Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill named AFC offensive player of week, not special teams player of week

New, comments

Tyreek Hill had a touchdown rushing, receiving and on special teams in the KC Chiefs win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football. For that he has been named the AFC offensive player of the week. He is the first Chiefs rookie to win the award.

I wasn’t sure which award he would be up for - offensive or special teams player of the week. He had nine catches for 52 yards and the game-tying touchdown against the Broncos along with one carry for three yards which went for a touchdown (he ran right around Von Miller).

Justin Tucker, the special teams player of the week, had four field goals on Sunday. Tyreek had a kick return for a touchdown.
