Over the first four games, the Jets' offensive line has allowed 10 sacks on rookie QB Sam Darnold. They will hope that number doesn't increase with Bronos Pro Bowl DE Von Miller on the other side of scrimmage.
Miller, who is arguably the best pass rusher in the NFL, has already totaled four sacks and two forced fumbles over four games. And considering he has 87.5 sacks over his first seven seasons, fellow DE in Jets Steve McLendon has the utmost respect for him.
"Von Miller?" he said to The Post's Mike Vaccaro. "You don't really need my words. His resume speaks well enough for itself. He has a great resume. He's a great football player and that's enough said."
The Jets will certainly be on high alert for Miller, as well as rookie DE Bradley Chubb in Sunday's 1 p.m. matchup. It will be RT Brandon Shell who will be tasked with blocking Miller, and he is ready to go.
"I like the challenge," Shell said. "It makes me better. You've got no choice but to elevate your game.
"He's a great athlete. He's very shifty, very smooth with what he does. He knows how to read things and is good feeling pressure. Whenever he feels pressure, he'll make a move to counter what you're about to do."
Left tackle Kelvin Beachum may not see Miller as much as Shell, but there is a chance for a one-on-one matchup due to the Broncos' defensive scheme. Miller roams around the line, and isn't set up just on the left side.
"They do a great job of putting him in different positions, whether it's stunting or blitzing, to get him one-on-one," Beachum said. "At some point you know you'll see him on the right or on the left side."
Shell was up against Miller last season in a 23-0 loss in Denver, where the defensive end collected a sack. If Shell isn't stout on Sunday, backup QB Josh McCown knows exactly what kind of pressure he will make.
He was the one Miller brought to the turf last season.
"You've got to know where he is, because he can mess up the game," McCown said.
So, look out for No. 58 in blue and orange on Sunday. Darnold certainly will be.
"He is a great player and [I'm] looking forward to going against him," he said.
