Stay Strong, Chiefs

Kansas City sports fans who are longing for a home playoff game, played by any local professional team, get their chance. As the Chiefs and Chargers battle for the AFC West title in a tight race the rest of the regular season, the Chiefs face a must-win proposition every Sunday. This week should supply an easy test when the Tennessee Titans come to town for a noon start at Arrowhead Stadium (1 Arrowhead Drive, 816-920-9400). Tennessee is playing out the season in a desultory manner, long eliminated from playoff consideration and fielding a backup quarterback. For the Chiefs, the hope is to continue the undefeated home form and look to the scoreboard with the (somewhat unrealistic) hope that the Chargers lose. Tickets cost $37.70 to $278.10.
