Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller took to Twitter Tuesday to guarantee that his team will win Super Bowl XLVIII.
"You can post this where ever. Denver broncos will win the Super Bowl 2013 #4UJEREMIAH #IGUARANTEEIT58 if you are with us Retweet," Miller posted early Tuesday morning.
It turns out Miller had a reason for his prediction, as he explained on "The Herd With Colin Cowherd" on ESPN Radio. His younger cousin, Jeremiah, had recently emerged from a coma following a serious auto accident.
In the interview, he explained that his cousin inspired him.
"I was motivated by my younger cousin ... he got in a wreck about a week ago and he just came out of a coma a couple of days ago," he told the program. "His first couple of words was, they asked him a couple of questions and, of all the stuff to remember, he remembered that his cousin played for the Denver Broncos and his name was Von Miller.
"It just moved me and I'm motivated and I'm going to work extremely hard. Not like I haven't done it before, but this year it's just a little bit extra for me and I'm extremely motivated."
Led by quarterback Peyton Manning, the Broncos stormed to an AFC West championship and earned the No. 1 seed with a 13-3 record, but were handed a 38-35 double-overtime loss by the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional playoffs.
