Von Miller actually wasn't bad in his 'Dancing with the Stars' debut

Von Miller brought a taste of the NFL to the ballroom Monday when he made his debut on Dancing with the Stars. The Denver Broncos' star playfully worked an NFL press conference into the opener for his Denver-themed Foxtrot to Flo Rida's "My House".

Miller rocked the Broncos colors in a bedazzled blue three-piece suit complete with an orange tie and pocket square. The Super Bowl 50 MVP did not whip out any supremely fancy dance moves, but his synchronized segment of the dance with partner Witney Carson proved Miller has the skills to compete.

The judges awarded Miller a 21 out of 30 for the performance, which left him in the middle of the pack in the competition. He'll attempt to improve on that tally next week when the pairs perform a Latin-themed routine.
