Chiefs fans across Kansas City gather to watch the Chiefs take on the Bills

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs fans across Kansas City gathered together to watch the Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills.

In the Power & Light district, fans were cautiously optimistic before the game.

“I’m a little nervous, I’m not going to lie, but I think we’ll win. I think we’ll win by maybe six,” Chiefs fan Tyler Whittom said.

The Chiefs came out on top, defeating the Bills 27-24, advancing to their sixth straight AFC Championship.

With half an hour until kickoff, the entertainment district known for large Chiefs watch parties was not as full as some fans expected.

Isabella Tomelleri chalked it up to the weather but thought it would fill in. “I trust in the Kansas City fans for sure. I don’t think the cold’s going to stop them.”

At Captains Sports Lounge in the Northland, fans showed up early to claim their spots. One fan told FOX4 that she got to the bar four hours before kickoff.

Twiggy Still, one of the managers at Captains, said “We had people last night tell us they were going to show up at like 1 p.m. and it happened. And we had a full bar at like 2 p.m. for the first game and they didn’t go nowhere. They stayed the whole game.”

The bar was doing a raffle giveaway, they hosted party games during the commercial breaks and at halftime.

The managers told us that it’s normal for them to be as crowded as they were today. “Every week we throw down for the Chiefs games. But it’s been rocking and rolling all season. We love our people that come out here and see us.”

One fan told us that she had come from out of town to visit family. Born and raised in Kansas City, she’s a huge Chiefs fan but her husband roots for the Buffalo Bills.

While she’s at Captains, her husband is watching the game at their home by himself. “I left my husband because he’s a Bills fan. I had to leave him to come to Kansas City to root for my team.”
