Lions' Ndamukong Suh, Stefan Logan Receive Monthly NFL Awards

October was a pretty good month for the Lions, and it was especially good for defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and kick returner Stefan Logan. The two both received awards for their play during the month of October, with Suh being named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month and Logan being named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month.

During October, Suh had 14 tackles, 4.5 sacks, one interception, one pass deflection and a touchdown on a fumble return. No other rookie in the NFL has 4.5 sacks in the entire season, yet Suh had that many in the month of October alone. At this point comparing him with other rookies isn't even fair. He's quickly playing his way up to being on the same level as other elite defensive tackles in the league.

For Logan, he has had a kick return of at least 50 yards in each of the last three games. He took a kick back 105 yards for a touchdown against the Rams and put the Lions in position to score last Sunday by taking a punt back 71 yards against Washington. He doesn't just return kicks, though. He also covers them, and against the Packers he had two fumble recoveries on kickoffs. He pretty much does it all on special teams.

This is the first time the Lions have had two players win monthly awards at the same time since Roy Williams was named the Offensive Rookie of the Month and Eddie Drummond was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month back in September 2004.
