The Patriots have hosted a number of marquee matchups this season at Gillette Stadium, and with that came a ton of excitement and anticipation for said games.

If you're going off of ticket prices alone, those games were the NFL's most popular this season., a website specializing in analyzing the secondary ticket market, says that the three most expensive tickets this season came for Patriots games at Gillette.

The Pats' divisional matchup with the New York Jets in Week 5 checked in as the most expensive ticket on the season for the Patriots and the rest of the NFL. Following closely behind were a pair of matchups with NFC East titans. New England welcomed Dallas to Foxboro in Week 6 for the second-highest price, followed closely by the New York Giants' trip to Gillette a few weeks later.

Prices are only expected to rise once the Patriots reach the playoffs, as tickets for the AFC championship are already going for an average of $571 on the secondary market.
