Some of the top plays from Wednesday's practice

There were a handful of plays that stood out during Wednesday's practice.

But the best moment of the day belonged to safety Eric Berry, who intercepted a deflected pass from Alex Smith and then proceeded to zigzag his way across the entire field several times into the end zone.

After the play, Berry tossed the ball into the crowd of Chiefs fans, who were on their feet in the stands cheering throughout his entire return.

It was Berry's third interception of camp.

After practice, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that Berry will play on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals, although he didn't say for how long.

Another standout play from the defense came from another player making a return in 2015, linebacker Derrick Johnson.

For anyone that's had an opportunity to watch Johnson for some time, the clip below has become a staple of his game—shooting through a gap for a tackle for loss.

On the offensive side of the ball, there were three plays that stood out above the rest on Wednesday.

During the two-minute drill, the offense needed a big play down the field to put them in position to kick a "game-winning field goal," at least that's what the drill is intended to simulate.

Hopefully this simulation turns into execution when we get into the regular season because Jeremy Maclin showed exactly why everyone is so excited about what he can do for this offense with this play below.

The other top catch of the day was also from a former Missouri Tiger, receiver L'Damian Washington, who completely sold out as he made this leaping catch in 7-on-7 drills.

The best pass of the day came from quarterback Aaron Murray, who went deep down the field to rookie seventh-round draft pick Da'Ron Brown.
