It’s four weeks into the NFL season and plenty of former Arizona Wildcats are continuing to make their mark in the league.
Let’s take a look at how UA alumni performed this weekend:
2017 Stats: 14 tackles, 5.0 TFL, 3.0 sacks
Reed continues to be a massive problem for opposing quarterbacks and offensive lines. He had the strongest performance of any former Wildcat, tallying seven tackles and two TFLs, including a sack. Atlanta, however, dropped their game to Buffalo 23-17. Reed now leads the Falcons in sacks (3) and TFLs (5).
2017 Stats: 13 tackles, 1 PBU
Parks had the best game of his young career statistically against Oakland. He notched a career-high six tackles and a deflected pass in the Broncos’ 16-10 victory.
Parks is continuing to see an expanded role on Denver’s defense and should continue to play a big part this season.
2017 Stats: 20 rec, 318 yds, 2 TD
Gronk continued to be a big target for Tom Brady. He had 80 yards on four catches in the Pats’ 33-30 loss to Carolina.
2017 Stats: 10 tackles, 1.0 TFL, 1 PBU
The 49ers- Cardinals game was very interesting, to say the least. Happy to say the Cards won 18-15 in overtime. and Mitchell recorded 2 tackles including a 0.5 tackles for loss.
Marquis Flowers, LB, New England Patriots
2017 Stats: 4 tackles
Flowers recorded a tackle during New England’s surprise 33-30 loss to Carolina.
2017 Stats: FG — 6-for-8, 50-yd long; PAT — 5-for-7
Folk had a not-so-typical game against the New York Giants. He missed two field goals from 46 and 49 yards. He made his other two attempts, including a 34-yard game-winner.
Golden did see the field against the Baltimore Ravens but did not record any stats. Pittsburgh easily won 26-9.
Scooby Wright, LB, Arizona Cardinals
The Cards signed Scooby from the practice squad to the active roster on Monday.
Foles did not see any action in Philly’s 26-24 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He has yet to see any playing time this season.
