News: Kuechly recorded a team-high 10 tackles (six solo) and one interception during Saturday's first-round playoff victory over the Cardinals.
Impact: Kuechly made massive contributions to the Panthers' playoff victory, helping limit the Cardinals' offense to meager totals along the way. In addition to his game-high 10 tackles, Kuechly nabbed a second-half interception and later tipped a pass that teammate Tre Boston picked-off. Overall, it was another stellar display from Kuechly, who finished the regular season with a league-best 153 tackles.

News: Kuechly leads the NFL with 145 tackles (93 solo) heading into Sunday's regular-season finale against the Falcons.
Impact: Kuechly has followed his Defensive Player of the Year honors from last season with another stellar campaign this term and appears poised to finish the year as the NFL's leading tackler. The Panthers' defensive captain has notched six double-digit tackling games, five of which came over a span from Week 2 to Week 6. The other double-figure performance came in Carolina's previous game versus Atlanta this season, when Kuechly recorded 11 stops. With a playoff spot on the line this weekend, the IDP star should be geared up for another disruptive effort.
