Does this sentence contain a metaphor 'The quarterback threw the ball a mile.'?

We can assume that the quarterback didn't really throw the ball a mile, he just threw it a great distance, and it is an exaggeration to call that distance a mile, and that qualifies as a metaphor. Of course, there are also various science fiction and fantasy contexts in which that statement could be meant literally.

Why is sacking the quarterback called roughing the quarterback?

Sacking the quarterback is not, by definition, roughing the passer. A sack occurs when a defensive player tackles the quarterback when he is behind the line of scrimmage. Defensive players are also credited with a sack when they force a quarterback to run out of bounds while still behind the line of scrimmage. Roughing the Passer is a penalty call. Roughing the Passer occurs when the quarterback is stuck by a defensive player after releasing the ball or when a quarterback is struck in the head/neck region by a defensive player. So a defensive player can be called for roughing the passer while sacking the quarterback if he hits them after the q.b. has released the ball or if he hits the q.b. in the head/neck region during the tackle.
