Top 5 NFL Tickets Of The Week (10/6)
October 6, 2014
Week 6 of the NFL season will begin this Thursday with a game between the Colts and Texans, though each top-priced game on the secondary market will be played on Sunday. Owning the most expensive home average in the league this season are the Seahawks, who will host the most expensive game of the week against the Cowboys. Three of the five most expensive games on the secondary market this week will be divisional games. This comes a week after there was only two divisional games in total on the schedule. Below are the five most expensive Week 6 games on the secondary market, according to TicketIQ.
Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks | Avg. Price: $424.51 | Get-in: $161
The Seahawks will play the Redskins as part of Monday Night Football to conclude Week 5 following a bye last week, but their home game against the Cowboys on Sunday will own the most expensive secondary average in the league this week. The average price for Seahawks vs Cowboys tickets is currently $424.51 on the secondary market, which will be the second highest on the remaining Seahawks schedule, trailing just a game with the 49ers in December ($518.76/avg.). The get-in price for this Sunday’s game featuring Russell Wilson and Tony Romo starts at $161. The Seahawks welcome a revved-up Cowboys team, that has won its last four games.
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles | Avg. Price: $294.32 | Get-in: $143
The Giants have come alive after a lackadaisical start to their season and head to Philadelphia this Sunday to play the 4-1 Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The average secondary price for Eagles vs New York Giants tickets is $294.32, which will be the most expensive Philadelphia Eagles tickets remaining at home. Get-in price starts at $143 as the team takes on an NFC East divisional opponent. The Giants have won their last three games, taking wins from the Texans, Redskins and Falcons over the last several weeks. The Eagles host their second consecutive home game after a shaky finish against the Rams last Sunday, nearly blowing a 20-point lead in the fourth quarter to the underperforming Rams.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns | Avg. Price: $258.48 | Get-in: $109
The Browns led an inspiring comeback against the Titans over the weekend and pulled away in the fourth quarter after putting up 16 unanswered points on the road. The team heads home to play the Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend and will see the third highest-priced ticket average of the week. The average price for Browns tickets against the Steelers on Sunday is currently $258.48 on the secondary market. Sunday’s game will easily be the priciest home game remaining on the Browns schedule this season. The Steelers have followed a win-loss trend all season long and head to Cleveland after beating the Jaguars on the road. The Browns have played in similar fashion to the Steelers, trading wins and losses through the season’s first five weeks for a 2-2 record heading into Sunday.
Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons | Avg. Price: $252.63 | Get-in: $83
The Falcons played fairly well against the Giants over the weekend but could not overcome a strong offensive output by Eli Manning and his crew of receivers. The team heads home to host the Chicago Bears this weekend and the game will see an average secondary price of $252.63 for Falcons tickets. The get-in price will be the cheapest among all top-priced games and at $83. The Bears head to the Georgia Dome after falling to the Panthers in Charlotte over the weekend and sit at just 2-3 in the NFC North. The Falcons share a similar record to the Bears, though they sit in second place in a depleted NFC South that has seen the Saints play poorly and the first-place Panthers struggle considerably at times.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills | Avg. Price: $229.80 | Get-in: $87
Following big Week 5 wins by both teams, the Patriots and the Buffalo Bills head to Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo in a pivotal AFC East matchup on Sunday. The average price for Bills vs Patriots tickets is $229.80 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $87. The Patriots head to upstate New York after a huge win against the then-unbeaten Bengals and the Bills sneaked out a win against the Lions at Ford Field over the weekend. Both teams sit at 3-2 and share first-place honors in the AFC East and the conclusion of Sunday’s game will cement a sole spot atop the division.
