(UPDATE - 1/5) After claiming top honors in the NFC North with a 12-4 record, the Green Bay Packers will now host the Dallas Cowboys in the Divisional Round of the postseason this Sunday. The Cowboys struggled early against the Detroit Lions in their NFC Wild Card matchup but were able to reverse their fortune in the second half, ultimately surmounting the Lions by a final score of 24-20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. America’s team now travels to Green Bay, where ticket prices on the secondary market have skyrocketed over the season average at Lambeau Field.
The average secondary price for Packers vs Cowboys tickets is now $301.72, which is 36.1% above the season average of $221.66 for Packers tickets on the secondary market and up 20.2% from last week’s average of $250.94. Sunday’s game owns a get-in price of $177. The Packers will look to claim their first postseason win since 2012’s Wild Card victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
Whether the Wild Card Game or Divisional Round Game, the Packers will play their first playoff game at Lambeau Field this season. Currently, the average secondary price for Packers tickets to either game is listed at $250.94, up 13.9% from the team’s season average of $220.31. Get-in price for the game starts at $172. With the current fifth seed in the NFC, the Packers would play in the Wild Card Game if the season were to end today. Instead, they’ll look to claim their fourth consecutive divisional championship this Sunday against the Lions.
Home field advantage has been essential to the Packers’ success this season. Green Bay is 7-0 at home this season and could take their eighth win over the Lions this Sunday. More importantly, Sunday’s game sums up the chaos that the NFC playoff picture currently looks like. With a win and some added help from conference contenders, the Packers could potentially seal the No. 1 seed while a loss on Sunday would drop them into No. 6 seed and into a Wild Card spot. The Packers will rely on the home crowd to see them past the Lions and into the second round, where fans can expect to pay a significant premium for tickets when their team begins their route to their sixth Super Bowl appearance in franchise history.
