The NFL has announced the NFC, AFC players of the month as well as the rookies of the month. The winners include three quarterbacks, three linebackers and two kickers.
Rodgers, who leads the league in completion percentage (71.8), is an obvious choice, although you could argue New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees deserves mention. Lee had a terrific month which included two interceptions, including one in the Cowboys' Monday Night Football victory over the Washington Redskins. Hanson set an NFL record this month playing in his 297th game with the Lions, the most for any player with one franchise.
Fitzpatrick is the surprise of the NFL, as are the 3-0 Bills. He has nine touchdown passes in three games this month. Jackson missed the last 26 games before this season and becomes the first Browns player to win the award in 17 years. Janikowski's month is best remembered for him tying the NFL record for longest field goal.
Not a bad start for either guy. Newton passed for over 400 yards in his first two career starts -- both losses -- and came back to win his third career start for the 1-2 Panthers. Kerrigan's career got off on the right foot when he returned an interception for a touchdown in his first game.
