Chiefs, Falcons Preseason Opener Will Be A Homecoming For Eric Berry

When the Kansas City Chiefs head to the Georgia Dome to play the Atlanta Falcons, it will be a homecoming for Eric Berry.

Berry is from Fairburn, GA which is about 20 miles outside of Atlanta.

"It does feel a little bit different for me because I am going home to play in my hometown and (against) a team I grew up watching," he said, according to the Kansas City Star. "I’ll be playing in front of a lot of family and friends. I’m pumped about it."

The total tally of friends and family members at the game is expected to hit 150.

Berry has quickly become the most popular player on the Chiefs roster. It's ironic that they're going to play the team that has the player who used to be the most popular player on the Chiefs roster.
