The New England Patriots might not have secured home-field advantage in the postseason, but as the No. 2 seed in the AFC, they are guaranteed to host at least one playoff game.
New England will host the AFC’s highest remaining seed on Saturday, Jan. 11, in one of the conference’s two divisional-round matchups, meaning the Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs or Indianapolis Colts will be heading to Foxboro.
Tickets for that game will go on sale for the general public Monday, Jan. 6, at 10 a.m. Tickets for playoff games cannot be purchased through the Gillette Stadium box office and are instead only available online via Ticketmaster or by calling 800-745-3000. Prices range from $100 to $230 per ticket, and customers are limited to four tickets per person.
The Patriots defeated the Buffalo Bills 34-20 in Sunday’s regular-season finale to improve to 12-4 and lock up a first-round bye. They have now hosted a playoff game at Gillette Stadium in each of the last five seasons and 10 of the last 11 dating back to 2003.
