State police escort truck containing Chiefs gear to Foxborough in time for Patriots game

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (WHDH) - Massachusetts State Police didn’t let their Patriots fandom get in the way of making sure Sunday’s game went on as scheduled.

Troopers escorted a truck containing equipment for the Kansas City Chiefs to Foxboro after the truck was running late to Foxborough for Sunday’s game at 4:25.

“As much as we wouldn’t mind a forfeit for Pats Nation, we did escort the delayed Chiefs equipment from Logan to Foxboro,” state police tweeted. “Game time can go as scheduled. #GoPats.”

The tweet came less than an hour after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the issue with the Chiefs equipment.

A few hours later, the Kansas City Police replied to the State Police, thanking them for the help.

“Thanks for the assist; we would for sure do the same thing for the Patriots … or would we …” the police tweeted.
