LB Clay Matthews Named NFC Defensive Player Of The Month

Posted Sep 30, 2010

Quarterback MICHAEL VICK of the Philadelphia Eagles, linebacker CLAY MATTHEWS of the Green Bay Packers and kick returner-special teamer COURTNEY ROBY of the New Orleans Saints are the NFC Offensive, Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Month for September, the NFL announced today.


OFFENSE: QB MICHAEL VICK, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

  • Vick completed 54 of 89 passes (60.7 percent) for 750 yards with six touchdowns and no interceptions for an NFC-best 110.2 passer rating.  The Eagles won both games Vick started.   
  • He led all NFL quarterbacks with 170 rushing yards and accounted for seven total touchdowns – six passing and one rushing. 
  • Vick posted a passer rating of at least 100.0 in all three games during the month. 
  • In Week 1, entering the contest in relief, he posted his seventh career game with at least 100 yards rushing and 100 yards passing, the most in NFL history.  He made his first start at quarterback since 2006 in Week 2 and passed for 284 yards and two touchdowns.  In Week 3, he threw for 291 yards and three touchdowns and added a 17-yard rushing TD.
  • In his ninth season from Virginia Tech, this is Vick’s first career Player of the Month Award.
  • He is the first Eagle to be named Offensive Player of the Month since DONOVAN MC NABB in September, 2005.

 

DEFENSE: LB CLAY MATTHEWS, GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Matthews led the NFL with six sacks during the month as the Packers went 2-1. 
  • He led the team in solo tackles (15) and also forced a fumble. 
  • Matthews had two games with three sacks in September (Weeks 1 and 2), becoming the first player in franchise history with at least three sacks in back-to-back games. 
  • He also became just the sixth player with at least six sacks in the first two games of a season since the sack became an official statistic in 1982. 
  • In his second year from Southern California, this is Matthews’ first career Player of the Month Award. 
  • He is the first Packers linebacker to be honored since NA’IL DIGGS in December, 2002.

 

SPECIAL TEAMS: KR-ST COURTNEY ROBY, NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

  • Roby averaged 25.8 yards per kickoff return, led the Saints with five special teams tackles and recovered a fumble as the Saints went 2-1 during September. 
  • He had at least 70 kick-return yards in each of the team’s three games in the month and his 25.8-yard average ranked sixth in the NFL among players with at least nine returns (three per game). 
  • Roby recorded at least one special teams tackle in every game and his fumble recovery of a muffed punt against San Francisco led to a Saints field goal in New Orleans’ three-point win.
  • In his fifth season from Indiana, this is Roby’s first career Player of the Month Award.
  • He joins TYRONE HUGHES (October 1994) as the only non-kickers to be named Special Teams Player of the Month in franchise history.
