Another week of NFL action is the books! Here’s a rundown of how all the Arizona Wildcats in the league performed.

Nick Folk, New England Patriots

Folk continues to be automatic, extending his made field goal streak to 17 on Sunday when he made a 45-yarder and a 36-yarder in the Patriots’ 27-20 loss to the Houston Texans.

Folk has not missed a field goal since Week 2. The 36-year-old is 17 for 19 on the season, placing him 15th in the league in field goal percentage. That’s his best mark since 2013 when he was a member of the New York Jets.

(On another note, field goal percentages are way up across the league this year, as 12 teams are making 90+ percent of their field goals. Last year, only five reached that mark.)

Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bucs’ offense has been erratic the last couple weeks, looking great then awful from one game to the next. Gronk was held in check on Monday Night Football, catching just two passes in a 27-24 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Tom Brady threw for just 216 yards and was picked off twice.

J.J. Taylor, New England Patriots

The undrafted rookie was inactive for the third straight week, despite being healthy.

Will Parks, Philadelphia Eagles

Parks played 25 snaps—14 on defense and 11 on special teams—and tallied two tackles.

Nick Foles, Chicago Bears

The Bears had their bye this week. Good timing after Foles was carted off late in the fourth quarter in Week 10 with a hip injury. Thankfully that injury isn’t as bad as it looks and he could play Sunday vs. the Packers, though head coach Matt Nagy hasn’t named a starter and it remains to be seen if Foles will practice Wednesday when the Bears get back to work.

Foles this season has completed 65 percent of his passes for 1,852 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions, good for a 81.0 passer rating.

Jace Whittaker, Arizona Cardinals

Whittaker was reverted to the practice squad and wasn’t in uniform in Week 10.

Dane Cruikshank, Tennessee Titans

Cruikshank was placed on season-ending injured reserve prior to Week 10 due to a groin injury.

Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, San Francisco 49ers

The Niners were off this week.
