Best Answer

The phrase "tackling in space" refers to a player making a tackle on a ball-carrier in the open field, relatively far away from other traffic (other players).

It's also often called "an open field tackle" meaning that the field is open for the ball-carrier, but the defender was able to tackle him anyway.
