KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) -- Clear your schedule for Saturday, January 12!

The top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs first playoff game is slated for that day. Kickoff is set for 3:35 p.m. at Arrowhead Stadium, so there's plenty of time for tailgating ahead of time.

If you weren't able to get tickets at the box office and still want to go, they're running nearly $100 a pop right now on Stubhub. If you can't make it the game will be on NBC.

The Chiefs opponent has not been set yet. They will play the lowest seed left following the AFC Wild Card games this weekend. That means they will draw the Colts if Indianapolis upsets the Texans, otherwise, they will play the winner of the Chargers-Ravens game on Sunday.

Should the Chiefs win in the divisional round, the conference championships the following week will be right here on WIBW-TV, on Sunday, January 20, at 5:40 p.m.

We also have Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, February 3.

The Chiefs clinched the No. 1 seed on Sunday, routing the (no longer in) Oakland Raiders, 35-3. In the game, Patrick Mahomes became only the second quarterback in NFL to throw for 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in a season and Travis Kelce set the record for most yards by a tight end.
