AFC PLAYOFF RACE: Berry's PAT pick lifts Chiefs over Falcons, 29-28

AFC PLAYOFF RACE: Berry's PAT pick lifts Chiefs over Falcons, 29-28

ATLANTA -- Eric Berry returned an interception for a touchdown, and then brought back another pick for a 2-point conversion that gave the Kansas City Chiefs an improbable 29-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

The Falcons, rallying from a 27-16 deficit, went ahead 28-27 on Matt Ryan's 5-yard touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson with 4:32 remaining.

Atlanta decided to go for 2, looking to stretch the margin to a field goal. But Berry stepped in front of Ryan's pass and ran 99 yards the other way to give the Chiefs (9-3) their winning margin. It came after Denver stole a game in similar fashion last month, returning a blocked PAT for the winning points at New Orleans.

With the win, the Chiefs improved to 8-3, keeping them in the driver’s seat for the first Wild Card spot in the AFC.
