Redskins linebacker London Fletcher has been named the NFC Defensive player of the Month for December.

During the month, the Redskins' defensive captain had 51 tackles, three interceptions, two sacks and four passes defensed as the Redskins went 5-0 during December and clinched the NFC East for the first time since 1999.

He was the only NFL player with three interceptions and two sacks in the past month. The 15-year veteran’s 51 tackles during the month were the second-most in the league.

It is the first time that Fletcher has received player of the month honors. He is the third Redskins defender to receive the award joining Wilbur Marshall (October 1991 and October 1992) and Marcus Washington (December 2005).
