Bills standout LB Kiko Alonso recorded 22 tackles during Sunday’s overtime loss to the Bengals, production that has him in the record books again:
-Alonso’s 22 tackles are the most in a single game by any player in the league through Week 6 (that’s 182 total games if you’re scoring at home).
-Colts LB Jerrell Freeman (43 total tackles) and San Diego S Eric Weddle (36) are the closest competitors left in the league to match or beat Alonso’s total (66) before the week officially ends at the conclusion of Monday Night Football.
-Alonso’s 22 tackles are the second-most recorded by a rookie since 2000 (Elias). Here are the top four:
