Cowboys and 49ers Are Most Expensive Home Games on 2014 New York Giants Schedule

Apr 25 2014, 5:32pm CDT | by

The New York Giants started last season a disappointing 0-6, before turning things around with a 7-3 finish. Still, the 7-9 record was the worst the Giants have posted since Tom Coughlin’s first season as head coach back in 2004. The Giants responded by completely revamping their lineup, signing 15 new players, and bringing in a new offensive coordinator. The fan base doesn’t seem too pessimistic about the team’s chances and with the release of the NFL schedule Giants tickets have hit the secondary market averaging $371.39, which is 19% higher than the league average. The Giants trail just the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots for the highest home average price in the league.

Below is the average secondary market price for all games on the Giants home schedule:

Week 2 vs Arizona Cardinals | Avg. Price: $278.42 | Get-in Price: $102/>
/>

The Giants first home game is against a familiar foe. The former NFC East member, the Arizona Cardinals, is coming off a 10-win season that saw them just miss the playoffs. Despite it being the home opener, tickets are the cheapest of the season. With an average of $278.42, tickets are 25% below the season average. It’s the only game with an average below $300, and one of only three games below the season average.

Week 3 vs Houston Texans | Avg. Price: $349.63 | Get-in Price: $95/>
/>

While the Houston Texans have won two playoff games in the last three years, last season was a disaster. The team finished 2-14, and even though they have the top-pick, Giants fans don’t seem too excited about the game. The get-in price is the cheapest of the season at $95, and the average price is 6% below the season average at $349.63.

Week 5 vs Atlanta Falcons | Avg. Price: $358.41 | Get-in Price: $108/>
/>

The last two games between the Giants and Atlanta Falcons were lopsided affairs, with the home team winning each. The Giants will hope that trend continues for this game. While it’s early in the season, both teams are coming off bad seasons and are in need of early success. This game is the last game that tickets are below the season average. Tickets are 3% below the average with a $358.41 price, and a get-in price of $108.

Week 9 vs Indianapolis Colts | Avg. Price: $384.53 | Get-in Price: $98

This game against the Indianapolis Colts will be the Giants first home game in three weeks, and their only Monday Night Football game of the season. It’ll be Giants fans first look at former top-pick Andrew Luck, and running back Ahmad Bradshaw’s first game back at MetLife Stadium. The get-in price is the second lowest at $98 and the average price is 4% higher than the season average at $384.53

Week 11 vs San Francisco 49ers | Avg. Price: $420.83 | Get-in Price: $152/>
/>

This game marks a string of three straight with an average price over $400. Tickets are 13% higher than the season average at $420.83, and have the highest get-in price of the season at $152. It’ll be the first time the Giants have played the San Francisco 49ers at home since 2008. The Giants won the last two meetings with the 49ers, including an overtime victory in San Francisco in the NFC Championship game during their Super Bowl run in 2012.

Week 12 vs Dallas Cowboys | Avg. Price: $ 422.55 | Get-in Price: $147

The Giants finish their home slate with three straight divisional opponents, starting with a Sunday Night Football game against the Dallas Cowboys. It appears NBC picked a good game, as it’s the highest average ticket price on the New York Giants schedule. Tickets are 14% higher than the season average, and the get-in price is $147. The Cowboys swept the Giants last season for the first time since 2007. The Giants were 8-3 against them in their previous 11 meetings.

Week 15 vs Washington Redskins | Avg. Price: $414.62 | Get-in Price: $121

While the get-in price drops down to $121 for this game, the average price is still over $400. Giants tickets are 12% above the season average at an average price of $414.62. The Giants swept the season series last year, but the Redskins were one of the most disappointing teams in the league. Robert Griffin III was not the same quarterback returning from an ACL tear, and the defense fell apart. Things aren’t expected to be as bad this season.

Week 17 vs Philadelphia Eagles | Avg. Price: $376.81 | Get-in Price: $135

The average for this game is down to $376.81, just 1% about the season average, but the get-in price is $135. The game will be the final of the season, which is a change from last year when the Giants finished the season series with the Eagles by Week 8. That turned out to be lucky for the Giants. The Eagles were 3-5 after that Week 8 game, but finished the season 7-1.
