Tickets to this weekend’s Redskins game against the Seahawks may be sold out already, but you can still get seats. You just need to know where to look.

Playoff prices are generally about 30 percent higher than during the regular season. On the secondary market the sky is the limit and believe it or not, tickets for Sunday night’s regular season game against the Cowboys sold for more money than tickets to any of the playoff games next weekend.

Dennis Green was already hard at work Monday morning, trying to earn enough money to go to Sunday’s game.

“I’d pay, depending on where the seats are, up to $300,” he says.

Demand is high for the first home playoff game since 1999, but not high enough for Tom Bunting, a season ticket holder since 1969, to part with his tickets.

“Absolutely not,” he says. “This is what I’ve been waiting for.”

With the game sold out, many fans are turning to ticket brokers like Danny Matta, who says playoff tickets will actually be less expensive than Sunday night’s game.

“Washington and Seattle don’t have the draw as Washington and Dallas, but everybody’s going to want to be there if you were at the stadium last night,” he says.

On the NFL’s official ticket exchange, the cheapest ticket is $147 for standing room only, compared to $115 for the Ravens playoff game in Baltimore.

On Matta’s website, greatseats.com, tickets to the Packers game start at $125 and the Texans at $87.

Long-time Redskins fan Bob Hass will be there Sunday.

“I’m just glad to be a fan. I’m glad to be a part of it and I’m really glad I got a bunch of tickets,” he says.
