If that hadn't happened, per National Football League rules, the Chiefs would have had to forfeit the game, and the Patriots would have come away with a 2-0 win.

The Kansas City Chiefs head to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on Sunday to take on the New England Patriots in a matchup that has turned into somewhat of a rivalry of late. Luckily for them, both Julian Edelman and Mohamed Sanu are expected to play on Sunday versus the Kansas City Chiefs, per Ian Rapoport.

Giuliani Wants to Take Information to Barr, Congress
While he was prosecutor general, Lutsenko privately met Giuliani twice this year: in NY in January and later somewhere in Poland. Ryaboshapka said last month Ukraine was deepening its probe into the founder of Burisma.

The container holding pads and helmets for about 35 players as well as footballs (each team supplies its own on offense) was somehow not unloaded Saturday - and it is the responsibility of the visiting team to do so. After all, this is the first time these two clubs have seen one another since that epic AFC Championship Game from a year ago that saw the Patriots beat the Chiefs in overtime to advance to Super Bowl LIII.

It was Kansas City's mistake and the team's responsibility; the Chiefs did not take the equipment off of its plane. Teams are generally in full uniform and warming up and hour before game time. If team can not get the equipment to the proper place before the game starts, they will be forced to forfeit. The Patriots, while boasting a strong overall record, are 2-2 in the last four weeks.
