New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was deadlocked in a tight battle with the Denver Broncos defense Sunday night, and any open shot a defender had at the gunslinger was taken without hesitancy.

For Von Miller, a relatively frustrating night of chasing Brady led to him launching at the quarterback and drawing a 15-yard penalty.

It certainly didn't look dirty, but was a really dumb play considering he position on the field and the possession, which would have shifted to third-and-long.
