The New York “Football” Giants began the 2013 season looking to avenge last season’s disappointing ending after going 2-3 down the stretch and missing the playoffs. The Giants have not looked like the team which won the Super Bowl two short years ago. Their defense has not been able to slow anyone down and their running game has been nonexistent after losing Ahmad Bradshaw in free agency. Despite their lousy play thus far, the Giants still boast one of the highest ticket averages among the league at $283, ranking them fifth in the TiqIQ Power Rankings this season. As they enter their bye week on a two-game winning streak, New York is hoping to turn things around in the second half of this season. Helping the Giants out is the fact that they play five of their last eight games at home.
11/10 vs Raiders: Avg $306 | Get-in $90
In their first game after the break, New York will hope to extend their winning streak to three games (dating back to week seven). The Giants host the Oakland Raiders and upstart quarterback Terrelle Pryor. New York’s defense must be able to contain Pryor in the pocket and stop him from using his elusiveness to beat them.
The secondary market is averaging $306 for this game, with a low price of $90.
11/17 vs Packers: Avg $265 | Get-in $82
The Giants host the Green Bay Packers on Nov. 17 in their second of a three-game home-stand. Traditionally, Eli Manning has performed his best against the Packers, throwing for an average of 281 yards per game in six career contests.
Tickets for this shootout are currently averaging $265 per seat, with a base-level price of $82.
11/24 vs Cowboys: Avg $359 | Get-in $126
Giants vs. Cowboys is as big of a rivalry as any in the NFL. These two teams hate each other, making this must-watch television. There is nothing the Giants would like more than to help keep Dallas out of the playoffs.
Tickets for this game are 25% more than the typical Giants home game. They are currently selling for an average of $359 per ticket.
12/15 vs Seahawks: Avg $250 | Get-in $72
The Seattle Seahawks are one of the most complete teams in the NFL and are a popular choice to win it all this season. The Seahawks are hoping that this won’t be their only trip to MetLife Stadium (location of Super Bowl XLVII) during 2013-14.
Tickets for this match-up are $30 below the normal going rate for Giants home games. This is currently the second cheapest game of the year for New York.
12/29 vs Redskins: Avg $257 | Get-in $76
In their final game of the season the New York Giants play the Washington Redskins. It’s the second meeting between the two franchises in a month’s time. Eli Manning will do everything in his power to end the season on a high note.
As the third cheapest game of the 2013 season, Giants tickets for this contest are going for an average of $257 on the secondary market with a low price of $76.
New York’s only road games in the second half of the season all come in the month of December. On the first of the month they travel to Washington to play the Redskins. They then head out west to San Diego the following week. Tickets for both games are averaging $165.
The Giants final road game of the season takes place on December 22nd when they battle the Lions in Detroit. Tickets for that game are averaging $125, with a low price of $38.
The New York Giants didn’t start the 2013 NFL season as they had hoped, sitting at 2-6 through their first eight games, but with their final eight games coming against teams with a combined record of 29-27, they hope to finish the year out strong.
