It’s a big week in the NFL; seven of this week’s Top 10 events are made up of the League’s teams. However, the No. 1 spot is rocked by a group with two performances in Newark this week at the Prudential Center (and yes, the legendary band will be joined by Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen in their second show).
After a successful show at Barclay’s Center last weekend, the Rolling Stones move up into the top spot this week with performances Thursday and Saturday at the Prudential Center in Jersey. Average Rolling Stones tickets for their Saturday show are $1376 ($485 higher than Thursday’s show). Mick Jagger and company will be performing their classic hits in addition to material from their new album. Check out our blog for more on the Rolling Stones 50th Anniversary Shows.
Up two spots from last week, the New York Knicks bounce into the No. 2 spot this week with games at Madison Square Garden. Thursday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers, was the fourth highest priced game at the beginning of the season (then averaging $604). Now New York Knicks tickets for the game are averaging $611; the get-in price, $147. Following Thursday’s highly anticipated matchup, the Knicks will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers; tickets for Saturday’s Knicks vs. Cavaliers matchup averaging a much lower $289.
The first of seven NFL teams to make Razorgator’s Top 10 Events of the Week are the Chicago Bears who will play the Green Bay Packers at home Sunday. Although the Bears are 1-4 in their last 5; the team is just one game behind the Packers in the NFC North. Should the Packers win, they will clinch the divisional title. Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler says he expects to play this week against Green Bay. Tickets to the game start at $185.
Last week was not an easy one for the Dallas Cowboys. Playing without teammates Jerry Brown and Josh Brent, the team managed a win in a gutsy performance against the Bengals. This week, the Cowboys are thrown into another big test against the Pittsburgh Steelers; both the Cowboys and Steelers are still part of the Wild Card race. Tickets at Cowboys Stadium for Sunday’s matchup range between $250 (Loge Level) – $27,155 (Suite).
Magic Johnson tweeted that tonight’s Patriots, Texans Monday Night Football game might be the most exciting game played all season. Both teams have clinched playoff spots; both are 9-2 favorites to win the 2013 Super Bowl. Fast forward to Sunday, and the Patriots will be on the field again at Gillette Stadium for a matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. Both the Patriots and Niners are looking to secure the No. 2 seed in the AFC and NFC respectively. The cheapest ticket tonight, $104; the cheapest ticket Sunday, $137.
With the best record in the NFL, the Houston Texans land in the No. 6 spot this week with a home game against divisional rival, Indianapolis Colts. If the playoffs started today, both teams would be in; the Colts are in control of the AFC Wild Card race (and would like to keep it that way). Tickets going as low as $172, and as high as $946.
Another NFL team to have clinched a playoff spot already (and a Division win), are the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons face NFC East Division leader, the New York Giants Sunday at the Georgia Dome. Unlike the Falcons, the Giants are still looking to clinch a spot in the playoffs.
As expected the National Finals Rodeo made the Top 10 two weeks in a row. Tickets for the 10-day event that concludes Saturday are averaging between $130 (12-11-12) – $396 (12-15-12). For more on ticket prices and other top events in Vegas during NFR, check out our National Finals Rodeo preview.
Although the Philadelphia Eagles are out of playoff contention, their opponent this week – The Cincinnati Bengals – are very much alive for a Wild Card berth. This game lands the Eagles at No. 9. Get-in price for the game is only $17.
The last spot in this week’s Top 10, goes to the Oakland Raiders who take on the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday in front of a home crowd. A divisional matchup between two of the worst teams in the NFL; but a contest to remain out of the bottom spot. Tickets range between $14 – $287. You read that correctly; the highest ticket to the Raiders/Chiefs game is lower than the average ticket prices to the Bears, Cowboys, Patriots, and Texans home games this week.
