NFL Announces NFC Players of the Month

The NFL revealed its NFC Players of the Month for November, and they include an already incandescent star transcending to a whole other level and a defensive end carrying on a rich family tradition.

On offense, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson takes home the much-deserved honors for his incredible 480 yards and three touchdowns on 29 receptions. Jefferson leads the NFC with an amazing 112.0 receiving yards per game this season, but listing his incredible stats undersells the incredible play-making he brings to his team; game after game, he adds chapters to what is already an iconic career. His fourth-down catch in the Vikings' Week 10 33-30 overtime classic against the Buffalo Bills will go down as one of the single greatest catches of all time.

On defense, San Francisco 49ers edge rusher Nick Bosa earns his flowers for his 10 total tackles, five tackles for loss, and three sacks across three games. Bosa has made his older brother proud since entering the league in 2019; Nick has totalled 36 sacks and two Pro Bowls in his 45 career appearances, and Joey has notched 59.5 sacks and four Pro Bowls in 82 games for the Los Angeles Chargers. They'll chase each other's greatness for years, perhaps all the way to the Hall of Fame.

As for special teams, Washington Commanders kicker Joey Slye gets the nod for his 37 points on 10 field goals and seven extra points. Slye missed only one kick all month for the surprising Commanders, helping them to a 3-1 record over their last four games.
