Broncos linebacker Von Miller joined an elite club when he sacked Philip Rivers in the first half on Sunday.

Including the playoffs, Miller now has 100 sacks in his NFL career, and the eighth-year pro also joined an elite group of Reggie White and DeMarcus Ware as the only players in league history to record at least 10 sacks in seven of their first eight seasons.

Since the Broncos drafted Miller No. 2 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft, the former Texas A&M star has been one of the most consistent pass rushers in the league. Miller has recorded double digit sack totals in every season that he has played at least 10 games in, and is directly responsible for 28 turnovers (26 forced fumbles, two interceptions).
