Week 13 of the NFL season is complete. Here is how all former Arizona Wildcats around the league fared.

Nick Folk, K, New England Patriots

On a blistery Buffalo night when the wind was too much for New England to attempt more than three passes, Folk wasn’t the least bit phased, nailing both of field goal attempts from 41 and 34 yards.

The two field goals were the difference in New England’s 14-10 win over Buffalo, moving the Patriots to a near lock to make the postseason.

Folk has now connected on 31 of 34 field goal attempts this season.

Roy Lopez, DL, Houston Texans

Lopez played 38 snaps but had zero tackles in Houston’s 31-0 loss to Indianapolis. His reduced productivity Sunday may be related to a non-COVID illness that nearly sidelined him for the game.

Rob Gronkowski, TE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Gronk scored two touchdowns on four receptions for 58 yards in Tampa Bay’s 30-17 win over Atlanta.

He also gave the Arizona football program some exposure on Twitter Sunday. Besides the shirt, where we can a get those sunglasses?

Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, LB, San Francisco 49ers

DFF had a career-high four tackles in San Francisco’s 30-23 loss to Seattle. After missing a month of play between September and October, the Tucson native is turning into one of the 49ers’ most reliable options at linebacker.

Gary Brightwell, RB, New York Giants

Brightwell and the Giants are practicing at Arizona’s facilities this week, offering the rookie running back a nice homecoming.

The Giants are enjoying their time in Tucson.
