Quarterback Case Keenum led the Minnesota Vikings to three straight wins in November en route to being named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month, the NFL announced on Thursday.
The honor is the first for Keenum, who recorded eight touchdowns (seven passing, one rushing) in that stretch as the Vikings (9-2) strengthened their hold on first place in the NFC North.
Keenum became the fifth Vikings quarterback to receive the honor, joining Brett Favre (2009), Daunte Culpepper (2003, 2004), Randall Cunningham (1998) and Warren Moon (1995).
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month after throwing for 833 yards with 10 touchdowns en route to leading his team to win all three of its games. Brady has received the honor on 10 occasions in his career.
Los Angeles Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward had three interceptions to be named AFC Defensive Player of the Month, while New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan received the NFC honor after collecting three sacks.
Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker made all six field-goal attempts and eight extra-point tries to win AFC Special Teams Player of the Month honors. Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein went 12 of 12 on field goals and 11 of 12 on PATs to win the NFC honor.
