Berry's 2 picks carry Chiefs to 29-28 win over Falcons

The Falcons will now be charged with an even bigger test in their bid to maintain control of the division, playing host to a very unsafe Kansas City Chiefs team on Sunday afternoon. Smith has one or less touchdown passes in five of his last six games.

The Falcons took a brief 28-27 lead when Matt Ryan tossed a 5-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Aldrick Roberson. With this win, the Falcons move to 7-4 and maintain their hold on first place in the NFC South.

This game is of a lot of importance for the Chiefs (8-3) who are now trailing the Oakland Raiders (9-2) in the race for the AFC West.

Atlanta came out swinging on its first possession, capping off an 81-yard drive with a Devonta Freeman touchdown. Even with a huge Thursday night showdown at home against the Raiders looming next week, the Chiefs can ill afford to overlook the Falcons, especially on their own turf.

The Falcons have been one of the best teams in the National Football League when it comes to limiting turnovers with just nine all season (three fumbles, six interceptions).

Atlanta lost top cornerback Desmond Trufant for the season last week, and will also be without Adrian Clayborn after the defensive end had surgery on his left knee. The Chiefs also won on the road the first time these teams played, in 1972 at Fulton County Stadium.

At this point, any time you can get the Kansas City Chiefs and free points, you should consider taking them regardless of the matchup.

Following that, the New York Giants look to extend a six game winning streak against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are battling for top spot in the AFC North.

The Kansas City Chiefs look to continue their march to the playoffs. Berry, the hard-hitting safety who played at Tennessee, is from Fairburn, Ga.

BRONCOS OLB Von Miller had a team-leading 10 tackles, 3 sacks and 4 TFLs in Week 12 loss to Chiefs ( 17 ½ sacks, 14 TFLs, 3 FFs and INT in last 13 games, including playoffs).

Those weren't the only big plays for the Chiefs.

Then, there is quarterback Alex Smith and the Chiefs' offense, which can't be found anywhere in the top levels of National Football League statistics. Or pile up many offensive yards per game. Derrick Johnson leads the Kansas City Chiefs with 80 tackles, Dee Ford has 10 sacks and Marcus Peters has five interceptions. By the final whistle, he had 140 receiving yards on eight receptions, marking his third consecutive 100-yard game. As soon as Robinson made the team, his mother got the schedule and declared she would make every game close to home in Fort Valley, Ga., about 150 miles from Atlanta. This year they began 4-1, and yet they've not followed the mistakes of last year, with their longest losing run being only two games.
