The Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos will renew their storied rivalry on Monday Night Football this week and the excitement around the AFC West over the first big rivalry clash in the division shows as the ticket is the hottest one in the NFL for Week 3.
Vivid Seats report on ticket prices for Week 3 has the Raiders-Broncos match up as the most expensive of the week, with a median ticket price of $285.
Andy Reid’s return to Philadelphia on Thursday Night Football was tied for the 6th-most expensive matchup of the week, with a median ticket price of $150. This price ties with the Bears-Steelers SNF game.
Fans who will catch the biggest break are Vikings fans, who can catch Adrian Peterson for the low average price of $58 dollars when Minnesota takes on the hapless Cleveland Browns this Sunday. That price is a full $15 cheaper than the second cheapest ticket this weekend between the Titans and the Chargers.
The Ravens-Texans game finished in second with a median price of $234, the Patriots-Bucs game in New England was third with a ticket average cost slightly above two hundred dollars.
You can find some value if heading to Monday Night Football in Denver, the minimum price for a single ticket was $100. Still pricey, but the price you pay to attend Monday Night Football. Especially if it is between the Broncos and the Raiders.
