Detroit, Los Angeles Drive Demand for 2024 NFL Playoff Tickets, Says TicketSmarter

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Jan. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 2024 NFL Playoff Schedule is set and the road to Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev., begins on Jan. 13. Seven teams from the AFC and seven from the NFC qualify for the playoffs. The top seed from each conference receives a first-round bye, automatically advancing to the Divisional Round and maintaining homefield advantage through the postseason.

NFL Playoff Teams

The Baltimore Ravens enter the NFL Playoffs as the No. 1 seed from the AFC. This is the Ravens’ first AFC North title since 2019. The Texans will host the Cleveland Browns in the first Wild Card matchup. Then, the Chiefs will host the Miami Dolphins, and the Buffalo Bills will face the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kansas City secured its eighth consecutive AFC West title and has won the AFC Championship in three of the last four seasons.

The San Francisco 49ers captured the top seed in the NFC after winning the NFC West for the second straight season. The Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the other three divisions. The Cowboys will face the Green Bay Packers in their first game, the Lions will play the Los Angeles Rams and the Buccaneers will host the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round. The Eagles are attempting to repeat their run to the NFC Championship a year ago.

NFL Playoff Ticket Prices

NFL Playoff ticket prices will largely depend on the importance of the matchup. For example, an early Wild Card Round game will be less expensive than a Divisional Round game. The Super Bowl is the most expensive game of the year with ticket prices often costing several thousand dollars for a single seat.

The Wild Card game in Detroit has the highest demand and highest ticket prices on the resale market. The Lions won their first NFC North title in 30 years, which is likely contributing to the excitement there. On the other hand, Kansas City is the least expensive game. The defending Super Bowl champions' sustained success and forecasted freezing temperatures create less urgency to purchase Kansas City Chiefs tickets.

Prices and availability as of Jan. 8. For up-to-date information visit the NFL Playoff tickets page on TicketSmarter.
