Stephen Hill Nominated For NFL Rookie Of The Week

After compiling five receptions for 89 receiving yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 48-28 victory over the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill has been nominated for NFL Rookie of the Week. The honor, which also features Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, New England Patriots defense end Chandler Jones, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin and Minnesota Vikings kicker Blair Walsh as nominees, will be handed out Friday.

Hill, the Jets' second-round NFL Draft pick from Georgia Tech, scored New York's second touchdown -- a 33-yard reception from quarterback Mark Sanchez -- that helped give the home team a 14-0 lead with 14 minutes, 53 seconds to go in the first half and added a 17-yard TD catch midway through the third quarter.

In his debut, Hill averaged 17.8 yards per catch and helped Sanchez finish the game 19 of 27 for 266 yards and three touchdowns.
