Draft Scout *Justin Houston News
12/22/14 - OLB Justin Houston picked up sack No. 18 on the season against Pittsburgh and he again holds the NFL lead for quarterback sacks, sitting a half-sack ahead of J.J. Watt of the Texans. Houston's performance is the second best pass rushing performance in franchise history and he's two sacks from matching the record of 20 sacks set in 1990 by Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas.
12/08/14 - OLB Justin Houston continues to maintain his NFL lead in sacks. He picked up two more against Arizona and has 16. That's the second-best sack year in franchise history, topped only by Derrick Thomas' 20 sacks in 1990. The NFL record is 22.5 sacks, by former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan in 2001.
12/07/14 - LB Justin Houston, who entered Sunday's game leading the league with 14 sacks, added two more against the Cardinals. After one of them he pulled up his jersey to reveal an Eric Berry T-shirt that he wore in support of his sickened teammate. "Me wearing that number and putting it on my shirt, I'm playing with him on the field."
12/01/14 - OLB Justin Houston picked up his 14th sack of the season Sunday, giving him 40 for his career. Houston became the Chiefs' second-fastest pass rusher to reach that total, doing it in 55 games. Only Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas achieved 40 sacks faster, doing it in 42 games. Thomas, Houston and defensive end Jared Allen are the only Chiefs pass rushers to reach 40 sacks in fewer than 60 games in franchise history.
11/24/14 - OLB Justin Houston goes into Sunday's game against San Diego leading the NFL in sacks with 18, a half-sack ahead of the Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. He's two sacks away from tying the Chiefs' single-season record for sacks with 20, held by Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas. Houston earned another spot in the Pro Bowl and he's months away from seeing the end of his contract and possible free agency.
Houston has impressed a lot of people with his play, especially his head coach and teammates.
"He stays out another half hour after practice just working different moves and the pass game," said Chiefs coach Andy Reid. "The two-and-a-half hours that he's out there, he's practicing his trade. So you respect that. There's a ton of hours that went into those sacks."
