ATLANTA (AP) -- Former Tennessee safety Eric Berry tallied one tackle in his NFL preseason debut as his Kansas City Chiefs lost to Atlanta 20-10 Friday night.
Matt Ryan played two decent series. Matt Cassel played four average ones.
Both quarterbacks lacked solid protection in the preseason opener, but Ryan's Falcons got better play from their rookie reserves in the win.
Dexter McCluster, a second-round pick, made a few dazzling moves as a tailback and a slot receiver for Kansas City. But Dimitri Nance and Shann Schillinger helped put the Falcons ahead to stay early in the third quarter.
Nance, an undrafted rookie free agent from Arizona State, ran for a 3-yard touchdown to make it 10-3. Schillinger, a sixth-round cornerback, set up the score by picking off Brodie Croyle's throw and returning it 29 yards.
