SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Von Miller had some pretty good flashbacks when he arrived at Levi’s Stadium for the first time since winning the Super Bowl MVP here just over 18 months ago.

The stakes were far lower for a joint practice between his Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers than they were for that Super Bowl win over Cam Newton and Carolina in February 2016 but that didn’t stop the memories.

“Walking onto the field this morning, it’s a whole lot different,” Miller said. “It’s a lot more red than what it was last time. Before it was just gold and black and a whole bunch of white, all the Super Bowl stuff. It still had the same feel. San Francisco has always been good to me. The Bay Area has always been good to us. Throughout my whole career I’ve only lost one game here. Preseason, the Oakland Raiders, the San Francisco 49ers, I’ve only lost one game here. A lot of great memories for me, as a team and as an organization.”
