Eric Berry Still Getting Over Playoff Loss To Colts

 

Blowing a 28 point lead in the playoffs has a way of staying with you.

Especially if you’re a three-time Pro-Bowl safety such as Kansas City Chiefs defensive back Eric Berry.

Berry, a former Tennessee Volunteer, discussed the Chiefs’ tough 45-44 playoff loss last season to the Indianapolis Colts on Monday afternoon with the media.

The Chiefs went 11-5 in their first season with Andy Reid at the helm, but the season ended in bitter disappointment when the Chiefs blew a 38-10 second half lead. The Colts, who were led by second-year quarterback Andrew Luck, scored 35 second half points to cap their historic comeback.

That loss, combined with their division rival Denver Broncos loading up on free agents, is serving as motivation to Eric Berry and his teammates this off-season.

The AFC West battle will be a fun one to watch this season as Berry prepares to go head-to-head with Peyton Manning and the Broncos for the division crown.
