The 2020 NFL regular season is entering the final straightaway. Here’s how all the former Arizona Wildcats performed in the league this past week, in no particular order.
Nick Folk, New England Patriots
Though the Patriots were eliminated from the playoffs Sunday with a 22-12 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Folk had a prolific day, making all four of his field goal attempts. The longest was from 45 yards.
Folk surely would have preferred a few more (or any) extra point attempts, but his performance gives him 25 straight made field goal attempts and a 92.6 field goal percentage, the highest of his career.
Rob Gronkowski, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Gronk recorded three receptions for a total of 29 yards in Tampa Bay’s 31-27 victory over Atlanta. The longest catch went for 17 yards. The veteran tight end is all but sure to make another playoff appearance with his longtime teammate Tom Brady.
J.J. Taylor, New England Patriots
The rookie running back received one carry for two yards. It was Taylor’s first appearance since September 27, when he ran the ball 11 times for 43 yards in a 36-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.
Taylor now has 70 yards on 16 carries this season.
Nick Foles, Chicago Bears
Foles remains the backup to Mitchell Trubisky, who led Chicago to a 33-27 victory over Minnesota Sunday.
Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, San Francisco 49ers
Flannigan-Fowles did not record any stats in San Francisco’s 41-33 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Will Parks, Denver Broncos,
Parks earned three tackles in Denver’s 48-19 defeat to the Buffalo Bills. Parks now has nine tackles in two weeks with the Broncos, where he has been playing in the nickel formation.
Jace Whittaker, Arizona Cardinals
Whittaker remains on the Cardinals practice squad.
Brooks Reed, Tennessee Titans
Reed was recently promoted to the Titans’ 53-man roster but was inactive for their 46-25 win over Detroit.
Dane Cruikshank, Tennessee Titans
Cruikshank is out the remainder of the year due to a groin injury he suffered during Week 10.
