https://www.broncoslockerroom.com/authentic-drew-lock-jersey , Von Miller just can’t find anything bad to say about Philip Rivers anymore.“I’ve always enjoyed going against Philip,” Miller said Thursday. “Well, I’m lying. I didn’t use to always like going against Philip.聽I really didn’t like the guy聽until like two years ago.”That’s when the Broncos‘ star pass rusher got to know the Chargers‘ star quarterback at the Pro Bowl.“When we kicked it at the Pro Bowl, I was just blown away about what type of guy he was on and off the football field,” Miller said. “And I got a lot of respect for him.”Miller said that if Rivers were surrounded by the talent the likes of which Tom Brady, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger have enjoyed throughout their careers, “he’d have multiple Super Bowls just like those guys.”Miller and Rivers face each other for the 15th time Sunday when the聽reeling Broncos聽(3-6), losers of six of their last seven, face the聽red-hot Chargers聽(7-2), who have won six in a row.Miller said the only reason he used to despise Rivers was the uniform he wears.“I just didn’t like him because he played for the Chargers,” Miller said.It wasn’t so hard for him to come around to liking the guy, however.“You ride on the bus at the Pro Bowl and in the locker room you’re just around the guys and you’re like, ‘Man, this guy’s cool. I like this guy.’ He’s a great father. He’s a great leader for the Chargers,” Miller said. “I know some guys over there in Melvin Ingram and Melvin Gordon and they say the same thing about him.“Everybody loves him. I’ve got a lot of respect for him and this game’s going to be a good one.”Miller said so many other defenders are bothered by Rivers because of his talent and renowned trash talk.“I wouldn’t say it’s trash because his trash talking really doesn’t bother me: ‘Got the first down, sucker!’ It really doesn’t bother me. Some guys it does, but not me,” Miller said. “I like playing against Philip. He’s a good guy.”Miller has sacked Rivers 15 times聽, by far the most of any quarterback he’s ever faced and almost twice as many times as No. 2 on the list, Alex Smith, with eight.Rivers said Miller is even more dangerous opposite rookie Bradley Chubb.Combined, they have 17 sacks so far.“Those are two really good rushers, really good football players,” Rivers said. “I think Von plays the heck out of the run. So does Chubb.”Miller said Rivers has never been better.He’s getting the ball out quicker than ever, the Chargers’ ground game is the best it’s been in years and L.A.’s O-line is playing exceptionally well, all reasons Rivers has only been sacked a dozen times so far.“It’s the best Chargers team that I have played in my career,” said Miller, an eighth-year pro.So, who’s replaced Rivers atop Miller’s enemies list?“I don’t really have any enemies at quarterback,” Miller said. “Now, offensive linemen, it’s different. But you know quarterbacks, whenever I get close to them they fall or they run away. Those are the type of pants I like to wear.“I’m pretty cool with quarterbacks. It’s a quarterbacks’ league Womens Dre'Mont Jones Jersey , so I’m friendly with all the quarterbacks.”And pretty good at buttering them up, too. Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey doesn't view Kansas City Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill as much of a matchup concern.At least not as a receiver.Ramsey fired back at Hill on Thursday, pointing out that his two Pro Bowl appearances came as a returner."I don't like how whoever has made it a matchup me against Tyreek," Ramsey said three days before the Chiefs (4-0) host the Jaguars (3-1)."He's good for what he does for their team. He made All-Pro as a return specialist. Let's get that right 鈥?as a return specialist 鈥?his rookie year. He went to two Pro Bowls as a return specialist 鈥?return specialist 鈥?two years."I made All-Pro in my position as a corner, went to the Pro Bowl as a corner. So it's not a wide receiver versus corner matchup, so we can get that out of the way off the bat."Hill called Ramsey a "great player, obviously" a day earlier, but Ramsey seemed to take offense to some of Hill's other remarks."He obviously thinks high of himself, so he's all right, I guess," Hill said. "I can't wait to line up against him, and I hope he presses me."Ramsey is expected to shadow Hill all over the field in a game that features the NFL's No. 1 offense against the league's top-rated defense. And since Ramsey and the Jags play primarily press coverage, Hill will get his wish."If you look at my film, what do I do every week?" Ramsey said. "I play press, right? Every week, no matter who I'm playing, so if he wants smoke, it'll get there."Hill has 23 receptions for 364 yards and three touchdowns this season. He has 159 catches for 2,140 yards and 16 scores in three seasons. He also has four punt returns for touchdowns, including one this season, and one kickoff return for a score as a rookie.Hill had nine catches for 54 yards Monday night at Denver."I'm always up for a challenge," Hill said. "He's a great player, and I'm always up for a challenge. To get my name out there more I need to go up against more talents like him, you know what I'm saying? I'm not calling (Broncos cornerback) Chris Harris or nobody else bad, but he is the top dog right now, so I can't wait."Even that didn't seem to satisfy Ramsey, who has 13 tackles and a pass breakup this season."I just wish he would have picked a side," said Ramsey, who dropped a would-be interception last week against the New York Jets. "Either I'm just all right or I'm the top dog. Pick a side. If I'm the top dog, but I'm just all right, that means he doesn't think that any corner in the league is good. And that's not true."AP Sports Writer Dave Skretta in Kansas City contributed to this report.
