    Departing from the usual protocol of the honoree being the one to receive the congratulations, Von Miller did the hugging.

    The Broncos linebacker embraced Elvis Dumervil after breaking Dumervil's single-season sack record Sunday during Denver's rout of Cleveland.

    In just his second NFL season, Miller needed one sack to set a new team record. He got 1 1/2 on Sunday, giving him 17 ½ sacks this season. Dumervil, a defensive end, totaled 17 sacks in 2009.

    "I went right up to Elvis and gave him a hug," Miller said of his reaction upon setting the record. "I had talked to him about (doing) that. Elvis is a great guy. All that (stats) stuff doesn't matter to him. All that matters to him is playing our best football. That's also what matters to me."
