We'll this isn't something you see every day.

Kelly Stafford, the wife of quarterback Matthew Stafford, is asking fans of the Los Angeles Rams to not sell their tickets for Monday's NFL playoff game against the Arizona Cardinals, to Cardinals fans.

Seeing a lot of Cardinals fans at a road game in SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles would surely be a welcome site to Cardinals fans who have endured dealing with a lot of road fans at State Farm Stadium in Glendale through the years.

"My plea," Kelly Stafford wrote on Instagram Wednesday. "Please don't sell you (sic) tickets to Arizona fans."

NFL playoff odds:

Kelly Stafford discussed how disruptive opposing fans were at the Rams' regular-season ending loss to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 18, and how she doesn't want to see that replicated in the playoff game Monday night.

"I'm not going to lie, I've never seen so many of the opposing teams' fans at a game," she said on her podcast, "On the Morning After with Kelly Stafford". "And we came from Detroit and there were a lot of good traveling teams there, but that was wild.

"Matthew is on a silent count. When he hikes the ball, it's either a loud count where you can hear him, and that's what usually quarterbacks are on when they're at home. Matthew is on a silent count, Jimmy Garoppolo was not – who is the opposing quarterback. It was crazy.

"I mean, I've never seen anything like that and it made it very hard for us because I guess we weren't expecting to be on silent count."

Los Angeles traded for Matthew Stafford in an attempt to go all-in this season, putting a lot of pressure on the quarterback to produce against the Cardinals.

Earlier this week, TickPick reported that Cardinals vs. Rams tickets had the most affordable "get-in" price among this weekend's NFL games, at $84.

It reported that the average price for a ticket for the game was $195.
