Eric Berry Named AFC Defensive Player of the Week

It’s Berry’s second weekly award this season



Did you really expect anything else?

The NFL named Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 13 Wednesday morning after Berry's two-interception performance in Atlanta.

Berry's first pick came near the end of the second quarter. He returned it 37 yards for a touchdown.

Later in the game, in the fourth quarter, the Falcons had just scored to make it 28-27. Looking to extend their lead to three points instead of two, the Falcons opted for a two-point conversion.

Berry picked off Matt Ryan's pass and returned it 99 yards for the first "pick-two" in NFL history. Berry also had two tackles in the game.



This is Berry's second AFC Defensive Player of the Week award in 2016. Berry also took home the award for his Week 10 performance against the Carolina Panthers.

He is the NFL's reigning Comeback Player of the Year and a two-time first-team All-Pro.
