We’re just over two hours away from the first NFL playoff game of the day and it’s showing once again why sports fans are crazy. Just a few hours before kickoff, Kansas City Chiefs fans are out in full force for today’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Now, that sentence by itself doesn’t seem odd, until you look at the conditions these fans are enduring. Snowfall from Friday night into Saturday morning made for a wintry tailgating scene on Saturday afternoon as fans gear up for the game.
A photo from the stadium shows just how nuts these fans truly are.
Check it out.
Tailgaters as far as you can see, which isn’t far today. But they’re here at Arrowhead, 3 1/2 hours before kickoff. In a snowstorm pic.twitter.com/far1Gt5A42

When your team finishes as the No. 1 seed in the conference and looks to avoid previous playoff letdowns, you can be sure fans would come out in full force. The snow is expected to die down before kickoff, but there could be flurries during the game.
Kansas City and Indianapolis kick off at 4:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
