He's cheered for the Chiefs since before he could talk.

Now Jason Durbin and his Tickets for Less team are fielding calls out of their Overland Park office so fans can see the Chiefs play in the Divisional Playoff game, possibly the AFC Championship or even the Super Bowl.

"It's a huge opportunity," he said. "Since it is a once in a lifetime opportunity, we are seeing a lot of people interested in the tickets because you never know when it is going to happen again, and people don't want to miss out n the chance to see this in person."

So just how much will seeing the Chiefs take on the Patriots on their home turf set you back?

  • The drive from Arrowhead to Gillete Stadium takes a whopping 21 hours, without stops. While time isn't on your side, low gas prices are -- it'll cost around $200 to drive from KC to Foxborough and back.
  • Of course, flying can get you there a little faster. On American Airlines, it costs $342 round trip if you leave KC on Friday and come back Sunday.
  • And then there are the tickets - nosebleeds go for $252. Meanwhile, Chiefs sideline tickets cost $791. But, freezing rain is in the forecast, so if you want to watch while being cozy, you can do club seating for a cool $2433.

You can get lower priced tickets on Craigslist and similar sites, but buyer beware - there is no guarantee that they're authentic.

If you can't make it out to the Boston area, you may get a chance to see the Chiefs play on their home turf one more time. If the Chiefs win Saturday and the Pittsburg Steelers win Sunday, then Kansas City would host the AFC Championship at Arrowhead.

Tickets to that game start at about $350 and go on up to nearly $1,000. Prices will sharply increase, however, if the Chiefs beat Pittsburg.
