The Denver Broncos may have lost their best defensive player after outside linebacker Von Miller suffered a knee injury that’s ended his day early:

Miller was being blocked when he suddenly fell and grabbed his knee. He wasn’t hit low, but it looked like his leg gave out under him.
The Broncos have also lost wide receiver Eric Decker to an apparent leg injury that they are evaluating. Center Steve Vallos also exited the game to be evaluated for a possible concussion.
The New Orleans Saints lost safety Kenny Vaccaro to a significant leg injury:
