You might have thought it was just a bad rumor the Bears had tackles in Sunday's 34-31 loss to Minnesota. But following review of the game film by the coaching staff, LB Lance Briggs was credited with a team-high 10 tackles, six of them solos.
S Brandon McGowan was given eight tackles, as was CB Danieal Manning.
LB Hunter Hillenmeyer 6
S Adam Archuleta 6
LB Brian Urlacher 5
DT Anthony Adams 5
DT Tommie Harris had only one tackles.
Briggs moved past Urlacher for the team lead in tackles, 55-54. Here's the skinny on Urlacher's performance. The last time he had less than five tackles in a game was against Dallas in Week 3 when he had three, and added two sacks. Previously, it was vs. San Francisco in 2001. That's not counting the season finale at Minnesota in 2005 when starters barely played. He had just five tackles against San Francisco last season and in the finale vs. Jacksonville in 2001.
