ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos lead the NFL with 48 sacks, and all those crumpled quarterbacks can blame not only Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller but also Jack Del Rio and Peyton Manning.

Dumervil and Miller have 28 1/2 sacks, earning the league's most prolific pass-rushing tandem return trips to the Pro Bowl -- although they're determined to spend that all-star weekend preparing for the Super Bowl in New Orleans rather than enjoying the sand, surf and sun.

Miller's outlandish athletic ability and Dumervil's freakishly long arms that give him built-in leverage on every tackle he faces are two of the biggest reasons for the Broncos' league-best 10-game winning streak.

In their eyes, though, the credit for all these sacks goes to the team's two biggest offseason additions, Del Rio and Manning.
