How Arizona Wildcats fared in Week 6 of NFL season

Week 6 of the NFL season is in the books—or at least the games that feature Arizona Wildcats are.

Here’s a recap of how they fared.

Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Gronk scored his first touchdown since 2018—and his first TD as a Buc—when he caught a back-shoulder fade from Tom Brady in the 38-10 win over the Packers.

Gronk finished with five catches for a team-high 78 yards, his best game of the season so far.

Nick Foles, Chicago Bears

Foles didn’t have a great game, but the Bears continue to win, beating the Carolina Panthers 23-16 on the road to improve to 5-1.

Foles completed 23 of 39 passes for 198 yards, a touchdown and an interception—a QB rating of 70.3. He also scored on a QB sneak that put Chicago up 20-6 with 1:44 left in the third quarter.

ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson wrote that Foles played “solid, not spectacular football.”

“Foles sometimes makes bad decisions,” he wrote. “The veteran quarterback floated a terrible pass into tight coverage that Carolina easily intercepted in a key moment. Usually, Foles is smart with the football. The 31-year-old sees the field well and understands where receivers are supposed to be, and a testament to that is seven different Bears caught passes on Sunday. The Bears trust Foles. That’s unlikely to change any time soon — even though the offense leaves a lot to be desired.”

Will Parks, Philadelphia Eagles

Parks was active for the first time this season after missing the first five games with a hamstring injury. He had three tackles in a 30-28 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, seeing some snaps in Philly’s nickel package.

Parks is from Philadelphia so he had a large family contingent in the stands:

Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, San Francisco 49ers

DFF recorded a tackle in a special teams role as the Niners held off the Rams 24-16 on Sunday Night Football.

Nick Folk, New England Patriots

Folk made both of his field-goal attempts in New England’s 18-12 loss to Denver—one from 41 yards and one from 38 yards. He’s now 7 for 9 on field goals this year.

J.J. Taylor, New England Patriots

Taylor was inactive for the first time this season. Maybe that’s why the Patriots only mustered 288 total yards.
