Even In 2016, Old School Cowboys-49ers Rivalry Commanding Highest Ticket Prices For Week 4
It’s been a crazy first three weeks thus far into the 2016 NFL season, and things could be even spicier with what’s on tap for Week 4. Injuries are starting to pile up, especially at the running back position, so we’re entering a critical juncture in the first half of the campaign that can dictate how particular teams will fare from here on out. Let’s take a look at the top games from the Week 4 slate in terms of get-in ticket price, using information provided by TicketIQ.
10/2 Dallas at San Francisco | Levi’s Stadium | Get-In Ticket Price: $241
The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers have played 34 times, including seven times in the postseason. Dallas holds a slight 17-16-1 advantage over the Niners and will look to add their 18th win this Sunday. These two teams haven’t played since 2014 in Dallas when San Francisco won, 28-17, but there’s a lot of history here stemming from the franchises’ golden days when both organizations were at the top of the sport. Thus, it’s no surprise to see that Dallas vs San Francisco tickets start at $241. Luckily, fans traveling to this game can at least save some money on their parking at Levi’s Stadium by going to ParkWhiz.com, which features numerous cheap parking options all around the venue.
10/2 Buffalo at New England | Gillette Stadium | Get-In Ticket Price: $185
Another week, another New England victory. Bill Belichick and Co. had only three days to get third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett ready for his Week 3 matchup against Houston -- and they flourished. Brissett led a conservative attack that led to a 27-0 victory over the Texans, though he may not be healthy enough to suit up for what would be his second career start. On the flip side, Buffalo has been a mess this season, but rallied to knock off a tough Arizona club in Week 3. Given the nature of this rivalry, ticket prices are expected to remain high. In fact, they lowest get-in price is currently a whopping $185. ParkWhiz.com fortunately also has cheap parking deals for Gillette Stadium parking for fans seeking to save extra money.
10/2 Detroit at Chicago | Soldier Field | Get-In Ticket Price: $122
An NFC North divisional battle will commence at Soldier Field when Detroit comes to town. This will be the Lions’ second straight road game against a divisional foe, while the Bears return home after suffering their latest loss, this one on Sunday Night Football against the Cowboys. Detroit has won six straight games against Chicago, and will certainly be looking to take this one to even their record back up.. On TicketIQ, Detroit vs. Chicago tickets start at $122.
10/2 Oakland at Baltimore | M&T Bank Stadium | Get-In Ticket Price: $119
The Oakland Raiders play their second straight road game with a 1:00 p.m. EST start when they travel to M&T Bank Stadium to play the Baltimore Ravens. The 3-0 Ravens have started off very well, a great contrast to a season ago when they got out to a dreadful start and were virtually eliminated from playoff contention only several weeks into the season. The Raiders, meanwhile, are looking to live up to the lofty expectations set before them entering the new season, and a win here would further cement them as a playoff contender, as they could move to 3-1.
10/3 New York Giants at Minnesota | U.S. Bank Stadium | Get-In Ticket Price: $115This week’s Monday Night Football features another primetime matchup at the new U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota. This is a potential NFC playoff matchup, too, so it could be a relative bargain with the get-in price being a shade over $100. Last season, the Vikings embarrassed the Giants,, 49-17, so expect New York to play with a lot of fire in this encounter, especially after their heartbreaking defeat last week at the hands of the nemesis Redskins. Giants vs. Vikings tickets start at $115 on TicketIQ.
