CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A very limited amount of tickets arrived at Paul Brown Stadium on Wednesday for Saturday's playoff game against the Houston Texans. They were available to players first, followed by season ticket holders.

The Bengals ticket office says that less than 100 tickets were available. The tickets arrived at 9 a.m. and became available at noon.  Bengals fan Christopher Day, of Amelia, waited all night in freezing temperatures to nab some tickets, and succeeded, getting four.

Shortly after, the Bengals sold out.  As of Wednesday evening, though, we're told they have a few more on their hands, and those will go on sale to the public Thursday morning at 9 a.m., until they sell out or the ticket office closes at 2 p.m. The price is $60.

Jeff Berding with the Bengals says fans can also use the NFL Ticket Exchange online, although prices will be much higher. Buyers will have to go to the Texans page, where they can find Houston season ticket holders offering their tickets for sale. 

Travel packages are also available for this weekend's wild card game. On the lower end you can spend $649 if you have a group of four people. If you are going by yourself it will cost you around $769. The package includes one night hotel accommodations at the Crowne Plaza Houston, which is across the street from Reliant Stadium, one upper level end zone game ticket, a ticket holder and lanyard, plus on call assistance. All taxes are included.  

Phone lines at 333-SEAT downtown were ringing non-stop Wednesday.  Prices there start at $135, although tickets at that price were going quickly. 

"Fans are pumped about it. I think fans really think they can win in Houston on Saturday and end the drought," said Marketing Director Travis Jackson. "Most of our calls are, people want to get in the lower level, by the Bengals tunnel or on the Bengals side, I mean its amazing how fans really want to support this team."

The Bengals play the Texans at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
