Chiefs' Justin Houston has 6 1/2 sacks

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston has been a big part of a resurgent team's 3-0 start as the defense sacked quarterback Michael Vick five times in a win Thursday night.

Houston sacked Vick 3 1/2 times and leads the NFL with 6 1/2 this season.

“There is no limit for him," nose tackle Dontari Poe said. “You can tell he wants it."

Johnson's big night came at the expense of Eagles rookie offensive tackle Lane Johnson.

“It doesn’t matter what everyone else thinks," Houston said. “We’re just going to keep rolling. We’re on a mission. We have a bigger goal in mind."
