Are you counting down the days?

Not to Christmas, but that’s obviously just around the corner, too. Before that, however, is Saturday’s Chiefs-Chargers showdown at Arrowhead Stadium. The teams are tied atop the AFC West with a 7-6 record. The winner of the game will have the inside track toward being crowned the division champion.

And it’ll be played under the lights at Arrowhead, which is always a big deal.

But fans who plan on watching at home should be aware of one thing: the game will be broadcast on the NFL Network, which is a cable channel. However, there is good news.

At first, it seemed that the game wouldn't be shown on a local channel as well, but the Chiefs said it will also be shown on CBS (Ch. 5). So if you don't have cable, you can turn to KCTV-5.

Kickoff is at at 7:25 p.m.
