We're one month in the 2015 season, and we've already seen brilliant performances from the league's best, some from breakout stars and at least one from a previously suspended icon.
Tom Terrific won his eighth AFC Offensive Player of the Month award for his undefeated work in September. He also won last year in October.
In three games under center for the Patriots after avoiding a four-game suspension, the New England quarterback completed 72.2 percent of his passes and threw for a league-leading 1,112 yards wuth a 119.6 passer rating. Brady has tossed nine touchdowns and still hasn't thrown an interception en route to three dominant wins.
Other September winners:
Talk about a quick start. In his first three games in the NFL, Lockett has returned two kicks for touchdowns, including one in his career debut. It won't be long before he gets the Hester treatement.
This former Duck can still fly. In his career debut, Mariota set a record by throwing four touchdowns in the first half alone and finished with a perfect 158.3 passer rating. He ranks eighth in the league in passing yards (833) and is tied for fourth with eight touchdowns.
Darby is taking to Rex Ryan's scheme nicely. The former Seminole already has two interceptions through his first three games and 13 total tackles.
