BUFFALO (KDKA) - The NFL has a new record-holder for most consecutive games with a sack.

The Steelers defense came into their Sunday night matchup with the Bills at 69 consecutive games with a sack, tied with Tampa Bay.

Then, in the second quarter, the Tyson Alualu took down Bills' quarterback Josh Allen, making it 70 and dethroning the Buccaneers as the NFL record-holder.
