The NFL season keeps marching on. Here’s how all of the Arizona Wildcats performed in the league this past week.
Nick Folk, New England Patriots
The former Arizona Wildcat nailed a 50-yarder as time expired to give the New England Patriots a dramatic 20-17 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Folk has now made 19 consecutive field goals. His last miss came in Week 2.
He now has two game-winning field goals this season, the other coming against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football in Week 10.
The 36-year old has now converted on 90.4 percent of field goal attempts this season, his best mark since 2013.
Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Gronkowski posted his most prolific performance since returning to the league from retirement, with 106 receiving yards on six receptions in a 27-24 loss to Kansas City.
It snapped a streak of 14 straight games where Gronk had been under 100 receiving yards. The five-time Pro Bowler has 505 receiving yards on the year including four touchdown receptions.
The Bucs have lost three of their last four since starting the season 6-2.
J.J. Taylor, New England Patriots
The 22-year old rookie was inactive for the fourth straight week. He last played Sep. 27 in a win against the Raiders.
Will Parks, Philadelphia Eagles
Parks recorded one tackle in a 20-9 Philadelphia loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. He now has 13 tackles in his first season with the Eagles.
Nick Foles, Chicago Bears
Two weeks after suffering a nasty hip injury against the Minnesota Vikings, Nick Foles watched from the sidelines Sunday as Chicago, led by Mitchell Trubisky, fell to Green Bay 41-26.
With Foles still recovering from his injury, it’s unlikely he’ll get the start for the Bears’ next game against the Detroit Lions.
Foles has thrown for 1,852 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions this season.
Jace Whittaker, Arizona Cardinals
Whittaker was promoted to the active roster as a Covid-19 replacement and played 13 special teams snaps in Arizona’s loss to New England.
Dane Cruikshank, Tennessee Titans
Cruikshank is on season-ending injured reserve prior to Week 10 due to a groin injury.
Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, San Francisco 49ers
The rookie linebacker missed San Francisco’s 23-20 win over the Los Angeles Rams with a hamstring injury.
On the bright side, the Tucson native will get to return to his home state the next few weeks. The 49ers chose to play at State Farm Stadium, a detour from Santa Clara County, which has prohibited close contact sports amid a rise in Covid-19 cases.
