Kansas City Chiefs Safety Tyrann Mathieu has earned AFC Defensive Player of the Month Honors following a stretch in December where the Chiefs posted a perfect 5-0 month with wins over the Raiders, Patriots, Broncos, Bears and Chargers.
Mathieu had 24 tackles, one sack, five pass break-ups and one interception.
The Chiefs earned the 2-seed in the AFC playoffs and have a bye week before playing at Arrowhead Stadium on January 12th. If the Patriots beat the Titans than it will be New England traveling to KC for the divisional round. If the Titans win at New England, than the Chiefs will host the winner of Buffalo and Houston.
