Chiefs safety Eric Berry grew up in Georgia and returned to Atlanta for treatment after he was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2014, but he never played an NFL game in the state until Sunday.

It was worth the wait. Berry returned an interception for a touchdown in the first half and then became the first player to return an interception for two points when he picked off Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan on a fourth quarter conversion attempt. That turned a 28-27 Atlanta lead to a 29-28 Chiefs win and was part of a day that saw Berry “shed a few tears before the game … shed a few during the game and … shed a few after.”
