That almost changed this Sunday after the Chiefs discovered that an equipment container full of helmets, shoulder pads, and footballs was not unloaded when the team landed in Boston for their game against the Patriots.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the container wan't unloaded from the plane, which then made its way to New Jersey.

Helmets line the sidelines of the Kansas City Chiefs during a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on August 19, 2011 in Baltimore, Maryland.

A mishap put the Kansas City Chiefs in danger of forfeiting their huge matchup Sunday against the New England Patriots, but they're expected to avoid that scenario. It's now expected to arrive sometime between 3:00 and 3:30 p.m. with kickoff between the Chiefs and Patriots being at 4:25 p.m. Teams are generally in full uniform and warming up and hour before game time. "If the Chiefs didn't have the equipment by the time the game started they would have to forfeit, per a source".

"I've never heard that before", one source told Schefter. The Patriots, while boasting a strong overall record, are 2-2 in the last four weeks.
