An equipment container containing some of the Chiefs' shoulder pads, helmets, and footballs was not unloaded on Saturday, and instead came accidentally to Newark, New Jersey, where it is now punctually returned to Boston at 4:30 pm.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been stymied by Patriots coach Bill Belichick more than anyone else in the league, with the first half of both contests against the Patriots leaning heavily in favor of New England. If team can not get the equipment to the proper place before the game starts, they will be forced to forfeit.
The container also reportedly had the game bags of the Chief's 35 players.
"I never heard that before", a source told ESPN. Overall, this is the last thing you want to have happen when you're going to play the Patriots in Foxboro.
