Sharper is NFC Defensive Player of the Month

Posted by ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas

The NFL just announced that New Orleans safety Darren Sharper has been selected as the NFC’s Defensive Player of the Month for October.

Can’t argue with that one at all. Sharper had two interceptions that he returned for touchdowns in October and three total interceptions for the month. Sharper now has 11 career interception returns for touchdowns. That’s second in NFL history, behind Rod Woodson’s 12.
