Rams’ placekicker Josh Brown was named the NFC Special Teams player of the month for October. Brown converted nine of 10 field-goal attempts and all six PATs in October as the Rams posted a 2-1 record.
Brown scored 33 points and averaged 11.0 points per game, the most during the month among NFL kickers. His nine field goals tied for the most in October. In Week 6 against Washington, Brown converted all four field-goal attempts, including the game-winner from 49 yards out as time expired to give the Rams their first victory of the season. Brown kicked two field goals in Week 7 versus Dallas and was a perfect three-for-three the next weekend at New England. He scored at least 10 points in all three games during the month.
In his sixth season, this is Brown’s first career Player of the Month Award. He is the first Rams player to be honored on special teams since Jeff Wilkins in 2003 (December).
