Best Answer

Tackles have been an unofficial stat for a long time. As a result, it is tuff to say who actually holds this record. Regardless, Willis had a fantastic rookie season and is still playing at a Pro Bowl level.

What is the single game tackle record for NFL football?

Since tackles are not an official stat, the coaches review all the film (numerous times no doubt) and decide how many tackles (solo/assist) each player had. According to this method, Patrick Willis does hold the unofficial record for tackles in a single season with 226 accredited. At 6'1", nearly 250lbs and running a 4.4s 40, it doesn't seem far fetched :)

Who has the most tackles in the NFL?

The NFL does not keep official stats (records) for most tackles for a game or season. I'm not sure why but I think it's because it's so subject to judgment. Figuring who gets a tackle and who gets the assist can be very difficult and easily argued. ----------- The most tackles I have ever seen credited to one player in a season is Tommy Nobis, LB, Atlanta Falcons. In 1966 he unofficially recorded 294 tackles, as a rookie. The unofficial season record, recognized by the league, is 214 tackles by Hardy Nickerson, LB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1993. 222 by Eugene Lockhart of the Dallas Cowboys back in 1989.
