November gets better and better it seems. With Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley setting records in his monthly approval rating by the fans and GM Scott Pioli on his way to do the same, it's only fitting that the NFL keep the good vibes continuing with the announcement that QB Matt Cassel has been awarded the NFL's AFC Offensive Player Of The Month award.

Cassel becomes the second QB in franchise history to receive the honors after QB Steve DeBerg did it in the first month of the 1990 season. It's the first time a Chief of any sort has won RB Larry Johnson did it in December of 2005 season.

Over the last month, Cassel has 12 touchdown passes to just one interception en route to a 2-2 Chiefs record. He completed 62.5 percent of his passes and threw for 1,111 yards. He had two four-touchdown games in that span including 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions over his last three games.

In short, Cassel's been pretty freakin' good and his top receiver, WR Dwayne Bowe, could also make a serious argument that he deserves this award.

In summary, it's a darn good time to be a KC Chiefs fan.
