Tyreek Hill was the first Chiefs rookie to win an offensive player of the week award two weeks ago. He followed that up with a special teams player of the week award this week.
The NFL announced the news that Tyreek is the AFC special teams player of the week recipient, along with this neat stat:
Tyreek Hill is the 1st rookie to win both Offensive & Special Teams Player of the Week Awards since Reggie Bush (2006) pic.twitter.com/sA2QES3iti— Randall Liu (@RLiuNFL) December 14, 2016

This reminds me of what Chris Jones said after the game. He said he doesn’t know why teams still kick to him but “now they have a clue.” Indeed.
