Eric Berry returned to the field last season after battling cancer in 2014. He earned Comeback Player of the Year and put together a stellar Pro Bowl season. His outstanding play has carried over into 2016.
On Sunday against the Panthers, he picked off Cam Newton and ran it back for a touchdown on what was arguably the best pick-six of the season. He made seven Panthers miss – including Newton – on his way to the end zone, pulling the Chiefs to within three points after the two-point conversion.
The Chiefs would go on to beat the Panthers 20-17 after scoring 17 points in the fourth quarter, capped off by a game-winning field goal by Cairo Santos. Berry’s pick-six was the biggest play of the game and is the reason Kansas City got the win.
