Patriots Tickets Preview For September

By David Jacobs | September 4th, 2014

Despite the fact that the Patriots lost several significant performers to injury last year on both sides of the ball, they still managed to rack up a 12-4 record and a spot in the AFC Championship game. Peyton manning and the Broncos ended up being too much for them, however, and their season ended at Sports Authority Field in Denver.

This year, already the team has made some moves. Logan Mankins, the anchor of their offensive line for most of the last decade, was dealt to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a draft pick and tight end Timothy Wright. With concerns that tight end Rob Gronkowski may not be ready for the beginning of the year, Wright should be able to plug in and provide some help. Many prognosticators are predicting a bit of a drop in production from the Patriots this year, predicated on the age of their primary players, such as Tom Brady, and the health of Gronkowski and others.

Nonetheless, the Patriots are the pinnacle of the AFC East and that is most recognizable in demand for New England Patriots tickets on the secondary market. Below, we’ll look at their September schedule and breakdown their ticket prices for each game.

Chicago Bears Season Is Here

By David Jacobs | September 3rd, 2014

2013 brought in a new era for the Chicago Bears with head coach Marc Trestman developing an innovative and exciting offense, headlined by quarterback Jay Cutler. With Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery on the outside, Martellus Bennett in the middle, and Matt Forte in the backfield, the Bears offense have weapons all over the gridiron.

With the offense expected to put up gaudy stats in 2014, it will be up to the defense to keep the opposing team from finding the end zone too much. That was not the case in 2013, as the Bears struggled getting off the field defensively and lost several games late in the fourth quarter due to failed defensive stops.

There’s certainly hope for improvement this year, however, and that has translated into big prices for Chicago Bears tickets on the secondary market. Here’s a preview brought to you by Coast to Coast Tickets.

Week 1 (Sep. 7th) VS. Buffalo Bills | Average Price: $449 | Get-in: $181

The Bears open up with an AFC East opponent, the first time the Bills have visited Chicago in eight years. With an average price of $49, this is one of the most expensive games of the NFL season, though still significantly cheaper than the next home game on the Bears schedule.

An Update On Denver Broncos Tickets In September

By David Jacobs | September 2nd, 2014

As we inch closer and closer towards the beginning of the NFL season, fans are eagerly buying their tickets to the opening games of the season. Expectations may not be higher for any team than the Denver Broncos. Peyton Manning has led a historic offense over the past two years, falling just short in the Super Bowl last year. Manning is still healthy and despite Wes Welker’s struggles to avoid concussions, the Broncos look primed for another successful season.

With those high expectations, fans have been scouring the secondary market for affordable Broncos tickets. With two straight 13-3 finishes, chances are fans who visit Sports Authority Field this year will get to see a victory – and will get to watch an historic offense destroy all competition. More of the same could be coming and Denver fans seem fine with paying to see it happen in 2014.

We chronicled the early season matchups a few weeks ago here on the Coast to Coast Tickets Blog and have provided a further update on ticket prices below. Ticket prices have decreased for the matchup in Seattle, but have increased for the two home games. Now may just be the best time to grab your tickets for Denver’s Week 1 and Week 2 home games.

September Preview for Chargers Tickets

By David Jacobs | August 28th, 2014

The San Diego Chargers weren’t supposed to be a playoff team in 2013. However, it’s pretty rare when the Chargers end up being anything people expect them to be. 

New head coach Mike McCoy completely changed San Diego’s offense, and it led to the Chargers boasting one of the more balanced offensive attacks in the league. In turn, they gave the Denver Broncos a run fortheir money in three appearances (one in the playoffs) and could be looking at even more improvement in 2014. 

San diego chargers

Despite thatsteady improvement and hope for an even better 2014 season, San Diego Chargers tickets are still on the cheap side. Let’s see just how much value San Diego fans will be getting in 2014 as we take a look at the Bolts’ September games:

Week 1 (Sep. 8th)@ Arizona Cardinals | Average Price: $140 | Get-in: $41 

San Diego’s season opener is on the road against an improving Cardinals team, and comes at ridiculous value. Not only is it the first game of the year against a beatable opponent, butit’s also on Monday Night Football. San Diego’s pass defense was brutal in 2013 and will need to be markedly improved to havea chance at shutting down Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd, but overall this game could be quite a battle. 

Garth Brooks Tickets and Phish Tickets

By David Jacobs | August 21st, 2014

This week, there were several announcements regarding the upcoming tour plans of some of the biggest acts in music today. One of the first big announcements came from country singer Garth Brooks. The singer has already made headlines with his recent concert tour announcement, but now he is adding even more excitement by revealing plans for even more tour dates. After his first shows in Chicago quickly sold out, Brooks went on to add ten concerts in the Windy City to appease his fans. Now the singer is revealing plans for the second city along his world tour; Atlanta, Ga. The singer will be visiting Atlanta for a show at Philips Arena on September 19th. Tickets are on sale now for the show and they are expected to sell out fast. Brooks has also revealed plans to continue to announce his tour dates on a market-by-market basis as he heads out on this new global trek. Garth Tickets are currently available to see Brooks in Atlanta.

Season Preview for Lions Tickets

By David Jacobs | August 19th, 2014

The Detroit Lions were sitting pretty at 7-5 during the 2013 season. They had just soundly defeated the Green Bay Packers 40-10 at home, with Matthew Stafford throwing for 330 yards, 101 of them going to Calvin Johnson. But the following week, amid a snow storm for the record books, the Lions could not contain LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles, losing 34-20. That was the first of a four game losing streak which ultimately derailed their season.

Detroit Lions

But 2014 is a new slate for Detroit and fans are excited at the prospects for this current roster. Eric Ebron, a tight end out of North Carolina, was added with then tenth overall draft pick and expects to be an immediate contributor to the offense. Considering this team is just three years removed from a playoff appearance, expectations are high.

Currently, the average ticket price of Detroit Lions tickets is $144. The two highest priced games are the home opener – September 8th against the New York Giants – and Thanksgiving Day, November 27th against the Chicago Bears. Tickets for the opener begin at $66 with an average price of $181. The Thanksgiving Day matchup is a bit more expensive, currently, with a get-in price of $72 and an average ticket price of $218.

Red Sox Tickets Will Not Be Cheap For Final Series Of The Year

By David Jacobs | August 17th, 2014

The Boston Red Sox have certainly not lived up to expectations this season, but that doesn’t mean Red Sox tickets will be any cheaper for the final series of the year. In fact, those three games will end up being the most expensive tickets all season long for Boston, other than their ring ceremony at the home opener. No, fans are not willing to pay extra to see their beloved Sox play one more series in 2014. They will be paying to see the New York Yankees, and in particular, shortstop Derek Jeter.

Yankees vs red sox rivalry

The Yankee captain announced he would retire at the end of the season back in Spring Training and with the Yankees seemingly losing ground in the Wild Card each and every day, it appears Jeter’s last time on the diamond will be on September 26th, 27th, and 28th at Fenway Park. With the Red Sox out of the playoff race, and a strong probability that the Yankees will be as well, the series will be much more ceremonial than if either team were still playing for something.  Expect videos, photographs, and collages galore, praising the longevity of Derek Jeter and what he brought to sport’s greatest rivalry.
