The AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs will have a special visitor - the commissioner of the NFL.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is on hand for this evening's game between the AFC's No. 1 and No. 2 seeds.

Raul Martinez of tweeted out video of Goodell's arrival.

"#NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell @nflcommish has arrived to Arrowhead Stadium for the AFC Championship game. #Patriots and #Chiefs," he tweeted.

Unsurprisingly, Patriots fans aren't happy with Goodell's arrival to the Chiefs-Patriots game, though it's not unexpected. Sports Illustrated's Michael McCann joked that there could be some deflated balls on the field for today's game, with temperatures being in the high teens. "Hopefully Goodell is aware that air pressure in footballs is impacted by temperature, and will drop during cold weather. Last time this came up, there was a year-long federal litigation involving a U.S. District Court and a U.S. Court of Appeals. It even led to a college course," he wrote.

Well played.

The New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs are set to kick off at 6:40 p.m. E.T.

The game will be televised on CBS, with the winner moving onto the Super Bowl, where either the Saints or Rams will await.
