Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson was rewarded for a stellar October

Oakland Raiders safety Charles Woodson continues to add impressive accolades to his Hall of Fame career and he didn't slow down during the month of his 39th birthday.

The National Football League announced Thursday that Woodson was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October.  This marks the fifth time that he has been named Defensive Player of the Month (NFC or AFC), tying him for the second most all-time, trailing DE Bruce Smith's six.

This is the first time a Raider has won it since linebacker Kirk Morrison won it in September of 2007.

Woodson was awarded the honor after starting all three of Oakland's games in October and racking up 19 tackles, three interceptions and four passes defensed.
