Terrell Owens is making headlines once again this season, although this time he is doing it with his MVP caliber level of play. The Cowboy’s prolific wide receiver, is being honored by the NFL as the NFC Offensive Player of the Month.
Owens had an impressive November that saw him reel in 39 catches for 693 yards, and a whopping nine touchdowns. T.O. is one of the most dominating receivers in the game and leads the NFL with 1,250 yards and 17.2 yards per catch. Last month he tied Bob Hayes for the franchise record of most touchdowns in a game with four. He is also on the verge of shattering the Cowboys single season touchdown record. He is currently tied with Frank Clarke who held the record with 14 TD’s.
Terrell Owens is clearly having one of the best season’s of his career and with four games left to play, he is only 353 yards from eclipsing Michael Irvin’s single season record of 1,603 yards in 1995. T.O.’s personal career high in yardage came in 2000 when he led the league with 1,451 yards receiving. In 2001 he set his career high in touchdowns with 16.
While Tom Brady, Tony Romo and Adrian Peterson get most of the raves when it comes to choosing an Offensive MVP, don’t count out my sleeper pick, Terrell Owens. T.O. is a force to be reckoned with this season.
