The NFL announced their players of the month for December and unfortunately leading the pack is Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning. However, the Kansas City Chiefs are proudly represented by Dexter McCluster, who was named special teams player of the month.
It’s perfect cap to a solid regular season for the Pro Bowl-bound McCluster. The shifty returner managed to snag the award despite missing a game against the Oakland Raiders. He ended up returning 12 punts for 232 yards and a touchdown.
The biggest game of the month for McCluster came in Week 14 against the Washington Redskins, when he took a punt 74 yards to the house and put up 177 yards total.
Now this weekend McCluster will get a chance to celebrate his award by taking advantage of the faster track at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy.
