Giants & Jets Meet in Most Expensive Week 13 Game on Secondary Market
Week 13 has already been highlighted by Aaron Rodgers’ 61-yard game-winning throw against the Lions Thursday night, but several key games will be played around the league this weekend. Among the biggest is a showdown in the Meadowlands between the New York Giants and Jets Sunday afternoon. Both are vying for a Wild Card berth in their respective conferences and the battle will be the most expensive game on the secondary market this week. MetLife Stadium will play host to the 13th regular season meeting between the Giants and Jets. The average secondary market price for Giants vs Jets tickets is currently $430.70, which is actually down 18% from its peak average of $524.32 on November 28. The cheapest ticket is now listed for $213. The Giants lead the series 8-4 all-time. If traveling to the game from out of town, Hipmunk.com offers all your flight and hotel needs in one place. Flights can be made from anywhere in the country while New York City hotels on Hipmunk start from just $80 per night this weekend. After having their undefeated streak snapped by the Broncos last week, the Patriots travel home to take on the slumping Eagles in the week’s second most expensive game. Patriots vs Eagles tickets own a secondary market average of $315.22, a sharp 44.3% decline from its $566.28 average on November 28 – one day prior to their loss to the Broncos. The get-in price starts at $165. The Eagles have appeared to throw in the towel on Chip Kelly and his fast-paced work ethic, dropping their last three games and being outscored 110-50 in those games. They’ll likely be steamrolled by the Patriots at their current pace, even with the number of injuries piling up in New England’s camp. The Bears have played considerably well over the last four weeks, posting big wins over the Rams and Packers to keep their playoff hopes alive. At 5-6 they’ll take on the reeling 3-8 49ers Sunday, where Bears vs 49ers tickets average $242.40 and the get-in price is $76. Chicago owns the 10th seed in the NFC playoff picture but could make a push towards the front of the Wild Card pack with a win at home against a struggling San Francisco team this weekend. Sunday’s game will be the most expensive game remaining at Soldier Field during the regular season, with next week’s battle with the Redskins averaging $205.72 and a January 3 game with the Lions owning an average price of $229.16 on the resale market. Rounding off this week’s top-priced games is a matchup between the Redskins and Cowboys in the nation’s capital. The 5-6 Redskins can fortify their positioning with a win over the Tony Romo-less Cowboys, whose offensive output will be in question without their star quarterback under center. Redskins vs Cowboys tickets now average $214, down 23.3% from the November 28 average of $278.94. The Redskins enter their game with the Cowboys owners of the fourth seed in the NFC playoff picture. They’ll hope to keep their playoff hopes alive with a win over the struggling Cowboys, who are considered the worst team in the NFC at 3-8 and own the 16th seed in the conference ahead of Sunday’s game.
