Prices For Redskins vs Cowboys Tickets Plummeting On Secondary Market Before Kickoff
Brace yourself - things might get ugly in the nation’s capital tonight. The Washington Redskins will host the Dallas Cowboys in what would muddy the NFC East picture even further with a Redskins loss. The Cowboys have the chance to hand the Redskins their seventh loss of the season, which would solidify a three-team draw atop the division at 5-7. The key divisional matchup hasn’t dictated a strong ticket demand on the secondary market, either, as prices continue to drop in the hours leading up to the game’s 8:30 p.m. kickoff. According to TiqIQ, the average price for Redskins vs Cowboys tickets is currently $165.32. That marks a 24.5% drop from the game’s December 3rd average of $219.12. It owned a peak average of $323.11 on November 21, which makes the current average 48.8% cheaper. If looking just to get into tonight’s game, the cheapest available ticket is listed for $90.

A Monday Night Football win would add even more oddity to the Cowboys’ season. The team surged out of the gate, winning its first two games but losing quarterback Tony Romo to a broken collarbone against the Eagles on September 20. Seven consecutive losses would follow, but a weak NFC East has allowed the Cowboys to remain relevant in the standings in Week 13. Romo was officially ruled out for the season after aggravating his collarbone again against the Panthers late last month. They’ll rely on Matt Cassel under center down the stretch to keep their postseason hopes alive. The Redskins currently control the top spot in the NFC East at 5-6, making them the lone divisional leader in the NFL with a losing record. They’ve yet to face the Cowboys this season but could gain a full-game lead over the second-place Eagles and Giants, who both sit at 5-7 on the season. A win would give them their first back-to-back victories since Weeks 7 and 8 of the 2014 season. Washington’s X factor has been quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has led a monster home campaign over the Redskins last five games at FedExField. The 27-year-old has spearheaded a five-game win streak at home dating back to a September 20 game with the Rams. He has thrown for 1,436 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions over that time.
