A good Samaritan helped Kansas City Chiefs player Jeff Allen when he was stuck in the snow.

A random act of kindness has netted AFC Championship tickets for a homeless man named Dave who helped dig a Kansas City Chief out of the snow.

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 game.

Allen said "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."
