22. Arizona Cardinals
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $153
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $163
> Current record: 5-7
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 68,206 (101.4% capacity)

Injuries to star running back David Johnson and quarterback Carson Palmer derailed the Arizona Cardinals’ season. Despite the disappointment, Cardinals fans have stayed loyal. Going into Week 14, tickets have only dropped $10 on average from $163 to $153, and Arizona still has one of the highest attendance percentages in the NFL at 101.4% of the stadium’s capacity.

21. Kansas City Chiefs
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $163
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $179
> Current record: 6-6
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 73,333 (98.5% capacity)

Though tickets for the Kansas City Chiefs’ rivalry game against the Oakland Raiders are selling for $199, tickets for the team’s two other remaining home games are much less expensive, at $156 and $151. After looking dominant for the first half of the season, the Chiefs have lost four in a row and six of their last seven. Chiefs fans may be sensing disaster for the team.

20. Chicago Bears
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $166
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $230
> Current record: 3-9
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 69,681 (100.0% capacity)

The Chicago Bears have seen one of the steepest drops in home ticket prices, and their final game at home against the Browns will be the cheapest of the season. The Bears are struggling at 3-9, and the initial excitement of seeing rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky play may have worn off. Still, the Bears have passionate fans and Chicagoans are willing to bear down and sit through cold weather to watch their team. Soldier Field has been 100.0% full on average for Bears games in 2017.

19. New Orleans Saints
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $202
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $195
> Current record: 9-3
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 71,565 (100.3% capacity)

For one of the most dominant teams in the NFL, tickets at the Superdome have been relatively inexpensive this season. The Saints, with one of the most exciting players to watch this year, rookie running back Alvin Kamara, lead the NFC South. New Orleans’ remaining two games at home are split between one unexciting matchup with the lowly Jets in Week 15 and a potential game of the week against the Falcons the following week.

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $206
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $194
> Current record: 4-8
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 69,411 (91.9% capacity)

Though the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-8) were hoping for a better start to their season, the team’s tickets are increasing in value. The average price of a seat for the first five home games was $194, but the average price for the final three games is $206, largely because of the Bucs’ Week 17 rivalry matchup with the Saints.
