Thomas Davis named NFC defensive player of the month

It took some time, but TD finally got his recognition.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has been named NFC defensive player of the month, according to the team's official Twitter account.

November has been a spectacular month for Davis, who registered 35 tackles, as well as a sack, interception and a forced fumble. It brings his season totals to 89 tackles, and 4.0 sacks -- both of which are on pace to be career highs. The numbers are remarkable in their own right, but unbelievable when given the context of of his three ACL tears. It was unclear whether Davis would be able to play again, let alone be an impact player but he has become one of the team's most reliable defensive weapons.

Davis has been excellent in Sean McDermott's defense, stopping outside runs, covering tight ends well and emerging as the team's best pass rushing linebacker. Here's hoping this is the first of many accolades for Davis, who remains one of the team's most overlooked players.
