The Buffalo Bills ran into some bus trouble Sunday while traveling to Arrowhead Stadium to face the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes broke the news Sunday that a team bus had a mechanical issue. Hughes' play-by-play:

The bus was traveling to the stadium more than three hours before kickoff.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that it was the first team bus. Another bus of players was set to leave the hotel 20 minutes after the first was slowed by an apparent transmission problem. The driver shifted the bus into manual and they've arrived at the stadium, Rapoport added. NFL Media's Albert Breer said the bus was stopped for 10-to-15 minutes before the driver got it moving, cruising at less than 10 miles per hour, per a Bills player's text message.

The bump in the road shouldn't hinder the Bills, but it's an interesting twist to their game day preparation.
