The resurgence of New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan is here and the savvy veteran has earned yet another Defensive Player of the Month award to add to his long list of career accomplishments.

Cam Jordan, 31, had a rather slow start to the 2020 season, but in recent weeks he has started to look like the Cameron Jordan we all know and love.

The Saints played five games in the month of November, and Jordan played great in every one of them, solidifying his title of Defensive Player of the Month for the NFC.

In the past month, the former first-round pick has logged 12 tackles, six tackles for a loss, 10 quarterback hits, and five sacks.

These numbers help keep Jordan on the NFC Defensive Player of the Year radar as he now totals 41 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, 13 quarterback hits, 18 pressures, five hurries, and six and a half sacks.

It’s been more of a “dirty work” style of season for Jordan as most of his impact has been felt by generating consistent pressure and winning blocks, but it’s nice to see him reap the rewards of a strong month today.

The New Orleans Saints currently sit at nine wins and two losses and have a shot at clinching a playoff spot for the fourth consecutive season on Sunday with a win and a Chicago loss. Jordan will hope to continue his excellence against the Falcons, Eagles, Chiefs, and Vikings in hopes of having back to back months with the award.

Jordan will likely be nominated to represent the NFC in the Pro Bowl for the sixth time this season if his great season continues.

Regardless of if he is nominated or not, one thing is for certain, Cameron Jordan’s impact on the defense has been felt as he’s seen numerous numbers of double teams on a weekly basis.
