The Seattle Seahawks will enter their second consecutive NFC Championship Game when they play the Green Bay Packers at home this Sunday. As Russell Wilson looks to lead his team back to the Super Bowl, he’ll have to outshine an ailing Aaron Rodgers and disassemble a Packers secondary that held its own against Tony Romo and the Cowboys last weekend. Just five days out, NFC Championship tickets on the secondary market will be cheaper than last year’s battle between the Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers at CenturyLink Field.
The average price for NFC Championship Game tickets on TiqIQ is $727.84, which is 8% cheaper than last season’s average of $791.40. The Seahawks defeated the 49ers 23-17 in the NFC title game one year ago, but prices have fallen on the secondary market for the team’s second straight appearance this season. Sunday’s cheapest seat is currently listed at $360, which is $30 more than last year’s get-in price.
The Seahawks and Packers last met in a Week 1 matchup in Seattle, where the Seahawks cruised to a 36-16 victory and further established their dominance in the wake of their Super Bowl XLVIII win over the Broncos. Four months after their last battle, the season is on the line for both teams when they meet on Sunday. Aaron Rodgers will be looking to enter his second Super Bowl, though Seattle’s Legion of Boom will be well prepared to foil any plans the 31-year-old has of flying to Arizona next week.
Though there is plenty of football left to play this weekend, Super Bowl tickets on TiqIQ have already exceeded the $3,000 average. Secondary market Super Bowl tickets have an average price of $3,351.92, which is strikingly similar to last year’s average of $3,375.88. Slated to be held at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale on February 1, the Super Bowl currently sees its cheapest ticket listed at $1,278.
Packed with two of the most explosive running backs in the league, the Seahawks and Packers will likely turn a lot of their attention to their run game in Seattle this weekend. Eddie Lacy struggled at CenturyLink Field in September and posted just 34 yards on 12 carries, but ended his season with eight touchdowns and another 978 yards from Week 2 onward.
Don’t expect Marshawn Lynch to enlighten the media with his game day plans, but fans can anticipate that Beast Mode will be in full effect when he takes to the ground on Sunday. Lynch posted 13 touchdowns and 1,306 yards in the regular season, solidifying his place as one of the most dominant running backs in the league.
Cheaper ticket prices to this year’s NFC Championship Game have hit the secondary market, but it’s not likely that the level of play will deteriorate when the Seahawks and Packers face off this weekend. The 12th Man will be on hand to help propel the Seahawks into Super Bowl XLIX while Rodgers and Lacy will look to punch their ticket to Glendale by way of Seattle on Sunday. Whether cheering at CenturyLink Field or from the convenience of the couch, a modern classic is in the forecast.
