The NFL has named Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill as its AFC offensive player of the week for Week 12.

Hill caught 13 passes for 269 yards and three touchdowns in the Chiefs’ 27-24 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This is Hill’s fourth weekly award win since being drafted by the Chiefs in 2016 and his first of 2020. Hill actually hasn’t won a weekly award since 2016, when he took home offensive player of the week in Week 12 and special teams player of the week in Weeks 14 and 17.

As of this writing, Hill leads the league with 13 receiving touchdowns and is second in receiving yards (1,021) only to Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf (1,039).

In the other AFC awards, Buffalo Bills linebacker A.J. Klein won defensive player of the week and New England Patriots kicker Nick Folk won special teams player of the week.
