Cameron Wake Named AFC Defensive Player of the Month

Alex Trautwig

Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October, the NFL announced yesterday. Wake has been a dominating force all season, but really turned the play up another notch in October.

The NFL announced their October Offensive, Defensive, and Special Teams Players of the Month from the two conferences yesterday. Miami Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake earned the AFC's Defensive Player of the Month, becoming the first Dolphins defensive end to win the award since Jason Taylor in November 2006.

Wake recorded nine tackles and three sacks during the month, tying for the AFC lead in the month. He had one sack in each of the Dolphins three games during October, a month in which the team went 3-0. The Dolphins allowed just 12 points per game during October, the lowest average in the conference and second lowest in the league.

Wake had no sacks through the Dolphins first three games, but has had 7.5 sacks since, ranking him the top in the league over that span. He is currently second in the AFC on the season.

This is the first time Wake has been awarded the Player of the Month Award.
