KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Chiefs fans hit Kansas City International Airport Friday to catch flights to New England for the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Patriots.

"I am very grateful, it's unbelievable," said Quinton Wilkes, who is traveling to see the Chiefs play.

Wilkes and his friend Caleb Hillen just went to cheer the team on in Houston. Now, they said they are headed to New England thanks to Hillen's grandmother. She forked out cash to pay for their trip, even though she couldn't come along.

"She called me when we were on our way home from the Houston game and I was just in shock," said Hillen.

Hillen said he is excited to see his team play at another stadium.

"I have watched the Chiefs go though some hard times and we finally made it past the first round of the playoffs, so it's good to be able to go to the games and it's good they are doing good lately," Hillen said.

The duo said if it wasn't for Hillen's grandmother they would be watching the game at home on the couch.
