Bucs' Glennon wins NFL Rookie of the Month

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Mike Glennon won the NFL Rookie of the Month Award for November. Glennon is the first Bucs quarterback to win the Rookie of the Month Award since Shaun King in 1999.

Glennon isn't posting the flashiest numbers. However, the rookie's solid play has been one of the keys to the resurgence of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bucs have won three straight following an 0-8 start, with Glennon minimizing costly mistakes and building confidence by the victory.

The third-round draft pick out of North Carolina State threw for 247 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions during Sunday's 24-21 win over Detroit.

Lavonte David wins the NFC Defensive Player of the Week Award. David started the string of interceptions at Detroit that ended with five Bucs takeaways.

David also had 12 tackles, one pass defensed and one forced fumble in the win over the Lions. Defensive Coordinator Bill Sheridan says Lavonte David could win player of the week honors every week.
