Tomorrow, the New England Patriots will face the Miami Dolphins on the road, trying to secure the AFC's number one playoff seed. While we do not yet know which seed the Patriots will eventually end up with, we do know that it will be either the first or the second. Therefore, we also know that the team will not play on Wild Card weekend and instead host a playoff game one week later.
Naturally, tickets for this game are a hot commodity - and a rare one: the Patriots have an enormous number of season ticket holders and many more on the waiting lists. Still, a limited number of tickets for New England's first postseason contest will go on sale on Monday, January 4, 10:00 a.m. ET.
Tickets will be available only through Ticketmaster; either online or via phone (800-745-3000). This means that no tickets will be sold by or at the Gillette Stadium ticket offices. Furthermore, due to the limited nature of tickets and the projected run on them, there will be a limit how many can be bought by each customer: one person can buy a maximum of four tickets. Prices for those tickets range from $100 to $229, as set by the NFL. The only acceptable form of payment is Visa.
The Patriots have an 13-3 home playoff record since Gillette Stadium opened in 2002. They will look to improve to 14-3 either on Saturday, January 16 or Sunday, January 17.
