Chiefs’ Eric Berry wins AFC defensive player of the week

What happens when you intercept a pass and return it for a touchdown, score the first ever game-winning pick-two and single-handedly outscore three NFL teams in a week?

You win the AFC defensive player of the week award. That goes to Eric Berry who is coming off of arguably the best game of his career.

This is not the first defensive player of the week award for Berry, who joins Derrick Thomas, Justin Houston and Tamba Hali as the only Chiefs to win two in a year.

I ask again: Can you imagine this team without Berry? Nope.
