Brown finished tops in the league with 144 tackles while adding three passes defensed and playing a career-high 1,098 defensive snaps.
Officially, Brown tied with Cleveland's Joe Schobert and Green Bay's Blake Martinez in terms of the tackle total. Brown almost never accrues meaningful numbers in other areas, as his career high in sacks is one (2016 season) and interceptions is two (2015). However, he's as steady as they come in the tackle world, with 109 or better in all four of his NFL seasons. Brown is about to be an unrestricted free agent, and even though he lacks elite speed or athleticism, coach Sean McDermott loves this type of player. It'd be a bit of a shock if the Bills let him get away.
Brown recorded 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
Brown saw a season-high 75 defensive snaps and made the most of the opportunity, reaching a double-digit tackle count for the first time since Week 11. His season total now jumps to 117 (66 solo), which is the eighth-highest total in the league.
It was the fourth time Brown has reached double-digit tackles this season. The 25-year-old has yet to record a sack this season, but his activity in the tackle department keeps him a consistent IDP performer. He saw 69 defensive snaps (93.0 percent) in the contest.
Brown recorded a team-high 10 tackles (five solo) against the Falcons on Sunday.
This is Brown's second straight 10-tackle week, and with fellow linebacker Ramon Humber (thumb) doubtful for Week 5, this kind of production is expected to continue against the Bengals.
