Where do Falcons past and present rank on all-time sack, tackle, and forced fumble leaderboards?

The Falcons are not known for their defense. Historically, that’s also been true, outside of brief stretches of dominance and brilliant individual performers.

Nonetheless, this team has some players on the all-time leaderboards for tackles, sacks, and forced fumbles, among others. There are names you would expect and names you will likely be very surprised by (the two cornerbacks below under our solo tackles statistic are particularly jarring).

Let’s get into it.

Solo Tackles

#83: Ray Buchanan, 638

* Why is this asterisk here? Because the tackle stat leaders on Pro Football Reference go from 1994 on.
