The Redskins have announced the game is sold out, so if you're planning on seeing the game in person, you have to get creative and expect to sit -- or stand -- way up in the nosebleed area.

You're probably going to have to get your tickets on the secondary market. Primesport.com, the Seahawks' travel partner, is advertising package deals at $870 for one person, $715 per person for two, $665 per person for three and $640 per person for four. It includes an upper-level ticket for each person, a Sunday night stay at a hotel, a tailgate gift card for food and drinks before and during the game and a Seahawks souvenir.

Killerseats.com has standing room only tickets above the end zone for $129. Some ads posted on EBay are offering lower-level seats for about the same price. Experts say make sure to get your tickets in hand before you travel because of so many scams out there, and remember that if the deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Then there's the cost of airfare. A check on Kayak.com Wednesday morning found some flights are as cheap as $450 before taxes.

If you want to roll the dice and win a free trip to the game, the Washington State Lottery is holding a drawing Wednesday night at Westfield Southcenter Mall.
