Prices for Bengals-Bills, the most expensive home game of 2022, skyrocketed
CINCINNATI (WXIX) – A single ticket to the much-anticipated Bengals-Bills matchup on Monday Night Football at Paycor Stadium is getting more expensive in the secondary market.
The Cincinnati Bengals (11-4) have won their last seven games, while the Bills (12-3) have won their last six.
The game has major playoff implications as the Bengals struggle to secure the number one seed in the AFC. To do this, they must defeat the Bills, who are in first place, and must hope that the runners-up Kansas City Chiefs (12-3) will lose one of their last two games against the Broncos and Raiders.
Getting the top seed would give the Bengals a goodbye in the first round, as well as home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

“This is a meeting between two of the top three teams in the AFC with playoff implications. This is a huge game. Demand is high,” said Sean O’Connor of Ticketjungle.com, a Cincinnati-based marketplace that claims to offer lower fees than national competitors.
