The man who is considered the best in the league at his position, and a guy who erased all thoughts of a player named Josh Scobee were honored by the NFL for their performances throughout the month of December. Clearly, the two aforementioned players are Antonio Brown and Chris Boswell of the Pittsburgh Steelers.
What a month the two had. Boswell led all NFL kickers with 12 field goals made, and 51 total points in the month. Brown did well for himself too by 51 receptions and 642 yards receiving in the month of December.
An interesting sidebar to this story is how Antonio Brown won the AFC Offensive Player of the Month award for back-to-back months, winning the award for his monstrous November.
Antonio Brown is the 1st WR in NFL history to earn Offensive Player/Month honors 3 times & ties Jerome Bettis for most in #Steelers history.— Dom Rinelli (@drinelli) January 7, 2016
In fact, as pointed out by the Steelers PR staff, Brown is the 1st wide receiver in NFL history to earn the award three times.
This is Boswell's first time winning AFC Special Teams Player of the Month, but he did claim the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week earlier this season.
Individual accolades are great, but the Steelers look to achieve greatness as a team, which starts Saturday night in the AFC Wild Card round when they travel to play their AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals.
