CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)

Carolina Panthers middle linebacker Luke Kuechly tied an NFL record with 24 tackles in a 17-13 win Sunday over the New Orleans Saints.

STATS has been tracking tackles - as listed by press box stats - since 1994. That's the season tackles became a recognized statistic in the NFL.

Kuechly matched the single-game high held by David Harris of the New York Jets. Harris had 24 tackles on Nov. 4, 2007, against Washington.

Kuechly has more tackles than any player in the NFL since coming into the league in 2012. The former first-round draft pick from Boston College also intercepted a pass by Drew Brees as the Panthers clinched a playoff spot.
