The Dallas Cowboys have been wading in the murky waters of mediocrity the past three seasons, as Jason Garrett’s crew hasn’t finished better than 8-8 and has missed the playoffs each year.
Still, optimism reigns supreme in Dallas. Their defense could be one of the worst ever without Sean Lee in the middle, but the high hopes start and end with a stud offense led by Tony Romo.
As bad as it may look, it’s always difficult to count Dallas out. That’s precisely why Cowboys tickets remain in high demand. Let’s take a look at the Cowboys’ ticket value to start the year, as well as some additional information on NFL suites with data provided by SuiteHop.
Week 1 (Sep. 7th) VS. San Francisco 49ers | Average Price: $404.79 | Get-in: $149
The Cowboys’ bid to be something more than average starts at home in week one, as they go up against the John Harbaugh-led 49ers. Dallas might be getting a slight break here, as the Niners won’t be at full strength with at least two key starters missing on defense. This is a high octane home opener that should at the very worst be used as a measuring stick going forward. And at an average price of $404.79, it is the most expensive game on the Cowboys schedule. According to SuiteHop’s Dallas Cowboys suites data, barstool seats are available for $950, one of the many potential bargains you can find at AT&T Stadium.
Week 2 (Sep. 14th) @ Tennessee Titans | Average Price: $292.27 | Get-in: $93
Fans don’t have to pay quite so much to see their Cowboys in week two, as Tony Romo and co. head to Tennessee to take on the Titans. Jake Locker will have a tasty matchup on his hands, but he’s a quarterback Dallas could still shut down if they keep it together. Tennessee is a team somewhat in transition, so Dallas should be the favorites here.
Week 3 (Sep. 21st) @ St. Louis Rams | Average Price: $173.40 | Get-in: $45
Cowboys tickets drop quite a bit when they head to St. Louis, where the Rams will continue to try to deal with life without Sam Bradford (knee). Zac Stacy will look to carve up the Cowboys’ suspect run defense, while Tony Romo will need to evade the Rams’ elite pass rush. It’s oddly a fairly even matchup on paper, while it’s only tougher with it being on the road. Still, it’s a game Dallas should win and it comes at nice value.
Week 4 (Sep. 28th) VS. New Orleans Saints | Average Price: $288.76 | Get-in: $95
The ‘Boys’ last game of September is another epic clash, as they welcome the Saints to their stadium. Drew Brees and Tony Romo have been known for some solid duels, and Romo will certainly need to bring an A+ effort to keep his team in this one. This is a crazy value when you compare it to the Niners game, and it’s just the second home game of the year.
Dallas will definitely have their hands full in the first four weeks, but if they can get out of the first month of the year with a 2-2 mark, they’ll have a shot at building momentum toward a winning season.
