KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Justin Houston, Tamba Hali and the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs defense doesn't seem to worry about their place in history. Wins are more important to them.

If they stopped to take stock through the first six weeks, they might be surprised.

After piling up 10 sacks in a win over the Raiders last Sunday, the Chiefs now have 31 this season. That puts them on pace to not only shatter the franchise record of 60 set during the 1990 season, but the NFL record of 72 set by the `84 Bears.

The sack became an official stat in 1982.

Houston leads the Chiefs with 9{ sacks, tied with the Colts' Robert Mathis for the most in the NFL. Hali is fourth with 7{ on the year.
