Perhaps the biggest game remaining in the NFL’s regular season will be played between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field this Sunday. In a de facto NFC North Championship Game, the identical 11-4 Packers and Lions will battle for the title of divisional champion, an honor both teams have battled all season long for. With a win at home this weekend, the Packers would send the Lions to the Wild Card Game while they clinch a first-round bye. No matter which team claims the division, however, both have solidified a playoff spot and the Packers will play their first postseason game at home, where ticket prices have jumped considerably over season average on the secondary market.

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.
