KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- According to a report from ESPN, the Chiefs accidentally shipped a container of their equipment to New Jersey instead of where they are playing the Patriots today. 

At the time of publication, there were reports online that the container had arrived safely and thus averted a crisis for the Chiefs and their fans. 

The report said it contained 35 players' shoulder pads, helmets and footballs.

The report also says that the Chiefs are responsible because they forgot to take the container off the plane, so neither the Patriots nor the NFL are responsible.  

Their source said that if the Chiefs did not get the equipment in time, then they would have to forfeit the game. 

The container was expected to arrived at 3:30 p.m. eastern time, at the latest. The game kicks off at 4:25 p.m. eastern time. is now with you on the go!
