Miller named DPOM for November

While he's being discussed among Defensive POY candidates, Von Miller, and the Broncos, continue to accumulate in-season accolades.

The dominant second-year player and 2011 DROY, who earned the Defensive POW honor for his Week 11 performance against San Diego, has been named the AFC's Defensive Player of the Month for November, it was announced today.

Officially credited with 20 tackles, eight sacks, ten tackles for loss, and three forced fumbles during four November games, Von also had two quarterback hits, 16 hurries, and 14 run stops in that span, according to PFF.

Niners DE Aldon Smith, one of Miller's competitors for DPOY, was named the NFC's DPOM for November.

Earlier, Peyton Manning was named the conference's Offensive POM for the month of October, and Miller's Week 11 honor marked the sixth time a Bronco had taken a weekly award.
