The battle for the AFC West could be decided this weekend in Kansas City. The Chiefs will welcome in the Denver Broncos to Arrowhead Stadium for a matchup between two 9-2 teams. While both of these teams will easily make the playoffs, there is a lot on the line in terms of playoff seeding with these two teams. The winner will take control of the division and the No. 1 seed in the AFC. The loser will then be positioned to be the No. 5 seed and a Wild Card, making them have to play a game on the road in the first round.
Kansas City Chiefs tickets have an average price of $234, which is 57% above the average price for Chiefs home games this season. Denver has been one of the biggest road draws this season, but this game falls 7% below the average price of Broncos tickets for away games this year. The game has decreased 28% over the past week after both teams lost in Week 12. The get-in price, though, is just $65.
The Broncos and Chiefs faced each other just two weeks ago with Denver getting a 27-17 win, handing Kansas City their first loss of the season. The Chiefs followed that up by losing their second game in a row, this time to the San Diego Chargers. The Broncos, with a chance to gain a game on the Chiefs fell to the New England Patriots on Sunday night, leaving these two teams to have the same record heading into this game.
Neither team faces a difficult schedule for the remaining four games of the season, which could turn this into a de facto AFC West Championship Game. When you consider a home game in Kansas City for the Divisional Round currently has an average ticket price of $532, this game is at a fairly discounted price.
