A Louisville reunion
In 2011, Miller and a young dual-threat quarterback named Teddy Bridgewater both signed with the Louisville Cardinals. While Bridgewater left after his junior year, the duo was still able to accomplish quite a lot during their three years together. The Cardinals finished with a top-15 ranking during their sophomore and junior seasons, and their sophomore campaign ended with a victory in the Sugar Bowl.
Paving the way
During Miller's time in Buffalo, he was a part of one of the NFL's most effective rushing attacks. As a rookie, Miller started 12 games at right guard, helping the Bills lead the league in rushing yards per game and yards per rush.
In Miller's second season, the Bills once again topped the NFL's rushing charts, averaging a league-best 164.4 rushing yards per game, nearly 15 yards better than the next-best team (Dallas, 149.8).
