A short time ago, Sports List of the Day checked who has the most interceptions in NFL history.

Let’s keep going on the defensive side of the ball.

Here are the Top 20 sack leaders of all time, thanks to pro-football-reference.com.

Long-time Buffalo Bill Bruce Smith is at the top of the pile – the only NFLer with 200 (on the nose).

There’s no one active within spitting distance.  The record looks likely to stand for at least a decade or more.
