Having lost four straight games, the Denver Broncos need a spark to get back into the playoff discussion - and it looks like Von Miller may be the man to give it to them.

In an ESPN interview this past week, the Broncos All-Pro LB and Super Bowl 50 MVP made it clear his team will beat the Arizona Cardinals when the two sides play on Thursday Night Football.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a must win, but we’re going to kick their ass, though,” Miller said. “Make sure you put that up there. We’re going to kick their ass. They’re going to get our best this week. Last week was a tough week, week before that, whatever, this week, Thursday night, prime time, they’re going to get the Broncos’ best.”

Despite his team's shaky start, Miller has remained a pass-rushing force this season, already notching 5.5 sacks in six starts so far.

The Broncos are 2-4, and have lost four straight games since starting the season with narrow wins over the Seahawks and Raiders.

Over the last two weeks, the Broncos became the first team to allow a 200-plus-yard rusher in back-to-back games in losses to the Jets (Isaiah Crowell) and Rams (Todd Gurley).

The Cardinals, who will be hosting the game, are 1-5 on the season and 0-3 at home this year.
