Denver Tickets on Secondary Market Rank Third Out Of Four Games For NFL Divisional Round
Earlier this week the Denver Broncos had the most expensive secondary market tickets for the NFL’s Divisional Round, but with the market fluctuating in the days leading up to the game, it now ranks third out of the four games being played. Before diving into the ticket information, the Broncos are the No. 1 seed in the AFC after a thrilling final two weeks that had the Broncos winning two games, the New England Patriots losing two games and Peyton Manning retaking the starting quarterback spot. Their opponent, the Pittsburgh Steelers, were involved in perhaps the most controversial game of the NFL’s opening playoff weekend. With multiple incidents involving coaches and players contacting each other, two late personal foul flags and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger leaving and reentering the game on the final drive of the game; it was the central focus of the Wild Card Round. With a hurt Roethlisberger, the status of star wide receiver Antonio Brown in question in addition to running back DeAngelo Williams, Denver’s defense should have a golden opportunity to take advantage of a hobbled Steelers team. On the secondary market, Broncos tickets rank third in the four games being played this weekend. According to TiqIQ.com, the average ticket price is $358.11 with a get-in price of $139, as the price has fallen for five consecutive days.
