Reportedly facing a possible forfeit, the Kansas City Chiefs needed a police escort to get their equipment to Foxborough, Mass., in time for kickoff vs. the New England Patriots.
Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews confirmed that some of the gear was sent to the wrong place and had to be rushed to the stadium. It arrived about two hours before kickoff.
The Massachusetts State Police tweeted they helped the equipment get to the stadium from Boston's Logan Airport.
ESPN reported that an equipment container holding pads and helmets for about 35 players as well as footballs was somehow not unloaded Saturday — it is the responsibility of the visiting team to do so. Had the gear not arrived in time, the team might have had to forfeit, according to report.
Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.'s first season with the Browns hasn't gone as planned, and before Sunday's 27-19 home victory over Cincinnati, one report surfaced that he will undergo offseason surgery to repair a sports hernia that has bothered him since training camp. Another report said he wants out of Cleveland.
Following the game, Beckham had little to say about either subject.
"I'm not going to talk about any offseason stuff that's going on," said Beckham, who had only two catches for 39 yards. "I'm used to it."
Quarterback Baker Mayfield defended his teammate, saying Beckham's sole motivation is to help the Browns. He also took a shot at Cleveland's medical staff, saying Beckham's injury should have been treated differently.
