Odom wins AFC honor

Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker


Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Antwan Odom has been on a tear this season, and people are starting to take notice.

On Thursday Odom was awarded AFC Defensive Player of the Month by the NFL. He is leading the league with seven sacks.

Odom had one of the NFL’s most dominant performances of the season in Week 2, when he registered five sacks in Cincinnati's win over the Green Bay Packers. Odom has two multi-sack games this year.

The Bengals are 2-1 and will travel to face the Cleveland Browns (0-3) on Sunday.
