Titans Vs. Steelers Tickets More Expensive Than Any Other Game AT LP Field

By David Jacobs | November 8th, 2014

The Tennessee Titans are 2-6 coming off the bye having lost two consecutive games to the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans. The schedule does not get much easier coming up with difficult games against AFC North opponents Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

Below is a breakdown of each matchup, as well as ticket data from each game, courtesy of Coast to Coast Tickets:

Week 10 @ Baltimore Ravens | Average Ticket Price = $182 | Get-in Ticket Price = $60

The Titans will visit Baltimore off the bye and will have a very difficult time getting to their third win. The Ravens will absolutely need this win if they want to get any separation in the AFC North, so Tennessee should expect to find a talented Baltimore team have crisp, sound execution. Rookie Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger will need to avoid mistakes, otherwise they will be handing Baltimore a win.

Titans vs. Ravens tickets are more expensive than any game at LP Field this season, currently holding an average price of $182 and a get-in of $60.

Week 11 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers | Average Ticket Price = $178 | Get-in Ticket Price = $51

Packers Tickets For Next Two Games The Most Expensive All Season

By David Jacobs | November 7th, 2014

Green Bay sits at 5-3 at the bye and has a great opportunity to put some additional dent into the records of a few playoff contenders. Next up is rival Chicago, a team spiraling out of contention with recent losses to Miami and New England. A third loss in a row and Green Bay would be giving the Bears an early exit from divisional title contention.

Packers 2

Following Chicago, the Philadelphia Eagles will visit Lambeau Field. Philly is situated right in the thick of the playoff hunt and this game could have major playoff implications later in the season.

Let’s take a look at each game, as well as view data on Green Bay Packers tickets from Coast to Coast Tickets.

Week 10 vs. Chicago Bears | Average Ticket Price = $314 | Get-in Ticket Price = $150

There would be nothing sweeter than another victory over Chicago. It would put the Pack at 6-3 and the Bears a full three games behind at 3-6 with Green Bay holding the all-important tiebreaker. Chicago would need a miracle to make up four games over the final seven of the season so Green Bay would essentially have eliminated the Bears from any reasonable chance at a division title.

Lions vs. Dolphins Tickets Second Most Expensive Matchup On Lions Schedule

By David Jacobs | November 7th, 2014

The Detroit Lions can comfortably sit through their bye week knowing they will begin Week 10 as the NFC North leaders.  That’s really all the comfort they will have, however, as their next two opponents will not be easy. Below is a breakdown of their upcoming home game against the Miami Dolphins, as well as their road matchup versus the Arizona Cardinals.  All Detroit Lions tickets data is via Coast to Coast Tickets.

Week 10 vs. Miami Dolphins | Average Ticket Price = $189 | Get-in Ticket Price = $59

The Miami Dolphins visit in Week 10 for what should be an intense battle won in the trenches. Both teams certainly boast plenty of skill players, including former Dolphin Reggie Bush on the Detroit side, but ultimately the likes of Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake are going to swing this game. If the Lions can keep Matthew Stafford upright and put pressure on opposing quarterback Ryan Tannehill, expect another W for the Lions.

This is the second most expensive game on the Lions schedule, trailing only the Thanksgiving Day game against the Chicago Bears. That could change if Detroit’s winning ways continue so don’t expect much cheaper prices in November and December with a win in Week 10.

Broadway Holiday Season Time

By David Jacobs | November 5th, 2014

This week, there has been plenty of exciting news regarding live Broadway productions, that are bringing fresh new faces into their lineup for this season’s shows. This week, popular film actress officially began her run in the much talked about new Broadway show, Caberet. The show officially opened on April 24th of this year, and now film star Emma Stone will be taking the stage for the production. The show, which is currently slated to run through March of next year, is one of the most talked abotu new revivals of the year and now with Stone in the role of Sally Bowles, many are excited to see what the actress can bring to the live theater stage. Stone is replaxing actress Michelle Williams in the iconic role as the 1930s Berlin night clube singer. Stone begins her performances in the role this week at Broadway’s Studio 54. Emma Stone will be performing in the production until February 1st, 2015. The show also stars Alan Cumming, Danny Burstein and Linda Emond. Tickets are available now to see the Golden Glob-nominated actress in her first Broadway role.

Back-To-Back Divisional Opponents On Bears Schedule

By David Jacobs | November 5th, 2014

The Chicago Bears are coming off one of their worst losses in franchise history, a crushing 51-23 rout at the hands of the New England Patriots. Just a few minutes into the second half and they trailed 45-7. Quarterback Jay Cutler looked lost most of the game and the defense was essentially non-existent during the entire second quarter when they gave up 31 points.


It doesn’t get any easier coming off of their Week 9 bye as they will have to travel to Green Bay to face the rival Packers.  Below is a breakdown of the Packers game, as well as Bears tickets data for their next home game against the Minnesota Vikings, according to CoasttoCoastTickets.com:

Week 10 @ Green Bay Packers | Average Ticket Price = $314 | Get-in Ticket Price = $150

The Pack beat Chicago in Week 4 38-17. As it stands now, Green Bay has looked very beatable this season, just scraping by wins vs. the Jets and Dolphins which very easily could have put them with a losing record entering this game.  Nonetheless, they stand more than a game better than the Bears so Chicago won’t be able to even the score with a win. A loss would be devastating, however, and could ultimately end any realistic chances at the postseason.
