A homeless man is being credited with helping a member of the Kansas City Chiefs get to Arrowhead Stadium in time for Saturday’s playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts,
Thirty-one-year-old Dave Cochran helped free at least five stranded vehicles along U.S. Highway 40 on Saturday. One of those drivers who was helped by Cochran was Chiefs offensive lineman Jeff Allen, who was on his way to the stadium for the AFC Divisional game against the Colts. Allen shared his story on Twitter :
Update: Despite the recent influx in people changing their name to Dave in the KC area lol, I was actually able to track down the Dave that helped me thanks to the power of social media and #ChiefsKindgom. Thanks for your kindness https://t.co/e4OkEg6AAw

Allen repaid Cochran with three free tickets to Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. Multiple other people have also reached out to help the man who had been living in his vehicle.
As for the game, quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 278 yards and ran for a touchdown to lead the Chiefs to a 31-to-13 victory over the Colts in Saturday’s AFC Divisional contest at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs will take on the New England Patriots on Sunday for the right to go to the Super Bowl. Kansas City last appeared in the AFC Championship Game following the 1993 season, and in the Super Bowl in 1970.
