If this holds up, I believe it will be an NFL record. I believe Urlacher holds the record with 25 tackles. Either way it was a heroic performance.

Is that the official count? Every where else I've heard 24. Regardless, he was a stud yesterday.

No sure, it popped up on my facebook page from a Panther fan site. They said after studying the film he was credited with 2 more tackles. I guess we'll have to see...

Apparently the league could adjust game stats sometime mid-week. Panthers PR says 26... We'll see...

Team stat depts are notoriously generous with tackles. Particularly assisted tackles.

I've seen 18 to 26 reported.

PFF said 17 solo, 5 assisted.

Goes to show, that accolades don't mean much to this team. They have their eye on the prize.

http://espn.go.com/blog/carolina-panthers/post/_/id/3344/the-24-tackles-of-kuechly?ex_cid=espnapi_public

He probably didn't go back and watch them all, but instead got them from a play-by-play somewhere. Looks like 9 solo tackles and 15 assists, which doesn't jive right with my memory of the game. I'm more inclined to agree with PFF's numbers.

Kuechly had his fair share of what I would consider true assists, where he got to the ball after somebody else, and I sure wouldn't penalize him for it because when you get to the ball as often as he did, I think it's one of the few times bulk volume means much stat wise. But he also had a bunch of plays where not only did he get to the ball carrier first, but had stopped forward progress enough that even though another tackler came in and made the tackle an "assist" for both of them, I'd consider it a solo.
