Chiefs' Cassel is AFC offensive player of month

It's only been 20 years, but the NFL again saw fit to name a Chiefs quarterback as its offensive player of the month. That's what the league did with Matt Cassel for November.

Cassel completed 90 of 144 passes for 1,111 yards and 12 touchdowns in four November games. Those 12 touchdown passes led the league.

The Chiefs went only 2-2 in those games.

The last Chiefs quarterback to be so honored was Steve DeBerg, who was given the award in September 1990.
