Denver Broncos' outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Month for September.

It's the first time in Ware's career that he's earned the honor.

The Broncos said Ware is the only NFL player to post a sack in each game this season. In September, he passed Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Ricky Jackson into 13th place on the NFL’s all-time list with 130.5 career sacks.

Ware also had 11 quarterback hits in September—three more than any other player—and 10 tackles, the Broncos said.
