Watch: Chiefs LB Houston's son excited as dad sets team sack record

Monday December 29th, 2014

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston entered Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers with 18 sacks this season. He finished the season with 22 sacks. While he didn't break Michael Strahan’s single-season record of 22.5 sacks, he did break the franchise record, which was previously held by Derrick Thomas.

After the game, Houston posted a video of his son that was taken after the record-breaking sack. The little guy was just a little bit excited.

I think my son was more excited than anybody when I broke the Chiefs record. Lol... #FaithB4Fame
