DirecTV's pre-game show for tomorrow Dolphins vs, Bills game is in question thanks to some local thieves.

A producer for the network's Rich Eisen Show went out to the parking lot at the Marriot Hotel in Miami Lakes to check on the production truck they had booked to help produce tomorrow's show only to realize it was missing.

Eisen himself tweeted about the theft.

Production trucks are generally giant vehicles filled with millions of dollars worth of equipment, which means the heist was particularly ballsy. The exact make and model of the truck wasn't immediately clear.

Update: Here's the exact truck in question.

According to Local 10, producers had rented the truck from Pittsburgh-based production company NEP. A rep for the company also confirmed the theft happened sometime between 10 p.m. last night and 6 a.m. this morning.
