Despite going 1-4 in the month of November, the Green Bay Packers have seen a few positive signs, especially among their rookie class.
One such glimmer of promise comes from the team's first-round draft pick, cornerback Damarious Randall out of Arizona State. Randall recorded interceptions in back-to-back games (against Denver and Carolina), with his second pick putting the Packers' offense in a prime position to potentially score a tying touchdown.
Randall also recorded 24 total tackles over his five games in the last month and has brought some stability to the Packers' left cornerback position.
For his efforts, Randall was honored by the league today:

As Liu notes, Randall is also the first Packer to earn Rookie of the Month honors since Eddie Lacy did it in 2013 on his way to earning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
Congratulations to Damarious on this well-deserved honor!
