Eagles & Steelers Clash in Most Expensive Week 3 Game
September 20, 2016
Week 3 of the 2016 NFL season is officially here, and several major showdowns loom over the next six days. None will be greater (or more expensive) than an intrastate battle between the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers. The two undefeated teams will square off at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday in the top-priced game this week.
The Packers, Giants, Cowboys and Patriots also play in top-priced games at home. Check out the complete list of this week's most expensive games below:
9/25/16 Pittsburgh Steelers @ Philadelphia Eagles | Average Price: $405.66 | Get-in Price: $254
Expect to pay up if headed out to the Linc this Sunday. Eagles tickets against the Steelers are currently averaging $406 on the secondary market, easily making it the most expensive Week 3 game. If looking just to get past the gates the cheapest available tickets are now listed from $254 each. The Eagles took care of the Bears during Monday Night Football to claim their second win of the season. The Steelers return to the road after defeating the Bengals, 24-16, at Heinz Field on Sunday.
9/25/16 San Francisco 49ers @ Seattle Seahawks | Average Price: $375.99 | Get-in Price: $154
Neither the Seahawks nor the Rams could find the end zone on Sunday, relying on their kickers to do the scoring in the 9-3 Rams win. The Seahawks will hope for a reversal of fortune this weekend as they return to CenturyLink Field to host the 49ers. The game serves as the second highest-priced matchup of the week, with Seahawks tickets at CenturyLink Field averaging $376 and the get-in price listed from $154.
9/25/16 Detroit Lions @ Green Bay Packers | Average Price: $341.25 | Get-in Price: $158
Lambeau Field will be the site of the second most expensive game this week. With the Packers looking to bounce back from a loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2, their return home to play the 1-1 Lions is generating big price points on the secondary market. Packers tickets at Lambeau Field against the Lions average $341 and the get-in price is listed from $190.
9/25/16 Washington Redskins @ New York Giants | Average Price: $321.84 | Get-in Price: $145
An NFC East meeting between the Giants and Redskins will take place at MetLife Stadium on Sunday. The 2-0 Giants look to further separate themselves from the struggling Redskins, who dropped their first two games to the Steelers and Cowboys. Giants vs. Redskins tickets on the resale market currently average $322 and the cheapest tickets are listed from $145. Interestingly enough, it will be the third cheapest game remaining at MetLife Stadium this season behind games against the Lions on December 18th ($258 avg.) and Bengals on November 14th ($244 avg.).
9/25/16 Chicago Bears @ Dallas Cowboys | Average Price: $268.93 | Get-in Price: $103
The Cowboys were victors over the Redskins on Sunday, holding on to a 27-23 lead to cement their first win of the season. They'll return home this Sunday to host the Bears, where Cowboys tickets at AT&T Stadium currently average $269 on the secondary market. The cheapest tickets start from $103 each on TicketIQ. The Bears head to Arlington on the heels of a 29-14 defeat against the Eagles and are still in search of their first win of the season.
