It’s not too late to get tickets to see what could be the last home game of the Saints this postseason.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints are set to kick off the new year by hosting the Minnesota Vikings at 12:05 p.m. this Sunday, January 5th, in the first round of the NFL postseason.

In a year where ticket prices for the Saints were at an all-time high, it’s not getting any cheaper to see Drew Brees and the rest of the New Orleans Saints play in the conclusion of the 2019 season. According to TicketIQ, the average ticket price on the secondary market to see a Saints’ regular season game in 2019 was “only” $274. Do you want to see the the Saints and Vikings this Sunday? The average ticket price has jumped to $408.

This might sound like a lot, and it’s definitely not an insignificant amount of money, but the Saints are actually one of the cheaper playoff teams and venues this postseason. Compared to the other seven teams either definitely or potentially hosting a playoff game in the first two rounds, the Saints are actually the 4th cheapest ticket available.

According to TicketIQ, the cheapest ticket on the secondary market for this Sunday’s game is $165, which would get you into the 600 terrace level in the Mercedes-Benz Super Dome. On the other end of the spectrum, you could pay upwards of $1,700 per ticket for seats in row one directly behind the Minnesota Vikings bench at the 50-yard line.

As the number three seed in the NFC, if the Saints are able to beat the Vikings on Sunday, they would be forced to travel to Lambeau to face Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round. Whoever wins in the Wild Card round between the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles would then travel to San Francisco to face the 49ers. If either Philly or Seattle were able to then beat the 49ers in the divisional round, and if the Saints could beat both the Vikings and Packers, that creates the only scenario where the Saints could host another playoff game this postseason run.

Unfortunately for the Saints, as long as the 49ers are alive, the path to the Super Bowl goes through San Francisco. That means this could very well be the Saints’ one and only home playoff game this year - and potentially the last home playoff game in the career of Drew Brees.
