Charles Tillman named NFC Defensive Player of the Month

Jonathan Daniel

The defense continues to be the team's anchor as the secondary brings home top honors twice in a row.

The NFL's Director of NFC Football Communications, Randall Liu, is now reporting that Chicago Bears cornerback, Charles Tillman, was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Month for October. This makes the second Bears cornerback in consecutive months to earn this title, as Tim Jennings was the award winner for the month of September. Additionally, this is the third time in four months the honor has gone to a Bears defensive player, as Julius Peppers took the nod in November 2011.

So far in 2012, Tillman has recorded 2 interceptions (both returned for touchdowns), 5 pass deflections, 3 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery, 28 tackles and 6 assist. Add in the complete shutdown of one of the league's best wide receivers in Calvin Johnson, and Tillman is having an excellent start to his 2012 campaign.

Pro Bowl nods are starting to become more and more possible for the Bears defensive unit, so hopefully as the weeks continue, we will see this unit's dominance make more headlines.
