Jared Allen Named ‘NFC Defensive Player Of The Month’

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.

    Its amazing what low IQ players can do. Good thing he found his way to the NFL – because McDonald’s does not pay as well

    (by the way entertainers pay much less on their income as corporate leaders. Their 4th, 10th etc… millions are treated the same as their first. The “evil” corporate creators of wealth and jobs are taxed much more “progressively” on their income….Perhaps the occupiers are protesting in the wrong placed – they should be in Hollywood and NFL sites..)
