Bucs' Martin named NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month



Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for October.

Martin, the first-round pick from Boise State, capped off the stellar month with a prime-time performance in Thursday night's nationally-televised win over the Vikings, racking up a career-high 135 yards on 29 carries (4.7 average). Martin also had a highlight-reel, 64-yard touchdown reception, for 214 yards of total offense.

Martin also had 76 yards on 13 carries against the Chiefs Oct. 14, and 85 yards on 16 carries against the Saints Oct. 21.
