It’s fitting that the Kansas City Chiefs scored 29 points in this game because that is Eric Berry’s number. This will be remembered as the Eric Berry game because he scored on a pick-six and then won the game on a two-point conversion attempt returned for a touchdown.
What I might remember more than that is just how damn inspiring this dude is. He talked with CBS Sports’ Jamie Erdahl after the game on what this game means.
“The last time I came home midseason was to get treatment for cancer,” Berry said. “Now I’m here to play a game. I take pride in things a lot of people might take for granted. The little things, just being here and being able to play, being on this turf and have my family present, I went through so much so having them and my teammates support, it means a lot.”
This guy. He’s even inspiring when talking about football.
“It’s all about the process,” Berry said. “It’s never about the opponent. We know they’re a good team. Can’t do anything about that. The only thing I can control and only thing we can control as a team is our attitude and our effort and our preparation. Focus on the process and let the other part handle itself.”
There’s no way he plays anywhere but Kansas City next year, right?
