The Kansas City offense played more aggressively than usual on Sunday against the Falcons, and the Chiefs were rewarded with a one-point win.
2016 ScheduleAll times ET
The Chiefs executed an aggressive offensive game plan and put their trust in Eric Berry and their defense for a 29-28 victory against the Falcons.
The Chiefs have five wins in games in which FPI gave them less than a 50 percent chance to win. And that's only a part of their unlikely 2016.
Wilson skated untouched on fake punt TD
Per ESPN Stats & Info, the Chiefs picked up more yards before contact (55) on their fake punt for a touchdown by Albert Wilson than all other designed runs combined (46).
Eric Berry had quite the homecoming Sunday, notching a pick-six and returning a two-point conversion attempt to the end zone to help the Chiefs get a victory in Atlanta that he'll never forget.
Travis Kelce is awfully tough to tackle
Kelce racked up 80 yards after the catch Sunday, the second-highest total in a game by a tight end this season. He also has the third-highest mark of the year, and has now tallied 50-plus YAC in three straight games. (ESPN Stats & Info)

Punter Dustin Colquitt said he had no idea a fake call was on when Albert Wilson took the snap and ran 55 yards for a Chiefs touchdown. But he said he knew it was a touchdown as soon as Wilson got the ball. "The way that opened up in the middle I just started to head to the sidelines to get my gloves for holding (for the PAT)," Colquitt said.

Big numbers for Travis Kelce fantasy owners today...Although the Chiefs TE didn't get into the end zone, Kelce had 140 yards receiving on eight catches (17.5 yards a catch). He was a matchup problem all day for the Falcons defense.
ESPN Stats and Information
This season, the Chiefs have 6 wins in games in which they trailed by at least a TD, the most such wins in the NFL.

Chiefs beat Falcons 29-28 thanks to 2-point defensive conversion by Eric Berry after Atlanta scored a TD to go ahead 28-27 and was trying to go up 3. The ViewFromVegas is the Chiefs were probably going to cover anyway as 5-point road underdogs, but Berry's play made winners of their backers of +190 on the money line. The game went over the total of 50 points on the Falcons' touchdown.
Eric Berry returned an interception for a TD, 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.

Chiefs QB Alex Smith has wins this season over Philip Rivers, Andrew Luck, Drew Bree's, Derek Carr, Cam Newton and Matt Ryan.
