Total Tackles and Assisted Tackles: 2016 NFL Season

While a high number of tackles can indicate a defensive player's ability to stop the ball carrier and avoid missing tackles, it can also indicate poor team defense and their inability to force the offense to punt the ball away.  The linebacker position is usually a magnat for higher than average tackles because they usually track the running back and drop into pass protection.

In 2006, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher recorded 25 tackles in a single game versus the Arizona Cardinals.
