7. Miami Dolphins
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $344
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $294
> Current record: 5-7
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 71,446 (99.6% capacity)
For many NFL games, the home team isn’t as important for ticket prices as the visitors, and it appears that’s the case in Miami. The Dolphins are hosting the New England Patriots in Week 14, and tickets for that game sell for an average of $465. Tickets to the Week 17 home finale against the Buffalo Bills are hundreds of dollars cheaper, at $242. Dolphins fans are likely eager to see if their team can knock off the dominant Patriots, and there could be plenty of New England residents planning a trip to warmer climates to watch the Patriots.
6. Philadelphia Eagles
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $348
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $332
> Current record: 10-2
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 78,070 (103.0% capacity)
The Eagles are one of the NFL’s four 10-2 teams and the only one of the four to average over 100% capacity for home games this year. Philadelphia’s Week 17 match at home against division rival Dallas is going to be one of the most expensive games of the season, with after-market tickets for that game averaging $433.
5. Atlanta Falcons
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $364
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $395
> Current record: 7-5
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 68,634 (95.3% capacity)
Coming off an NFC Championship and playing in the brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Atlanta Falcons have a lot going for them. Many sports fans in Georgia and beyond are likely clamoring to see the state-of-the-art facility while checking out one of the NFL’s most exciting teams. That combined excitement is a likely explanation for the high ticket prices.
4. Seattle Seahawks
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $366
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $393
> Current record: 8-4
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 72,161 (102.9% capacity)
Seattle Seahawks fans are known as the 12th man because their loud cheering is said to give the team a significant home field advantage. With fans that passionate, it makes sense that tickets in Seattle are more expensive than almost anywhere else. Ticket prices have averaged well over $300 all season and could continue to climb in anticipation of a Rams-Seahawks matchup, which could determine the winner of the NFC West.
3. Dallas Cowboys
> Avg. remaining home ticket price: $404
> Avg. home game price through wk. 13: $403
> Current record: 6-6
> Avg. 2017 home attendance: 72,868 (116.0% capacity)
Dallas is having less than an ideal year, thanks in part to the loss of Ezekiel Elliott to a six-game suspension. The Cowboys have lost three of the four games they’ve played since their star running back began serving his suspension and are now 6-6. Still, America’s team, which operates in a massive market and has fans all over the country, is a major draw whether it is good or bad. And the Cowboys games against Philadelphia and the competitive Raiders is projected to be the most expensive games for the remainder of the season between any two teams.
