The Cowboys weren’t the only losers in Texas last weekend.

According to ESPN, Super Bowl ticket sellers also took a hit Sunday when Green Bay beat Dallas on a last-second field goal.

Before Sunday’s playoff game, the cheapest ticket to Super Bowl LI on StubHub was $4,195. Shortly after the Cowboys were defeated 34-31 on a field goal as time ran out, the get-in price was down 20 percent to $3,349. Tickets in the lower end zone dropped 18 percent to $4,307.

The cheapest tickets on Stubhub on Tuesday morning were available in the upper end zone for $3,330.

The Cowboys aren’t just a big national draw — they also would have been playing a near home game as the site of this year’s big game is NRG Stadium in Houston.
