Osi Umenyiora Is NFC Defensive Player of The Month

New York Giants fans have noticed that Osi Umenyiora is back to his old self, terrorizing NFL quarterbacks. Seems the rest of the league has noticed, as well, since Umenyiora has been named NFC Defensive Player of the Month for October.In four games last month - all Giants victories - Umenyiora had 18 tackles (10 solo), including 7.0 sacks and six forced fumbles. Umenyiora had three consecutive multiple-sack games in October: he had 3.0 sacks vs. Chicago, 2.0 at Houston and 2.0 vs. Detroit. Prior to that stretch, the two-time Pro Bowler had never had multiple sacks in back-to-back games.

He also forced two fumbles in each of those three games.
