05:03 PM ET 09.26 | Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston led all NFL players in sacks during Week 3 of the regular season with 4.5 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The 4.5 sacks on Michael Vick brought Houston's season total to 7.5 - he had three sacks against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the season opener. Houston's current number ties him for second in NFL history throughout the first three weeks of a season and he can break an all-time NFL mark with two sacks this weekend against the New York Giants. If Houston can get to 9.5, he will have the most sacks in the first month of an NFL season, passing Mark Gastineau and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila's previous mark of nine. Regardless of whether or not he breaks the mark, Houston is off to a great start to his season and could have the single-season sack record in his sights if he continues to have success rushing the passer throughout the year.

Another good thing coming out of KC. That's a nice change.

Linebacker, Kansas City, Derrick Thomas. That's the only one I'll remember at this point in history.
