KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are preparing for their first divisional bout of the season against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

These two have had some thrilling battles the past few seasons. In fact, nobody has played the Chiefs tougher in the AFC West than the Chargers.

With a win, the Chiefs could put a stranglehold on the division early in the season, putting them in prime position to win their eighth straight AFC West title.

Tickets are starting at $180 and float anywhere from $400 to over $1,000 to be seated in the lower bowl.
