Linebacker Von Miller earned Super Bowl MVP honors Sunday night, forcing two fumbles and getting 2 1/2 sacks to help the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 for the championship.

Five years after being drafted No. 2 behind Cam Newton, Miller harassed Carolina's quarterback from start to finish.
Denver's first touchdown came when Miller ripped the football away from Newton, and the fumble was recovered in the end zone by defensive end Malik Jackson to put the Broncos ahead 10-0 about 8 1/2 minutes into the game.
And Denver's other TD came on a 4-yard drive after Miller knocked the ball out of Newton's hand again, this time with 4 minutes left in the fourth quarter.
