Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley, DL Aaron Donald win NFC Offensive, Defensive Players of the Month

New, comments

JTG and AD have brought in some silverware for October.

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley and DL Aaron Donald have been named the NFC Offensive and Defensive Players of the Month, respectively.

It’s a fine representation of just how good the Rams have been this year en route to an 8-0 record.

Gurley was a beast on the ground in October with 462 rushing yards and seven (!) rushing touchdowns in four games punctuated by a 208-yard day in Denver in Week 6. He currently leads the NFL in rushing yards and rushing yards per game.

Donald meanwhile was perhaps even more impressive. His October included eight sacks, four of which came in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers alone. And his consistent harassment of Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was a central reason the Rams defense was able to stymie the Packers’ offense for most of the day.

Gurley and Donald follow Rams QB Jared Goff who was named NFC Offensive Player of the Month for September.

So congrats to JTG and AD for rackin’ up the awards!
