The Latest on the NFL playoffs on wild-card weekend (all times local):
4 p.m. ET
The Chiefs have only won two home playoff games in franchise history, the last in January 1994, so perhaps there was some trepidation among fans about investing in a ticket this season.
Chiefs president Mark Donovan vowed that their game against the Titans would sell out, but there were still plenty of seats available late in the week.
And with an hour left before kickoff, the usual snarl of traffic getting into the parking lots was relatively light.
Several ticket brokers listed seats Saturday for less than $30 apiece, including the fees.

The NFL playoffs get started Saturday with a doubleheader starting in Kansas City, where the Chiefs will try to beat Tennessee for their first home postseason win in nearly a quarter century.
The fourth-seeded Chiefs won four straight games to cap the regular season and capture their second straight AFC West title. The Titans needed a win in their regular-season finale and some help to earn a wild-card spot as the AFC's fifth seed.
The nightcap features the Falcons visiting the Rams at Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles.
The Bills visit the Jaguars and the Panthers visit the Saints on Sunday, and the outcome of those games will determine whom the winners on Saturday will face next week.
