London Fletcher, with a season-high 17 tackles, still leads the NFL

Linebacker London Fletcher was credited with a season-high 17 tackles Saturday against the Vikings, which gives him 163 on the season.

That’s not only the league-high, it’s also a new career-high for Fletcher.

“That’s just typical London,” said linebacker Ryan Kerrigan. “He brings it week in and week out. We could all try to emulate what he does on the field.”

Still, the 14-year veteran wasn’t doing much celebrating following theteam’s 10th loss of the season.

“It’s definitely a tough season for us,” Fletcher said. “We’ve been in lot of games. For one reason or another, we haven’t been there to win the close games.”
