What looked like a moment on trash talk from Broncos linebacker Von Miller apparently was a hoax, as a Broncos spokesman said the message in question isn't from Miller and he hasn't been on Facebook lately and the account in question has no affiliation with him or his representatives.

Here was the post, which was sent shortly after Baltimore beat Indianapolis on Sunday, setting up a Ravens-Broncos AFC playoff game next week:

Turns out, he says that account isn't his.

Miller sent a message through a Broncos spokesman that he did not post anything to Facebook and it's not his account. The account in question has many other mundane messages about Aggies football (Miller went to Texas A&M) and timely messages to Broncos fans. So it is a well done fake page.

So no need to get riled up Baltimore. Miller will do his talking on the field.
