The Cardinals earned the No. 2 seed in the NFC behind the Carolina Panthers and watched the NFC Wild Card from home as they earned a bye. The No. 5 seeded Packers went into Washington D.C and defeated the Redskins at FedExField to move onto the second weekend of the NFL playoffs. According to TiqIQ.com, the average ticket price for entrance into the University of Phoenix Stadium is $261.42 with a get-in price of $99 and the prices and still showing signs of decline. On January 10th the average ticket price was $383.90 but fell for three consecutive days before evening out.

If the Cardinals and Panthers both prevail, the Cardinals will head to Bank of America Stadium to be within one win of attending Super Bowl 50.
