Cordarrelle Patterson: NFC Special Teams Player Of The Month

David Banks

He's only been in the National Football League for four games, but Minnesota Vikings' rookie Cordarrelle Patterson already has an award for his mantle.

Patterson has undoubtedly had an impact on the Vikings' special teams thus far. He has returned twelve kickoffs thus far in 2013, and leads the NFC with 33.8 yards per return (Devin Hester is second at 32.4 yards/return). He also took the opening kickoff against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field back for a 105-yard touchdown, tied for both the longest play in the NFL this year and the longest kickoff return in Minnesota Vikings' history.

Now, if we could just get the guy the ball on offense a little more frequently. . .

But, in any event, congratulations to Cordarrelle Patterson on being named the NFC's Special Teams Player of the Month for September. Hopefully it will be the first of many awards that the new #84 brings home.
