With two games to play, 49ers LB Aldon Smith and Texans DE J.J. Watt each have 19.5 sacks on the season. That is just three sacks away from the NFL single-season record set by Michael Strahan in 2001. Both players have emerged this year as dominant forces on defense and one of them could be the new record holder if they manage 3.5 sacks over the next two games.
Can they do it? Who will be the be the one to make history?
