Khalil Mack Wins AFC Defensive Player of the Month

A day after being named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week, Khalil Mack also earned recognition as the AFC’s Defensive Player of the Month.

Khalil Mack was recognized as the AFC Defensive Player of the Week twice in November, so it only is right that he also earns the award for the month.

Mack became the 10th member of the Oakland Raiders to win this award, with Charles Woodson being the most recent to do so in October of 2015.

Over the course of three games, Mack recorded 12 tackles, 4 sacks, 6 quarterback hits, 2 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries, 2 passes defensed, 1 interception and one touchdown. The Raiders went 3-0 in the month.

The All-Pro has overcome a slow start (statistically) and has come on strong during Oakland’s 9-2 start. At this pace, he will certainly garner strong consideration for the Defensive Player of the Year.
