ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was named AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October, the National Football League informed the Broncos on Thursday.

This represents the second such honor of his career (November, 2012) as Miller joins former cornerback Champ Bailey as the only two-time Conference Defensive Players of the Month for the Broncos since the award was initiated by the NFL in 1986.

Miller helped lead Denver to a 4-0 record in October while totaling 14 tackles (9 solo), seven sacks (48.5 yds.) and one pass defensed. His seven sacks led all NFL players during the month of October as the fourth-year player helped Denver limit its opponents to league-low 258.8 yards per game during that four-game stretch.

For the season, Miller has recorded 28 tackles (25 solo), nine sacks (54.5 yds.), 10 tackles for a loss and one pass defensed in seven games. His 10 sacks rank second in the NFL and his six consecutive games with a sack represents the longest current streak in the league and ties for the longest of his career (2012 – Games 8-13).
