The best rookies in the NFL in September will get a chance to face each other the first game of October.
Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller was named the league’s defensive rookie of the month Thursday.
Sunday, he gets to try to stop Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, the offensive rookie of the month.
Fuller has three interceptions and two forced fumbles, stepping into an immediate void in the Bears defense upon the injury to veteran Charles Tillman.
The first-rounder had two of his picks in the comeback win against the 49ers in Week Two, showing he has a flair for the bright lights of prime time as well.
