For the fourth time this season, Garrett Wilson is your NFL Rookie of the Week.

The former Buckeye wideout hauled in a career-high 162 yards on eight catches for the New York Jets in a losing effort against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Wilson had 78 yards in the fourth quarter alone, including a 60-yard catch-and-run that represented his longest play of the season.

With that performance, Wilson has 790 yards receiving this season, which is just 54 short of Keyshawn Johnson's franchise rookie record (844) set in 1996.

Wilson previously earned NFL Rookie of the Week honors in Week 2, Week 8 and Week 9, and is now the Jets' first-ever four-time recipient of the award. With three 100-yard games this season, Wilson has the most by a Jets rookie.
