10/26/15 - S Eric Berry recorded his first interception of the season in the Chiefs victory over Pittsburgh. He grabbed a pass tipped by Pittsburgh WR Antonio Brown in the middle of the field. For the cancer survivor, it was another marker along the road of his recovery over the last 11 months. "It would have been a big play if we didn't get the win," said Berry. "But getting the pick and helping the team get the win, I think that was a big part of it. We'll keep moving forward and seeing what we can come up with." Berry's last interception before Sunday was in December 2013 at Oakland.
