The National Football League informed the Chiefs on Thursday that QB
Cassel is just the second Chiefs quarterback to ever win the honor, joining QB Steve DeBerg who did it in September of ’90. Cassel is the first Chiefs player to be named AFC Player of the Month since RB Larry Johnson in December/January of the 2005 season.
Cassel (6-4, 230) completed 90 of 144 passes (62.5%) for 1,111 yards with 12 TDs and only one INT for a 111.2 passer rating in November. His 12 TD passes led the league during the month, while his passer rating ranked third in the NFL over that span. He has recorded three straight games with a 100.0+ rating and produced a pair of games with four TD passes in November. Cassel threw for a career-high 469 yards at Denver (12/5). He currently leads the NFL with a 6.81 TD percentage (min. 250 attempts) on the season. Cassel also has a +18 touchdown-to-interception differential, the second-best mark in the NFL.
