In Wake of Deflategate, Prices for Colts vs Patriots Tickets this Sunday Remain low on Secondary Market

The New England Patriots have scorched the earth during the 2015 NFL season, wasting all who have opposed the reigning Super Bowl champions. The team will now head to Indianapolis to face the Colts this Sunday - their first matchup since the Deflategate scandal in the AFC Championship Game last season. There is no doubt that the Indianapolis faithful will be well equipped with boos for the Patriots, who routed the Colts, 45-7, in the Conference Championship Game last season. However, for the Patriots fan willing to make the travel, ticket prices on the secondary market are considerably cheaper than any home game in Foxborough this season. According to TiqIQ, the average price for Colts vs Patriots tickets this weekend is $199.73, which marks a 24.4% jump over the Colts’ season average of $160.54 on the resale market. The cheapest available ticket for Sunday’s game is currently $84. It is the second most expensive home game remaining on the Colts’ schedule this season, trumped only by a Week 9 matchup with the Denver Broncos at an average price of $290.22 and $109 get-in price. It appears that Deflategate hasn’t lifted ticket prices to greater heights in Indianapolis, however. Prior to the AFC Championship Game back in January, the Patriots and Colts last met in Indianapolis in November and garnered a similar ticket demand to this Sunday’s showdown.  That game had a $200.67 average – less than a dollar more than Sunday - and the get-in price was $91. Of course, Sunday’s ticket prices pale in comparison to the Patriots’ remaining six games at Gillette. The least expensive game comes in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills for Monday Night Football, when tickets own a secondary market average of $328.58 and the get-in price is $160. Two games currently exceed the $700 average –  Week 9 against the Washington Redskins ($700.21) and Week 7 versus the New York Jets ($742.03). Fans hoping to make the commute from New England to Indianapolis can find the best deals on flights and hotels at Hipmunk.com. The cheapest round trip flight to Indianapolis on Hipmunk from Logan International Airport in Boston is $495.70 while four-star hotels in Indianapolis on Hipmunk start as low as $223 per night. It will be an important game for the Colts, who are looking to prove their dominance in the AFC South after a slow start to the season. The team has won its last three games after consecutive losses to the Bills and Jets during Week 1 and 2. The Patriots have gone a flawless 4-0 over the first five weeks of play and have pinned at least 30 points on each of their opponents over their last three games.
