How do I get NFL Playoff Tickets?
Like the regular season, the majority of NFL Playoff tickets are sold to the home team's season ticket holders (with the Super Bowl being an exception). This has traditionally made it difficult for the countless fans who want to witness the excitement of playoff football, but do not hold season tickets. The secondary ticket market has solved this problem and provides the vast majority of fans with their best opportunity to purchase seats.

Wild Card Round
This year's Wild Card round featured all four of the higher seeds winning with relative ease. The No. 4 Texans defeated the No. 5 Raiders, and the No. 3 Steelers defeated the No. 6 Dolphins in the AFC. In the NFC the No. 4 Packers beat the No. 5 Giants, and the No. 3 Seahawks took down the No. 6 Lions.
The Divisional Round featured the top four remaining teams from both conferences. In the AFC the No. 1 seeded Patriots took care of the No. 4 Texans in the second half, while the No. 2 Chiefs lost on a controversial penalty to the No. 3 Steelers. The NFC saw the No. 1 Cowboys lose an incredibly thrilling game to the No. 4 Packers, while the No. 2 Falcons took care of business against the No. 3 Seahawks.
The conference championship matchups are set, and they feature three legacy NFL franchises, and a fourth team that has never won a Super Bowl. The first game on Sunday, Jan. 22 is the NFC Championship Game, which will feature the No. 2 Atlanta Falcons hosting the No. 4 Green Bay Packers. This will be a matchup of two dynamic offenses, with both quarterbacks - Atlanta's Matt Ryan and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers - in contention for the league MVP award this year. Following that game will be the AFC Championship Game, which pits the No. 1 New England Patriots against the No. 3 Pittsburgh Steelers. The Patriots have looked like the class of the AFC for much of the season, with Tom Brady returning from his suspension. But the running game of Pittsburgh, with the very patient Le'Veon Bell taking a huge number of carries.
