Hottest Games of the NFL Wildcard Weekend
The NFL Playoffs are heating up, with some of the league’s top teams competing at the Wild Card games this weekend. Saturday will see the Raiders at Texans and Lions at Seahawks; Sunday the Dolphins matchup against the Steelers, and the Giant will be at the Packers. But where do the ticket prices stack up? Let’s get into it.
At an average resale price of $178, a ticket to Raiders at Texans on Saturday provides the best value of any of the four Wild Card matches.
Interestingly, this is only a slight bump in pricing over what fans paid for tickets during the regular season. On average, fans paid $153 for tickets on the secondary market – meaning that this playoff game costs only about 15 percent more than a regular season ticket.
Additional good news for Texans fans who have not yet purchased their tickets is that prices have dropped nearly 20 percent over the past week. The get-in price for a ticket is currently $85.

Based on SeatGeek customer data, expect a heavy Texans home crowd with a few Raiders faithful in the mix. An overwhelming majority of shoppers have come from the state of Texas, with just three percent coming from California.
Compared to the last Wild Card game the Steelers hosted at home, Pittsburgh fans appear to be much more excited for this year’s matchup. Tickets for the Sunday matchup currently have an average resale price of $237, making it the second most in-demand matchup of any game this weekend. As a comparison, the Lions at Seahawks are averaging around $365, and Giants at Packers are at $201.
Interestingly, this year’s average resale price is right in line with what fans paid for Steelers tickets on the secondary market during the regular season. On average, a Steelers home ticket cost fans $253 during the 2016 season, just slightly below what these Wild Card tickets are reselling for.
