WASHINGTON — The Redskins play the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon to close out their 2016 regular season.

The Week 17 tilt will help decide the NFC postseason structure — if the Redskins pull out the victory, their chances at making the playoffs are dramatically improved. A win and they’re almost in, a loss and the season is virtually over.

Not surprisingly, ticket prices for that game are quickly rising.

Early Wednesday morning, there was a single pair of standing room tickets available on Stubhub for $64 per ticket. The next cheapest tickets, which were for seats, were going for $70-85, and there were several sets available.

Just a few hours later, at 10 a.m., that same pair of $64 standing room tickets was available. However, the cheapest seats had all been snatched up, leaving the cheapest seats available at $95.

For comparison, there are $29 tickets available to the Wizards’ home game against the Indiana Pacers Wednesday night, $15 tickets to the Wizards’ next home game against the Brooklyn Nets and $7 tickets to the Wizards’ next home game after that against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Wizards have won eight of their past 12 games.

As for Ticketmaster, the cheapest tickets available around 10 a.m. were for about $100, and that’s for standing room tickets.

If your plans for New Years’ Day include watching the Redskins take on the Giants for a shot at the playoffs, and you want to do so in person, you better act quickly. The prices will likely continue to rise in the days before the game.

Thursday Update

Shortly before 1 p.m. on Thursday, the $64 standing room tickets were off the market on Stubhub. The cheapest tickets available were for standing room only at $93.

Vivid Seats has standing room tickets available for the Week 17 showdown as low as $86, while Ticketmaster has standing room tickets starting at $98.

    Racism question for the NFL….
    REDSKIN – [Red-skin] Noun, A disparaging and offensive contemptuous term used to
    refer to a North American Indian.
    N-WORD – [nig-er] Noun, A disparaging and offensive contemptuous term used to refer
    to a black person.
    How can one be offensive and not the other? Racism is something that apply to all
    people, not just black people. You cannot say the N-word on the radio, tv, or even
    in the newspapers or internet. Yet, the FCC allow the offensive word against Native
    Americans to be broadcast freely all over the media. Can you tell me why this is so,
    we as Americans, must fight against all forms of Racism in this country.
    It is time to Change The Name, stop supporting Racism.
