The Denver Broncos defense will be represented in the 2017 Pro Bowl by both Von Miller and Aqib Talib. Alternates include both Chris Harris Jr. and Domata Peko, who have both had outstanding seasons.

Von Miller, in his seventh season, has 10 sacks on the year and is top edge defender in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. Aqib Talib, in his 10th season, has just one interception that was also a pick six, but is still one of the NFL’s top shut down corners this year.

For Miller, this is his sixth Pro Bowl selection and according to Mike Klis of 9News, only John Elway (9), Bailey (8), Steve Atwater (8), Shannon Sharpe (7) and Randy Gradishar (7) have more.

After such a down season, the league’s best defense is still going to be well represented in the 2017 Pro Bowl. Here’s to Harris and Peko getting in as alternates too.
