NFL MVP, ROY and awards rankings: Is Eric Berry a defensive player of the year candidate? (Shutdown Corner)

If the Kansas City Chiefs end up doing some special things this season, they can point back to safety Eric Berry’s big day at the Atlanta Falcons as a big factor. Berry had a pick-six and also an interception on a two-point conversion that he returned for two points for his own team in a 29-28 win. No player has ever won a football game by himself, not even the quarterbacks who get credited for “wins,” but Berry gets about as much credit as one player could for what he did at Atlanta.
