across the country were wondering what the heck a “snap infraction” was, the NFL tweeted a video about the rule — but didn’t say whether it was the correct call: “The illegal ball movement by the center in #DALvsWAS causes the defense to come across the neutral zone and contact a lineman.”Players and coaches in both locker rooms were stumped by the uncommon call by referee John Hussey’s crew at such a crucial moment.“This was a terrible call,” NBC analyst Tony Dungy declared. “An illegal snap has to be an abrupt movement or something unusual. The Dallas center does neither one of those. It’s not abrupt nor is it unusual.”NBC showed side-by-side views of Ladoceur’s movement on the play that was whistled and the do-over and they looked identical. No flag was thrown on the second snap.“That is his normal motion,” Dungy argued. “He did it in the snap before that. The next snap he does the exact same thing.”LONDON CALLINGAnother debatable call with huge implications was Titans coach Mike Vrabel’s decision to go for 2 — and then to throw the ball from the 1 after a flag for defensive holding on the first conversion pass — instead of going for the tie and playing for overtime in Tennessee’s 20-19 loss to the Chargers in London.“I’m not going to second-guess the call,” Vrabel said after Marcus Mariota’s pass to Taywan Taylor in traffic was tipped away by safety Adrian Phillips.“I love the call, everyone in this locker room loved the call,” Titans wide receiver Tajae Sharpe said. “We wanted to be aggressive no matter what, and that’s what we did. Unfortunately, it just didn’t go our way.”The Titans (3-4) had the momentum, having rallied from an 11-point second-half deficit.Going for the win is a mantra, repeated most recently by Colts coach Frank Reich after a Week 4 loss, but maybe it’s time NFL players, coaches and fans learn to look at ties like the NHL does.Of the six most recent ties prior to this season, half of them had direct playoff implications, including the 13-13 deadlock between the Eagles and Bengals in 2008 in which Donovan McNabb famously admitted he didn’t know a tie was even a thing.At 9-6-1, the Eagles edged the Cowboys, Bears and Buccaneers — all 9-7 — for the final NFC wild-card spot that season.EASYGOING EAGLESThe Eagles are the latest team to realize how uneasy the head is that wears the crown.On a day dominated by Eric Reid and Malcom Jenkins turning the fight for racial and social justice into a skirmish on the field, the Eagles’ 21-17 loss to the Panthers dropped Philadelphia to 3-4 a year after going 16-3.Pederson said he told his team, “Hey, pressure’s off of us. Nobody on the outside world is giving us a chance to do much of anything and the pressure’s off, so we can go play, have fun and just relax.”BRONCOS KICKING BOOTYWeek 7 kicked off with a butt-kicking just like Miller promised as the Broncos snapped a four-game skid with a 45-10 thrashing of the Cardinals on Thursday night.Miller, who had two strip sacks, acknowledged his message was really directed as his teammates.“It was a smart thing because we can’t make him a liar,” Denver nose tackle Shelby Harris said Monday. “It just set the tone for the whole week. We said we were going to do it, and so we got to go out there and do it. Because if we don’t, we’re a bunch of liars.”DENVER DE JA VUAs he did in Denver last year, Mike McCoy stubbornly spread out his formation with a patchwork O-line that couldn’t keep pass rushers off his young QB. He paid the price with a midseason firing for the second straight year, and his third pink slip in less than two years.The Cardinals canned McCoy after what rookie head coach Steve Wilks called an “embarrassing” outing against the Broncos and the offense’s putrid performance over seven games.Wilks might regret Cardinals coaches leaving rookie QB Josh Rosen in the game until the end while the Broncos were fulfilling their pledge to whoop the Cardinals and teeing off on bewildered tackles. Rosen was injured on his final play, limping off with a sprained toe on his left foot.FLEX FLOPBengals-Chiefs seemed like a worthy choice for the NFL’s first flexed game this season. A pair of first-place teams. Juicy plot lines with high-powered offenses in this year of skyrocketing scores. Deficient defenses.It had all the makings of another shootout like the Chiefs and Patriots one week earlier.Instead, it was another blowout, the league’s second consecutive 45-10 shellacking in prime time as Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and Marvin Lewis didn’t do anything to keep up with Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill and Andy Reid.
