Safety Eric Berry returned a first-quarter interception 38 yards for a a touchdown Thursday, Sept. 19 to jump-start a 26-16 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: The Chiefs entered the week as fantasy's third-best defense/special teams and piled on big-time Thursday night with 5 turnovers (2 interceptions, 3 fumble recoveries), 5 sacks and Berry's TD return off a tipped Michael Vick pass. K.C. clearly has shot up into must-start territory, especially when factoring in that its next 3 games are against the Giants, Titans and Raiders.
