As soon as it was announced that Ford Field would once again see a playoff game, fans were looking to secure tickets to watch their team take the field on their road to the Super Bowl. As a matter of fact, according to NBC Sports, last weekend's Rams-Lions game was also the most expensive wild card round ticket on record, and it looks like the fiscal trend will continue.

NBC Sports is reporting that Sunday's game has earned its spot as the most expensive divisional playoff game ever with ticket average ticket prices on the secondary market hitting $1,186, according to

I took a look myself, and as of Wednesday morning, January 17th, the cheapest tickets available were $550 per ticket located at the very top of Ford Field in the last row. If you want to be right in the thick of the action, seats in the front row of the end zone will run you a cool $ 3000 a seat.

If you're wondering how the cost of rooting for the Lions stacks up to prior divisional playoff games, the highest-priced divisional round game previously was last year’s 49ers-Cowboys game in Dallas, according to Kyle Meinke of Those tickets averaged around $650 each.

If you aren't ready to shell out big bucks for seats, you can catch all the actions on NBC  as well as stream the game on Peacock and Fubo. Kick-off is set \for Sunday’s January 21 NFC Divisional playoff game at 3:00 pm ET.
