Kansas City sports fans have gone from feeling blue to seeing red.

"I think people are really excited to see the Chiefs are winning and after the Royals high of high hopes and people are kind of over those times," said Jason Durbin, the VP of ticket operations at Overland Park's Tickets for Less.

Tickets for Less said the demand for Chiefs tickets spiked in the last few weeks thanks to the team's winning streak.

"We are seeing a lot more people looking for tickets," said Durbin. "We sold double as many tickets this past weekend as we did the weekend before."

Rally House locations across the metro are seeing a similar trend of red fever. And maybe it's because all those fans need something warm to wear to the last couple of games.

"There was a while where the red wasn't seen much around here so it's good to see those fans coming back and supporting their Chiefs," said Chelsea Petke with the sports retail store. "I am one of those fans who will sit in the rain and sit in the snow and sit in the cold and so anything that will keep you warm and keep you dry -  every hoodie, every hat, every scarf."

And every poncho in case the rain moves in during the last two games. But Poncho isn't the only "P" word on the minds of Chiefs fans across the metro and the country.

"It's going to be one heck of a time," said Durbin. "I can't imagine what will happen if the chiefs make the playoffs. It's going to be a crazy time."

Playoff tickets are already available on several websites, including Tickets for Less, however prices are still quite high.

As more tickets become available at the start of the year, cheaper prices should be available.

The Chiefs play the Cleveland Browns at Arrowhead Sun., Dec. 27 at 12:00 p.m. The team plays the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead at 12:00 p.m. on Sun., Jan. 3.
