1. Wade Phillips, Broncos defensive coordinator

Remember when Denver was an offensive team? It barely needed an offense as Phillips exposed Carolina’s flaws.

2. Von Miller, Broncos LB

Miller was an impossible matchup for Panthers tackle Mike Remmers. Miller’s outside pressure blew up the Panthers’ offensive plans.

3. Danny Trevathan, Broncos LB

His two hustle plays for fumble recoveries were big moments for the Broncos. Also had a team-high eight tackles.
