MLB D’Qwell Jackson Named AFC Defensive Player of the Month

Cleveland's D'Qwell Jackson has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Month. Jackson is 4th in the NFL in tackles, and 2nd among linebackers in the AFC in sacks.

Cleveland Browns linebacker D’Qwell Jackson has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Month for September, the NFL announced today.

In his first three games back after missing the previous 26 contests due to injury, Jackson amassed 30 tackles, 2.5 sacks, one pass defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery as the Browns posted a 2-1 record during the month. His 30 tackles are tied for fourth in the NFL, while his 2.5 sacks rank second among all AFC linebackers and is tied for fourth in the conference. The Browns defense has allowed just five touchdowns this season, which is tied for fourth in the league.

This is the first AFC award of Jackson’s six-year career. He is the first Brown to be selected as either AFC Defensive or Offensive Player of the Month since the award was established in 1986.

    This is outstanding. Another draft choice, too. With Rubin and Taylor in the middle, Cleveland is much better there — but still giving up way too much rushing yardage, IMO. Gotta respect the play of both Gocong and Fujita, too. With Sheldon Brown out — my guess is he will sit this week, we will see more of Patterson and Skrine. Patterson has showed up — and Skrine was a surprise. With Tennessee’s receivers being minus their big gun, the defense could have a decent day. But, Tennessee has a terrific defense, so far, and will be very tough. Hillis and Hardesty are going to have to have big days. But, if you notice one thing, it is that Robiskie is not being talked about at all — for any reason or any purpose. 3 weeks in and not a catch. Would not even know he played by looking at a stat sheet. For whatever reason, this is not acceptable. Cannot have a skill player whose major contribution is converting oxygen to carbon dioxide on the filed, I should think. Either it is coaching or inability to get open, but they gotta figure this one out or end it.
