Luke Kuechly vs. New Orleans (12/22/13)
In a game best remembered by rain and a dramatic touchdown by Domenik Hixon to clinch Carolina’s first playoff appearance since 2008, Luke Kuechly put together one of the most dominating defensive performances in Panthers and NFL history.
Kuechly finished with 24 tackles, the franchise record and tied for the most in the NFL back to 2000 when official league tackle numbers became available. He also had an interception at the end of the third quarter.
The Saints had 81 offensive snaps, of which 12 were incompletions and seven were punts. So out of 62 offensive plays, Kuechly ended 25 of them himself.
