y.The Denver Broncos' rookie edge rusher was honored as the NFL's top rookie defender for the month of October after collecting 16 tackles [url=http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-mitchell-trubisky-jersey]Youth Mitchell Trubisky Jersey[/url] , 12 of them solo, 5陆 sacks, five tackles for loss, 13 pressures, eight QB hits, a forced fumble and a pass breakup in five games last month.He joined Von Miller (November 2011) and linebacker D.J. Williams (December 2004) as the only Broncos to win the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month award."I'm nowhere near where I want to be," Chubb said Thursday. "I'm happy for the achievement, but ... I want to be 8-0 right now with multiple rookie of the months. This is my first one, so I'm still hungry to get more and for this team to get more wins."The Broncos (3-5) host the Houston Texans (5-3) on Sunday.Chubb said it took him a few games to get used to being chipped by tight ends and running backs."It's different because in college it's pretty much 1-on-1 the whole time," Chubb said. "I feel like I'm more comfortable now."And making quarterbacks uncomfortable.Chubb is only the seventh rookie since 1982 to record at least 5陆 sacks over a three-game span and the first since Aldon Smith of the 49ers did it in 2011.Miller said he figured his pass rushing partner would quickly hit his stride after his September struggles, especially in covering tight ends for the first time in his life.Miller compared Chubb to a prodigy ."When you talk to him, you're not really talking to a rookie. He understands the language," Miller said. "He may not be able to talk back and speak to you in the same language, but he definitely understands it and he's a quick learner, fast learner, mature beyond his age."I'm extremely excited about where he's at with his career and the hot start that he's had," Miller added. "For him to get Defensive Rookie of the Month is huge. Not too many rookies out there are playing like him. He's got two more months and Defensive Rookie of the Year is in the bag for him."Miller won Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011.Chubb has seven sacks at the midway point of the season , putting him on pace to challenge for the rookie sacks record of 14陆 set by Tennessee's Jevon Kearse in 1999.Miller said one of the first things he advised Chubb to do after the Broncos selected him with the fifth overall pick of this year's draft was to write out his goals.Among the goals Chubb scribbled down were "sack record, win Defensive Rookie of the Year," Miller said. "He even had goals five years down the road. A guy with that type of mentality and that work ethic [url=http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-eddie-goldman-jersey]Blue Eddie Goldman Jersey[/url] , he'll definitely get all of the goals that he wrote on his paper."It's become a race between Chubb and Miller, who has eight sacks, to get to the quarterback, like last week when they sandwiched Patrick Mahomes."I feel like every pass play we have an internal race to the quarterback," Chubb said. "We might not say it out loud, but we want to get there first."Notes: RB Royce Freeman (ankle) returned to practice but didn't participate in any team drills Thursday. ... S Su'a Cravens could be activated off IR Friday. "He's a guy who can play a (dime) linebacker position and also cover a tight end," coach Vance Joseph said. "I think his skill set and his body type will help us play better defense." ... Joseph said Jared Veldheer (knee) will replace sub Billy Turner at right tackle Sunday. The Broncos are also considering having one of them move to the left side occasionally to give LT Garett Bolles a break. Bolles has been whistled 17 times for holding in his first 1陆 seasons after leading the NCAA in holding calls his one year at Utah. ... With ILB Brandon Marshall still nursing a sore knee, the Broncos are preparing Alexander Johnson to make his NFL debut this weekend. The Chicago Bears are finally through the first half of their 2018 season and by the surprise of most, they find themselves in first place with a chance to extend their grip on the NFC North next weekend.While most viewed this as a “trap game” of sorts, the Bears capitalized on a chance to get back to a season-high two games over .500 and a chance to control their own destiny heading into the meat and potatoes of their schedule.The Bears extended their point differential to (+83) with a 32-point victory on Sunday but it likely wasn’t what most fans would expect if they hadn’t seen the box score yet. The team’s mantra of losing ugly continues to be a trend, even with a 41-9 victory.Even so, there was plenty to like in Week 9, so let’s dive into this week’s game ball session.CB Kyle FullerPhoto by Brett Carlsen/Getty ImagesIt’s safe to say that Fuller was not only the team’s best defensive player but the best player on the field for either side on Sunday.Fuller’s stat line of three tackles, three PBUs and an interception didn’t tell the whole story. Not only did he get himself an interception, he was the reason for both Adrian Amos’ pick and Leonard Floyd’s pick-six.The 26-year-old was all over the field today and continues to build on a good season, after a rough start through the first four games. One of the big reasons for that? He’s finally getting his head back around in coverage, which is allowing him to make plays on the ball.When Fuller’s eyes are on the quarterback, he’s a playmaker and needless to say, he showed that today, in a big way. After the Bears matched the Packers’ pricey offer sheet [url=http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-adrian-amos-jersey]http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/cheap-adrian-amos-jersey[/url] , expectations were high. I’d say over the last few games, he’s starting to live up to that contract and coming up big when the team needs it the most.Fuller’s ascension as a playmaking corner is what gives him this week’s game ball on the defensive side.Honorable Mention: OLB Leonard FloydPhoto by Brett Carlsen/Getty ImagesSpeaking of Floyd, he’s this week’s honorable mention with his strongest game of the 2018 season.He didn’t register a sack for the eighth straight game but all other aspects of his game were on full display in Sunday’s win. He played the run at an elite level, causing multiple short-yardage runs.Floyd was also more than adequate in coverage, as he blew up a screen and had himself a pick-six thanks for Fuller’s outstanding play at the line of scrimmage. The former ninth overall pick may not be lighting it up in the sack column but make no mistake, he’s playing well in other facets. It’s also worth noting that Vic Fangio’s defense requires his outside linebackers to do much more than just rushing the passer, which means stellar play against the run and a good ability in coverage. Floyd’s performance was good on multiple levels in today’s game. Now he must build off that as they get Khalil Mack back and hope that sacks start coming. The talent is there and now we are finally seeing some of the results in 2018.RB Jordan HowardThe offensive game ball was a hard decision this week. The Bears as a unit only had 190 total offensive yards, so it was slim pickings for today’s honor.Even so, Howard did more than enough to garner that honor. His overall numbers of 14 rushes for 47 yards (3.4 average) wasn’t overly impressive but he found the end zone twice against a very stout Bills defense.Howard’s involvement in the offense remains somewhat inconsistent, but it’s been evident over the past few weeks that head coach Matt Nagy is trying to get him more involved, even if it’s in sporadic situations.As a whole, the team’s offense only ran 45 plays, so there wasn’t a ton of room for flashy numbers, but with a 41-9 score, you’ll take those final results every time. As the weather gets colder and it becomes harder to throw the ball, I’d expect Howard’s role to expand but he showed flashes of his former self with his 18-yard touchdown, in which he ran over a defensive back before heading into the end zone.All in all, this was yet another performance for Howard where you can start to see light at the end of the tunnel for this running game. The Detroit Lions defense should be much easier to run on this coming Sunday, even with the addition of Damon Harrison.Rookie receiver Anthony Miller would have been the only other player that could have been under consideration for this week’s offensive honor. Miller led all pass catchers with five catches for 49 yards.
