The Denver Broncos have one of the best defenses in the NFL right now, but they haven’t faced a quarterback like Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson yet this season.
Von Miller, the Broncos’ pass rusher, had some thoughts on facing the former MVP heading into this week’s matchup. In an appearance on The Colin Cowherd Podcast , Miller discussed the difficulty of facing Jackson. He admitted that he’d never faced anyone like the 2018 first-round pick and that he’d never seen anyone like him. Every time they turn on the tape for basic game film, it’s like watching a highlight reel, according to Miller. Jackson, he believes, is a one-of-a-kind player. “He’s a once-in-a-lifetime player..”
“There isn’t another football player on the planet like Lamar Jackson,” Miller stated.
Miller has never faced Lamar Jackson before, but he hopes to extend his current streak of sacks against him this weekend.

The numbers alone show how special Lamar Jackson is in the NFL. He currently leads the NFL in post yards per completion and yards per rushing attempt, both of which are firsts in the league.
Add in the fact that Jackson is on pace to set career highs in passing and rushing yards, and you have a unique talent that the NFL has never seen before. The Broncos take on the Ravens at 4:25 p.m. on Sunday.
It will air on CBS at 8:00 p.m. EST. Nokia News
