Broncos vs. Chiefs: Elvis Dumervil, Von Miller present challenge for KC's line

Doug Pensinger

Von Miller is second in the league in sacks and Elvis Dumervil is one of the best in the league at getting to the quarterback.

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller and defensive end Elvis Dumervil have terrorized opposing quarterbacks all season and they now have the bulls-eye square on the chest of Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback Brady Quinn.

Chiefs' offensive coordinator Brian Daboll said this during Friday's media session:

"Those two guys, you watch the tape, it really doesn't matter. Ten-year veteran, five-year veteran, rookie, tight end and tackle, tight end, tackle and back sometimes, those two guys are one of the most dynamic pass-rushing tandems in the league. They're hard to block they really are."

In just his second season, Miller is already one of the top pass-rushers in the game. He finished last season with 11.5 sacks and already has 13.0 through 10 games this season. He is second in the NFL in sacks behind San Francisco 49ers' linebacker Aldon Smith.

Dumervil is the veteran of the two stalwarts. He came into the league in 2006 and has two double-digit sack seasons already to his name with 12.5 in 2007 and a career-high 17.0 in 2009. He already has 8.0 sacks this season and is well on his way to another double-digit sack season.

"We're going to have to do a good job with different ways to block them and be able to run the football. But it really doesn't matter who they've went up against right now, they've been doing a really good job handling the pass-rush aspect of the game."

Dumervil and Miller have to be licking their chops heading into the game on Sunday as the Chiefs have given up 10 sacks in their last four games, including four last week against the Cincinnati Bengals.
