Kansas City Chiefs rookie wide receiver Tyreek Hill was named the AFC's Offensive Player of the Week for Week 12. The Chiefs defeated the Denver Broncos, 30-27, on Sunday Night Football.

Hill became the first player since Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers in 1965 to have a touchdown receiving, touchdown rushing and return touchdown in the same game.

"They told me after the game and I was like, 'Man, that's great,'" Hill said. "Everybody is congratulating me, but it's more than just me out there on the field. I've got teammates, and those guys did a great job helping me weave my way through traffic and creating lanes for me to use my speed. I've got to give a shout out to all those guys just believing in me, motivating me."

Between receptions (9), rushes (1) and returns (3), Hill compiled a grand total of 169 yards on the day.

In addition to that, Hill hit a top speed of 22.77 miles per hour during his return, the fastest of any player in the NFL this season.
