This is one of the benefits of having the best defense in the NFL: Players get a lot of recognition. To add to Legwold’s tweet, DeMarcus Ware was the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for September.
Considering that Derek Wolfe was Pro Football Focus’ highest rated Bronco in the Broncos-Packers game, it’s hard to argue Wolfe didn’t deserve his award.
