The NFL play of the day comes to us via Tennessee great Eric Berry.
With his team trailing 17-6 in the fourth quarter, Berry picked off an errant Cam Newton pass. Berry then took it the distance for a touchdown. On Berry’s run to the end zone, he busted not one but two spin moves.

The interception gave the Chiefs their first touchdown of the game. Berry and Newton both come from Atlanta and both made a name for themselves in the SEC. Berry stared at Tennessee where he won the 2009 Thorpe Award for the nation’s best defensive back. Newton started at Florida before eventually making his way to Auburn, where he won a Heisman trophy.
The interception was his second on the season and the 12th of his Pro Bowl career. The pick six was the second of his career.
