When all the awards are handed out, it may very well be Von Miller who takes the Defense Rookie of the Year honor.
However, he would not get top billing in terms of the playoffs.
Miller, the No. 2 overall pick out of Texas A&M, was no slouch during the regular season. He finished 2011 with 11.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles.
Against the Steelers, Miller posted another sack (no surprise) and put up three tackles.
However, he was all but absent in the showdown in Foxborough. Possibly due to a hand injury, the linebacker didn't register a sack or a tackle.
The only noise he made was in instigating a late-game brawl.
