NFC DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF MONTH (October)
DEFENSE: DE AARON KAMPMAN, GREEN BAY PACKERS
· Kampman had an NFC-best 5.5 sacks in three games during the month as Green Bay posted a 2-1 record. The Packers defensive end, who ties for second in the NFL with eight sacks, had at least a half-sack in all three October contests. He finished the month with consecutive multi-sack performances, registering two sacks in a 17-14 win versus Washington in Week 6 and tying his career-high with three sacks in a 19-13 overtime victory at Denver in Week 8. Since the start of the 2006 season, the Pro Bowl defensive end leads the NFL with 23.5 sacks.
In his sixth season from Iowa, this is Kampman’s first Player of the Month Award. Kampman is the third Packers defensive end to be honored, joining Pro Football Hall of Famer REGGIE WHITE (Sept. 1998) and KABEER GBAJA-BIAMILA (Sept. 2001).
