Note: Game statistics will show Defensive & Special Teams Tackles separately and be combined as Total Tackles on all statistical reports. Total Defensive Plays will be compiled and consist of the sum of Total Tackles, QB Sacks and Pressures, Interceptions, Fumble Recoveries, Forced fumbles and Pass knockdowns. Tackles for Loss are included in Defensive Tackles but shown separately as a specific item.
