KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs have a big game ahead of them Sunday as they head to Atlanta to take on the Falcons, and the game will mark the first time two of the team's players get to play in front of their hometowns since joining the NFL.

The last time the chiefs played in Atlanta was 2008. That was two years before the Chiefs drafted Atlanta-native Eric Berry.

Sunday will be Berry's first NFL game in his hometown.

Berry returned to Atlanta two years ago to be treated for cancer, and he's planning to wear a specially designed purple ribbon shoes to honor those who are fighting cancer.

Berry's agent posted the following photo on Instagram.

Berry's agent ended his post by quoting Berry saying, "Fear nothing, attack everything."

The game is also a homecoming of sorts for rookie Chris Jones.

Jones is from Houston, Miss., which is about five hours from Atlanta.

"I got like 30 cousins coming, grandmothers, my dad, my mom," Jones said. "So it should be very exciting for me."

The Chiefs kickoff Sunday against the Falcons at noon.
