Patriots,Vikings Most Expensive, Atlanta Falcons Least Expensive on Packers Schedule

Apr 25 2014, 5:32pm CDT | by

After making the playoffs while spending half the season with a trio of Scott Tolzien, Seneca Wallace and Matt Flynn at quarterback, the Green Bay Packers will be excited to have Aaron Rodgers back for a full season. Playing home games at one of the most historic stadiums in the country, Lambeau Field, Green Bay Packers tickets for home games are consistently some of the highest demanded in the league. Green Bay will have play the first game on the 2014 NFL schedule, but that will come on the road in Seattle. The Packers currently have an average price of $284.98 for the eight home games on their schedule. Green Bay has the tenth most expensive average home price in the NFL, right behind the Denver Broncos.

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

Week 2 vs New York Jets | Avg. Price: $286.90 | Get-in Price: $155/>

WIll the opposing quarterback be Michael Vick or Geno Smith? The Jets finished 8-8 last season, but didn’t spend most of it playing like a .500 team. The Lambeau Field home opener is almost exactly the average season price for Green Bay’s home games.

Week 5 vs Minnesota Vikings | Avg. Price: $314.81 | Get-in Price: $178

Two seasons ago, the Minnesota Vikings beat the Packers in Week 17 to make the playoffs as a Wild Card, before losing to Green Bay in the Wild Card Round. Last season the Vikings took a step back, but they still enter 2014 as the most expensive game on the Packers schedule at home. The Vikings are responsible for last season’s tie, which essentially gave Green Bay a half game lead on Chicago to win the division. This will be a Thursday Night game, coming a week after playing the Bears in Chicago.

Week 7 vs Carolina Panthers | Avg. Price: $277.70 | Get-in Price: $164

The Carolina Panthers became one of the top teams in the NFC last season, but this potential playoff preview is 2.55% below Green Bay’s season average. The Panthers won the NFC South last season with one of the most dominant defenses in the league, which should be a fun match-up against Rodgers and the rest of the Packers offense.

Week 10 vs Chicago Bears | Avg. Price: $310.91 | Get-in Price: $190

One of the best rivalries in football will take a prime time spotlight for a Sunday Night Football game. Last season, the prime time game between these two teams was in Week 17 with the NFC North on the line. With a bye during the previous week, Green Bay should be well rested for second game of the season between these two rivals. Surprisingly this isn’t the most expensive home game for Green Bay, but it is still 9.1% above the home average.

Week 11 vs Philadelphia Eagles | Avg. Price: $307.52 | Get-in Price: $155

Another potential playoff preview brings an above average price in Lambeau. The Philadelphia Eagles and Packers met at Lincoln Financial Field during the regular season last year. Philadelphia won behind 155 rushing yards from LeSean McCoy, 102 receiving yards from Riley Cooper and three passing touchdowns from Nick Foles.

Week 13 vs New England Patriots | Avg. Price: $311.86 | Get-in Price: $191

New England’s visit to Lambeau won’t be the most expensive by average price, but it will have the highest get-in price of the season. It is the second most expensive game by average price, 9.43% above Green Bay’s home average.

Week 14 vs Atlanta Falcons | Avg. Price: $211.03 | Get-in Price: $120

The Packers will play only one Monday Night game and it will come Week 14 against Atlanta. The prices, however, don’t hint towards a prime time matchup. This is the least expensive game on the Packers schedule, 25.95% below average. The low price is driven by Atlanta’s poor performance in 2013, finishing 4-12, but with a healthier roster the Falcons are expected to be closer to the 2012 version than last season by this part of the season.

Week 17 vs Detroit Lions | Avg. Price: $243.51 | Get-in Price: $143/>

With Aaron Rodgers as the quarterback, the Packers defeated the Lions 22-9 in Green Bay Week 5. Without Rodgers as the quarterback, the Packers lost 40-10 to the Lions in Detroit on Thanksgiving Week 13. The regular season finale is surprisingly 14.55% below the home average, though that should change depending on the standings of each team heading into the final game of the season.
