October 20, 2014
The Denver Broncos will host the top-priced game on the secondary market for the second consecutive week when they welcome the Chargers to Sports Authority Field on Thursday. Following the Broncos in price are the Patriots, who are set to host the Bears at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. In the middle of the price pack this week is a game between the Packers and Saints in New Orleans while the Colts and Steelers battle in Pittsburgh as the fourth most expensive game. Rounding off this week’s list are the Seahawks and Panthers, who will meet in Charlotte on Sunday.
A pivotal AFC West battle will take place in Denver this Thursday when the Chargers and Broncos square off in this week’s most expensive game. The average price for Broncos vs Chargers tickets is $387.83 on the secondary market and a get-in price of $145. The Broncos remain at home for the second straight week after cruising to an easy victory over the 49ers last week. They sit atop the division at 5-1 while the Chargers trail closely behind with a 5-2 record heading into Week 8.
The Patriots will have plenty of rest before hosting the Bears at home this weekend. The team barely escaped last Thursday’s game against the Jets at Gillette Stadium but head into Week 8 with plans to disassemble the struggling Bears even further. The average secondary price for Patriots tickets against the Bears is $359.38 with a get-in price of $165. The Bears are just 3-4 after a promising two consecutive-win stint against the 49ers and Jets earlier this season. The Patriots own first-place honors in the AFC East with a 5-2 record.
Following a late-game loss to the Lions last Sunday in Detroit, the Saints head home to host the Packers this week. The average price for Saints vs Packers tickets is $297.54 on the secondary market. The get-in price for the game is currently $103. The Saints sit at just 2-4 in a weak NFC South, where the Panthers lead the division with a .500 record at 3-3-1. The Packers handed the Panthers their third loss of the season last weekend at home but will travel to the Superdome to take on the Saints this Sunday. They are tied with the Lions atop the NFC North with a 5-2 record.
The Steelers will host the Texans as part of Monday Night Football in Week 7 and also own the fourth most expensive ticket average on the secondary market for their Week 8 home game against the Colts this Sunday. The average secondary price for Steelers tickets against the Colts is $235.03 with a get-in price of $33. The Steelers are just 3-3 and will play a pivotal game with the Texans Monday, who also sit at .500. The Steelers will hope that two consecutive home games will right the ship in the AFC North, where they trail the Bengals and first-place Ravens.
Rounding off this week’s list is a game between the Seahawks and Panthers on Sunday. The average price for Panthers vs Seahawks tickets in Charlotte this Sunday is $222.70 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $78. Both teams took losses in Week 7, when the Panthers fell to the Packers and the Seahawks succumbed to the Rams. Both will look to bounce back on Sunday, though the Panthers still sit in first place in the depleted NFC South.
