Zach Wilson was named the NFL's Rookie of the Week for Week 16.

This marks the third time Wilson has won the award this year, and the second-straight week a Jet has won it - Brandin Echols was given the honor for Week 15, where he had a pick six in Miami.

Wilson had 91 rushing yards in the Jets' 26-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, the most ever by a Jet QB in one game - 52 of those came on his first quarter touchdown run. His 92.4 Total QBR was the highest among all quarterbacks last week. That also was the longest rush by a Jets quarterback in franchise history.

Elijah Moore won the award back for his Week 11 performance, when he had eight catches for 141 yards and a touchdown.

Only Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (four times) has more Rookie of the Week nods this year than the Jets quarterback.
