Top 5 NFL Games of the Week: Week 7
October 23, 2015
Week 7 of the NFL season kicked off on Thursday night with a Seattle Seahawks route over the San Francisco 49ers. It will continue early on Sunday morning when the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars square off at Wembley Stadium in London. However, the biggest games of the week will all take place later on Sunday, fueled by a few rivalries. Below are the five most expensive NFL games in Week 7 on the secondary market.
New York Jets at New England Patriots | Avg. Price: $599.37
Prices spiked early for this game when it was supposed to be Tom Brady’s first home game back from his suspension, but the demand never went down. Now the Jets head into Gillette Stadium with a 4-1 record and look like one of the better teams in the AFC, which has helped keep ticket prices high. While the Jets might not be at the level of the Patriots, this game could be the closest this rivalry has felt in years.
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants | Avg. Price: $424.38
It’s only Week 7, but this rivalry game will be played for the second time of the season already. The New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys opened up the season on Sunday Night Football, which was capped by a late Cowboys touchdown drive to win the game. Dallas will now head into MetLife Stadium without Tony Romo and likely without Dez Bryant. Still, Giants tickets remain among the most expensive on the secondary market with an average price of $424.38.
Philadelphia Eagles at Carolina Panthers | Avg. Price: $269.83
The Carolina Panthers continue to be this season’s most surprising success. Carolina made the playoffs last season, but with a record of just 7-8-1 in a bad division. The Panthers remain unbeaten this season after a come from behind win against the Seahawks in Seattle in Week 6. They’ll now host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night after the Eagles easily handled the Giants on Monday Night Football last week.
Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers | Avg. Price: $212.22
The Raiders and Chargers have a longstanding rivalry in the AFC West, and this could be their last game played in San Diego. In fact, these two teams could even be sharing a stadium in Los Angeles as early as next season. Both offenses have been better than expected this season, and while neither one are likely to catch the Broncos, Sunday afternoon could see a competitive game at Qualcomm.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs | Avg. Price: $155.21
Snake bitten by injuries, the Chiefs have turned into one of the least efficient teams in the league. Without star running back Jamaal Charles, there’s been little hope of offensive productivity. Meanwhile the Steelers lost quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, yet still have a record of 4-2, including a win over the Arizona Cardinals with Landry Jones at quarterback. Many Steelers fans could be flocking to Arrowhead, helping to drive up ticket prices in Kansas City.
