Offensive linesman Jeff Allen posted on Twitter that his car got stuck as he was heading to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Indianapolis Colts in Saturday's playoff.
Allen says "a nice guy named Dave," who didn't know he is a Chief, got him back on the road.
The Chicago native asked his 21,000-plus followers to help him track down the Good Samaritan so he could reward him with tickets.
Hundreds of people replied - many claiming to be Dave - and thousands retweeted the plea.
On Sunday, Allen tweeted that he has found the real Dave "despite the recent influx in people changing their name to Dave in the KC area lol."
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— Jeff Allen (@JeffAllen71) January 13, 2019
