Garrett Wilson was the NFL’s best rookie in Week 2.

The former Ohio State wide receiver was named the NFL’s Rookie of the Week on Thursday after he caught eight passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner, in the New York Jets’ 31-30 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Wilson joins former Penn State wide receiver Jahan Dotson, who was also a finalist for Rookie of the Week honors this week, as the first two Rookies of the Week of the NFL season.

Two weeks into his NFL career, Wilson has caught 12 total passes for 154 yards and ranks second in receiving yards among all rookie receivers behind only Atlanta’s Drake London – the only receiver who was selected ahead of Wilson in the 2022 NFL draft.
