Mass State Police send funny tweet about Chiefs’ equipment fiasco
The Chiefs were in danger of having to forfeit their game against the Patriots on Sunday after their equipment was sent to the wrong location, and fans in New England may not be pleased to hear that the local authorities stepped in to help make sure that didn’t happen.
After their shoulder pads, helmets, and footballs were mistakenly sent to Newark, New Jersey instead of Foxboro, the Chiefs’ equipment arrived at Gillette Stadium more than an hour before kickoff. They got an assist from the Massachusetts State Police, who sent a funny tweet about the situation.
As much as we wouldn’t mind a forfeit for #PatsNation , but we did escort the delayed @Chiefs equipment from Logan to Foxboro. Game time can go as scheduled. #GoPats @Patriots @GilletteStadium @MikeReiss

Traffic can be pretty brutal going from Logan Airport to Foxboro, especially the day of a Patriots game. Had it not been for the police escort, it’s legitimately possible that the Chiefs would not have gotten their equipment on time.
We know how paranoid opponents have been over the years about the Patriots and their antics in Foxboro, but that apparently doesn’t extend to local law enforcement. Had it been up to Bill Belichick, the equipment probably would have been escorted back to Kansas City.
