Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck lead Players of the Month

Print

Aaron Rodgers was a king in the month of November and the league has rightfully crowned him as such.

Named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month, the Packers quarterback guided Green Bay to a perfect 4-0 mark while completing 83 of 130 passes (63.85 percent) for 1,233 yards with 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions. For Rodgers, though, November was just another month at the office.

"Someone said something about us peaking too early," he recently told NFL Media's Michael Silver. "I don't know what that means."

In the AFC, Andrew Luck earned AFC Offensive Player of the Month after four pristine weeks of play that saw his Colts maintain their lead atop the AFC South.

Luck hit on 88 of 144 passes for 1,280 yards with 12 touchdowns and just two picks. Despite losing Ahmad Bradshaw in the backfield, Luck only grew stronger through the air, throwing for 400, 393 and 370 yards over his past three outings. During those games his touchdown count increased each week with three, four and five scores, respectively.

November is over, but fear not: We'll be watching these two passers for many more years to come.
