Von Miller: playing Brady, Gronk makes him nervous

Von Miller is indisputably one of the best defensive players in the NFL; a Superbowl MVP award and an exclusive franchise tag certainly help bolster that argument.

That doesn't mean he isn't sweating a bit when faced with stopping the New England Patriots' dynamic Brady-Gronk combination.

Miller spoke on NFL Network's Total Access Wednesday about the duo and Brady's abilities, even now as the veteran signal-caller inches closer to 40 years of age.

"If he looks at you, it just gives you that nervousness," Miller said via "Every time I'm in coverage and Tom Brady is looking over there, I'm like, 'He's going to pass the ball to my guy. He knows what coverage we're in. He knows what’s going on.'

"He's just a smart player."
