After breaking their losing streak last year, the Cleveland Browns are red hot with fans.

Single game tickets sold out in less than a day, leaving fans scouring secondary market sites. And they're willing to pay top dollar. As of Wednesday, the average ticket price was 141% higher than it was in 2018, according to TicketIQ.

That's almost three times the increase of any other team. New England Patriots fans are paying 48% more than a year ago and Kansas City Chiefs fans are paying an extra 45%.

Percentage increases don't always translate to the highest prices, though. Even with that massive spike, a Browns ticket will run you an average of $162, the 24th cheapest team in the NFL, says TicketIQ. A seat at a Patriots game averages $777. (Chicago is the second most expensive team at an average $510 secondary asking price.)

Fans in Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Miami and Washington D.C. are all able to get secondary market tickets cheaper than last year, however. The Falcons are down 13%. the Steelers are seeing a 16% discount, the Jaguars are down 17% and the Dolphins are off 19%. And Redskins tickets are 21% cheaper in the secondary market than they were a year ago.
