This week was one of the busiest weekends for ex-Arizona Wildcats in the NFL. 

Rob Gronkowski hauled in his first touchdown catch since ending his retirement in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Green Bay Packers. Gronkowski's UA teammate, Nick Foles, has quarterbacked the Chicago Bears to two consecutive wins and first place of the NFC North division following Green Bay's loss. 

Find out how other ex-Wildcats and Tucson natives performed in Week 6 of the NFL season:
