Justin Houston is now intercepting passes

The Chiefs linebacker can do it all.

Apparently Justin Houston is not just a sack master.

The Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker came up with a big interception against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon. The Chiefs had the ball first and went three-and-out but Dustin Colquitt's punt was blocked and only traveled 22 yards.

So the Bucs offense had great field position and KC's defense needed a spark to stop them.

Enter Justin Houston.


Not only was it a great play but it came at the perfect time.

That's his first career interception. A penalty brought back the return -- he went over 40 yards initially.

Houston's biggest knock last year was his pass coverage -- he wasn't very good at it. But he slowly improved to the point where he wasn't a liability.

And now he's intercepting passes. Beautiful.

It's Game Time.
