If Von Miller ever wondered about how intense Peyton Manning was about doing things the right way as a player — he only has to refer back to 2013 for reminder.

During an interesting Sports Illustrated feature on the Broncos “Freak” — Greg Bishop detailed a story of a pissed Peyton Manning suggesting Von Miller be sent home for missing curfew.

Before he became the Super Bowl MVP — Miller went through a phase where he was busted for marijuana use, accused of sipping ‘Lean’ and generally just being a f*ck up during his first couple of seasons in the league.

According to the report — the night before the Broncos’ Week 16 game against the Texans in 2013 — Miller and a couple of other teammates went out clubbing and ended up breaking curfew.

Then head coach John Fox addressed it during a team meeting — and Manning suggested that all three players be sent home.

Fox relented, let the three guys play and the Broncos ended up winning the game 37-13. Karma is a b*tch — an Miller ended up tearing his ACL in the first quarter — missing the remainder of the season.
