Chiefs AFC Divisional Round Game Second Most Expensive On Secondary Market
The hottest team in the NFL rolled along in their first game of the NFL playoffs, as the Kansas City Chiefs took it to the Houston Texans on the road at NRG Stadium last Saturday, winning 30-0 in a game where they dominated from the opening whistle.
The Chiefs returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, led 13-0 at halftime and finished the Texans off by winning the second half 17-0. The Chiefs have compiled an 11-game win streak since starting the season 1-5 but the competition level is about to rise for their AFC Divisional Round game against the New England Patriots.
On Saturday, January 16th at 4:35 PM ET, the Patriots will host the Chiefs at Gillette Stadium. It’s the first playoff game for the Patriots, who earned a first round bye with the No. 2 seed in the AFC. On the secondary market, tickets to see the Chiefs is the second most expensive game of the weekend, only trailing the Carolina Panthers home game against the Seattle Seahawks. According to TiqIQ.com, the average ticket price is $371.30 with a get-in price of $159 compared to the average ticket price of $385.54 and get-in price of $150 for the Panthers game.
Chiefs fans looking to attend the game can use Hipmunk.com for flights to Boston, which is pricing around $475 for a round trip. Hipmunk has Boston hotels available to be booked starting from $83 per night, and can be near the airport or stadium to create the most convenient trip.
The Patriots were cruising along through the first half of the season but sputtered towards the end with injuries to key positions. The Patriots lost four of their last six games, but will have the services of Julian Edelman for the AFC Divisional Round Game, as Tom Brady’s go-to target missed the last nine weeks of the regular season.
There is only one scenario where the Chiefs would host the AFC Championship Game, and it is that the Pittsburgh Steelers would have to defeat the No. 1 Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field At Mile High.
