As the second week of the 2012 NFL Playoffs looms, ticket prices for the Divisional Round remain high. This week’s games feature eight teams, each with a dramatic storyline that has driven fans to dig deep into their wallets for a chance to see live playoff football.

New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers last played in the playoffs in 2003. Since then, their best regular season record was a measly 8-8. But this year, with a new head coach in Jim Harbaugh, the 49ers finished 13-3, securing a bye in the first round and a home playoff matchup against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. Tickets sold through SeatGeek for this game are currently averaging $403.22, making it the most expensive of the four games this weekend. You can get into Candlestick Park for $178 if you don’t mind sitting in the nosebleeds. The most expensive seat in the venue is currently listed on SeatGeek for $4127 and is in Lower Reserve Section 18.

Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens

The Niners haven’t been to the playoffs in 9 years, but the Texans haven’t been to the playoffs in….oh wait, they’ve never been to the playoffs. Since the Texans brought football back to Houston in 2002, the Texans have had exactly one season above .500, until 2011. Finishing 10-6 and winning the AFC South gave the Texans their first playoff berth in franchise history. After handily defeating the Bengals, the Texans travel this weekend to Baltimore to play the Ravens, who have made the playoffs in six of the last ten years, in the second most expensive playoff game this weekend. The average price for tickets sold through SeatGeek for the Texans-Ravens game Sunday afternoon is currently $360.12,. The cheapest seat in M&T Bank Stadium is in Section 519 and currently listed for $182 on SeatGeek, compared to the $2974 listing at the 50-yard line.

Denver Broncos at New England Patriots

After the Broncos’ stunning win last weekend against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Broncos will face the New England Patriots, who have won their division in nine of the last eleven years. After having arguably the most impressive game of his career last week, Tim Tebow will have to match his performance to give the Broncos a shot at defeating the Patriots in their backyard. Although Tebow has brought national media attention to the Saturday night game, average prices for this game are the third highest of the games this weekend. Tickets sold through SeatGeek are currently averaging $301.15, virtually the same price as tickets to last year’s divisional matchup between the Patriots and the Jets ($301.81). The cheapest ticket for the primetime game is in Section 340 and currently listed for $147, but seats on the field level will run you into the thousands of dollars.
