WR Tyreek Hill Named AFC Offensive Player of the Week

The rookie had three total touchdowns against the Denver Broncos



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.
