Chiefs 2016 schedule: How the Royals pennant race will impact your sports viewing

It's a good time to be a Kansas City sports fan. The KC Chiefs are expected to be a playoff contending team while the KC Royals once again look like one of the best teams in baseball.

With the Chiefs schedule coming out I took a look at which games will conflict with the Royals down the stretch. There are a number of games where the times will conflict. If the Royals are in a pennant race, I won't knock anyone for watching the Royals over a Chiefs preseason game.

Unfortunately, the Chiefs first three regular season games will have direct Royals conflicts. Better fire up that two screen set up in your living room.

Sunday, October 2 is shaping up to be a fun day - if the Royals are in the playoffs. It's their final regular season game in the afternoon while the Chiefs visit the Steelers on NBC Sunday Night Football that evening.

Check out the Chiefs 2016 schedule here and the Royals here.
