Tyreek Hill became the first NFL player since 1965 to score a rushing, receiving and return touchdown in a game Sunday. Hill first tallied an 86-yard return on a free kick in the Chiefs’ 30-27 overtime win against the Denver Broncos. His receiving touchdown was the shortest but the most important. Hill’s 3-yard catch from Alex Smith tied the game at 24-24 with five seconds left to send the game into overtime.


Dez Bryant, wide receiver, Dallas Cowboys

Dez Bryant feasted against cornerback Josh Norman and the Redskins secondary Thursday as he led the team in receiving yards with 72. Bryant hauled in five receptions on seven targets on the way to a 31-26 victory against the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving. He made the most noise after the game when he found himself in a scuffle against Norman, which resulted in the two being pried off each other.


Dan Bailey, kicker, Dallas Cowboys

Dan Bailey made his only attempt, a 46-yarder, in limited action Thanksgiving day. He also went a perfect four-for-four extra-point attempts. Bailey is in a class of his own at the kicker position and continued his dominance in the Cowboys’ win.


Perrish Cox, cornerback

The Titans announced Monday they released Perrish Cox from the roster to promote Kalan Reed from the practice squad. Cox is still listed as a free agent.

He had a quiet day in his last game with Tennessee in a win against the Chicago Bear. Cox made three tackles and broke up what would have been the game-winning catch for the Bears. Emmanuel Ogbah, linebacker, Cleveland Browns

Emmanuel Ogbah had a solid game against the New York Giants, notching three tackles and one pass deflection in the Browns’ 27-13 loss. He also recorded a quarterback hit on Eli Manning. Ogbah has been a small bright spot in an otherwise dark 0-12 season for the Browns.
