12. New York Giants
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $248
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $243
> Current record: 2-10
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 71,679 (93.6% capacity)

As far as unmitigated disasters go, few NFL teams this year fit the bill better than the Giants. The team finished last season with an 11-5 record — thanks in large part to superhuman wide receiver Odell Beckham. But nothing has gone right for the 2-10 Giants this year, and ODB’s devastating season-ending injury in Week 5 was the nail in the coffin. The Giants even benched two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning for Geno Smith. On December 4, the team fired head coach Ben McAdoo and long-time General Manager Jerry Reese.

11. Green Bay Packers
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $274
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $240
> Current record: 6-6
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 70,887 (107.1% capacity)

The Green Bay Packers are known for having passionate fans. There are more than 125,000 people on the waiting list for season tickets, so it’s no surprise fans have to shell out good money for a ticket. The Packers have just one home game left, and it’s against the NFC North-leading Minnesota Vikings. The Packers still hope to make the playoffs, especially with MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers rumored to be close to a return from a collarbone injury — and that Vikings game could be crucial.

10. Pittsburgh Steelers
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $283
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $287
> Current record: 10-2
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 66,411 (98.6% capacity)

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the most passionate fan bases in the NFL, and ticket prices certainly reflect that. The Steelers’ Week 15 game against the New England Patriots could decide who gets the first seed in the AFC playoffs, The Steelers’ Week 15 game against the New England Patriots could decide who gets the first seed in the AFC playoffs, and ticket prices for that game average $436.

9. Denver Broncos
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $334
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $425
> Current record: 3-9
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 67,024 (100.6% capacity)

A promising 3-1 start for the Denver Broncos has completely tanked. The Broncos have lost their last eight games and would need a miracle to make the playoffs. Still, Broncos tickets are among the most expensive in the league, but they started out even pricier. Ticket prices to a game in Denver averaged $425 for the first six games, but the average for the final two home games has dropped more than $90 to $334.

8. Los Angeles Chargers
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $336
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $282
> Current record: 6-6
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 71,351 (0.0% capacity)

The tickets for Chargers games may be expensive, but that doesn’t mean they are in high demand. The Chargers have the lowest attendance in the league by a wide margin, even though the team is tied for first place in the AFC West. In Week 17, the Chargers face the Oakland Raiders, who were once a Los Angeles team, in Week 17.
