EDEN PRAIRIE (WCCO) — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for October, the team announced Wednesday.

Allen has been a bright spot on a defense that has struggled all season. Just in the month of October, he’s tallied eight sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 24 tackles.

Allen leads the NFL with 12.5 sacks and broke a Vikings’ team record by recording a sack in 10 consecutive games.

The honor is Allen’s second, and first with the Vikings. He previously received the award in October 2007 with the Kansas City Chiefs.
