Ticket prices edge down for Packers playoff game
GREEN BAY - Ticket prices for Sunday's NFL divisional playoff game in Dallas edged down slightly Tuesday.
The Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys are scheduled to play at 3:40 p.m. Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The winner will advance to the NFC championship game.
Seat prices started between $300 and $312, depending on which website you visited, about the same as Monday, but standing-room-only tickets dropped about $13 per person, from $150 to $137.
Ticket prices tend to drop as games get closer and sellers are motivated to unload them.
Airfares, based on a Friday-through-Monday trip, were $1,000 and higher per person from Green Bay, $770 or more from Milwaukee, and from Chicago started at $464.
Here are some playoff-related events happening this week:
» Packers' Win It Wednesday contest will award tickets to Sunday's game, a Randall Cobb-signed jersey, a Packers custom jersey and Get Loud Lambeau prize package. The contest begins at 8 a.m. You can find contest information at @Packers on Twitter and at Green Bay Packers Facebook page.
