Union Station is sporting its red.

Kansas City is painting the town red ahead of Sunday's big game.

The Chiefs host the Tennessee Titans at 2:05 p.m. Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Championship Game with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. It's the second straight year Kansas City has advanced this far in the playoffs, and with football fever in the air once again, metro motorists are seeing red everywhere.

Even some of Kansas City's most iconic architecture is lit up in vivid home team colors.

The towering Power and Light building downtown is beaming with pride.
