[Kansas City.com] Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced that outside linebacker Justin Houston has been chosen AFC defensive player of the week after his impressive three-sack performance against the Jaguars.
“It’s a tribute to him,” Reid said. “I mentioned this to the team, I thought the best thing that he did was he complimented his teammates. He gets it. He understands that if you’re gonna have individual success, the fellows around you have also got to be doing their part.”
Houston totaled five tackles and three sacks in the Chiefs’ 28-2 win.
