Videos: Von Miller, Broncos D make Carolina's Cam Newton their bitch

During the last three Broncos victories (over San Diego, New Orleans and Cincinnati), the focus was on Peyton Manning, and rightfully so. But while Manning put up impressive stats in yesterday's 36-14 dismantling of the Carolina Panthers, the stars of the game were Von Miller and the Broncos defense -- an excellent sign for those of us who'd like to see this winning streak continue to get longer and longer.
