(NEW YORK)— Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford is the AFC Defensive Player of the Month for October.

Ford tallied 13 tackles, five sacks, and four forced fumbles during the Chiefs' 4-1 month of October. 

The former 2014 1st round pick is on pace for his best season in the NFL. 

Ford recorded three sacks in Sunday's win against the Denver Broncos. 

The linebacker has eight sacks through eight games this season, which is two shy of his career mark (10) set back in 2016. 

Ford and the Chiefs take on the Cleveland Browns Sunday afternoon.

A high pressure system is starting to move away from northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas on Wednesday. This has given the region beautiful fall-like temperatures. Partly sunny skies, highs in the 70s and mild dew points are anticipated through Wednesday night.
