Chiefs' Justin Houston gets 47 of 50 first team AP All Pro votes

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

To nobody's surprise, the 2014 sack king was named to the first team of the Associated Press All Pro list. Justin Houston had 22 sacks this season, the second highest total since the NFL started tracking sacks. Houston deserves all the accolades that are coming his way this offseason. He received 47 of the 50 votes.

Ahem, three people did NOT vote for him?

Anthony Sherman was voted to the second team with 14 votes at the fullback position. He was behind the Packers' John Kuhn, who finished with 18 votes. Rodney Hudson received one vote at center while De'Anthony Thomas received one vote as a kick returner.
