Parker totaled two tackles and one sack during Sunday's 26-14 victory over Arizona.
Parker's sack of Josh Rosen was his first since the 2015 campaign. The quarterback takedown helped make for an otherwise disappointing stat line for Parker, who had averaged 5.2 tackles per game entering the Week 10 tilt. He'll have a good chance at reaching higher production Monday night against a high-powered Rams offense that should test the Kansas City secondary early and often.
Parker made nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 43-40 loss to the Patriots.
More pressure was on Parker this week while Eric Berry (heel) and Eric Murray (lower leg) sat out. Parker's performance ties tied his season-high tackle total, and he could be relied on again in Week 7 against the Bengals if Berry and Murray can't shake their injuries.
Parker recorded eight tackles (six solo), two passes defensed and one interception across 82 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Chargers.
Parker signed a contract with the Falcons this offseason after spending the majority of his career with the Chiefs, but was released by Atlanta during roster cuts. The Chiefs were quick to resign the veteran safety and it paid off, as Parker played every defensive down and secured a key interception off Philip Rivers in the third quarter of Sunday's victory.
After spending most of his career with the Chiefs, the 31-year-old safety signed a one-year contract to join the Falcons in June. He was then released by Atlanta on Friday, paving the way for a return to Kansas City, where injuries have taken a toll at safety. Parker figures to open the season in a reserve role.

Parker signed with Atlanta this offseason after logging over 1,000 defensive snaps for the Chiefs in each of the past four years. However, the veteran became expendable after the Falcons acquired fellow safety Jordan Richards from the Patriots on Friday. Now an unrestricted free agent, Parker shouldn't have much trouble finding a new home.
