More than half the season remains, but Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict already has 74 tackles. Most defensive players wish they could have that many stops in a single season, let alone after seven games.

But there Burfict is, already on pace to blow right past the 127 tackles he had in 16 games as a rookie last season. If he keeps up his current pace of roughly 10.5 tackles a game, Burfict will end the year with 159. That's a mind-blowing stat.

Whether he hits 127 again or jumps to 159, Burfict has been a true tackling machine, and he's played well.
