Aaron Rodgers named NFC Offensive Player of the Month

Posted Nov 1, 2012

Quarterback AARON RODGERS of the Green Bay Packers, cornerback CHARLES TILLMAN of the Chicago Bears and kicker LAWRENCE TYNES of the New York Giants are the NFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Month for October, the NFL announced Thursday.

OFFENSE: QB AARON RODGERS, GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Rodgers completed 96 of 141 passes (68.1 percent) for 1,101 yards with 14 touchdowns and one interception for a 121.5 passer rating during the month as the Packers went 3-1.

  • For the month, Rodgers led the NFL in touchdown passes and was second in passer rating. He ranked second in the NFC in passing yards and completion percentage.

  • He threw multiple touchdown passes in all four October games, including six in Week 6 when he was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

  • Through the first eight games of the season, Rodgers has 21 touchdown passes. He is the first player in NFL history to pass for at least 20 touchdowns through his team’s first eight games in consecutive seasons.

  • In his eighth season from California, this is Rodgers’ sixth career Player of the Month Award.

  • Rodgers’ six Player of the Month Awards are tied for the most since the award was created in 1986. He is tied with TOM BRADY (Offense), BRETT FAVRE (Offense), BARRY SANDERS (Offense), BRUCE SMITH (Defense) and STEVE YOUNG (Offense).

DEFENSE: CB CHARLES TILLMAN, CHICAGO BEARS

  • Tillman had two interception-return TDs, two forced fumbles, five passes defensed and 23 tackles in October.

  • He was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week two times during the month (Weeks 5 and 7), becoming the first defensive player in franchise history to be honored in consecutive games.

  • Tillman had interception-return touchdowns in each of the first two games in October and he and LANCE BRIGGS became the first set of teammates to each record interception-return touchdowns in consecutive games.

  • Tillman’s seven career INT-TDs are the most in team history. In Week 7, he forced two fumbles and Tillman is the only player in the NFL with at least 30 interceptions and 30 forced fumbles since 2003.

  • During the month, the Bears posted a 4-0 record and led the NFL with five INT-TDs.

  • The Bears are the first team in NFL history with six INT-TDs in the first seven games of a season.

  • In his 10th year from Louisiana-Lafayette, this is Tillman’s first career Player of the Month Award.

  • This is the second consecutive month a Bear has been named Defensive Player of the Month (TIM JENNINGS, September). Tillman and Jennings are the only cornerbacks in team history to be honored with a monthly award.

SPECIAL TEAMS: K LAWRENCE TYNES, NEW YORK GIANTS

  • Tynes led the NFL during the month with 13 field goals and 51 points as the Giants went 4-0.

  • Tynes’ 51 points were 11 more than Pittsburgh’s SHAUN SUISHAM, who ranked second in the NFL (40). Tynes led the NFC by 17 points as Dallas’ DAN BAILEY finished the month in second with 34 points.

  • He scored at least nine points and had at least two field goals in all four October contests. He also had two games with at least four field goals, including tying his career-high with five in Week 8.
