The Dallas Cowboys are a team stuck in a rut entering 2013. They haven’t been in the playoffs since 2010 and have only seen one playoff victory in the Tony Romo era.
While Romo is around for good thanks to a fat new contract this off-season, it’s put up or shut up time for head coach Jason Garrett entering the new season. What happens this season won’t dictate anything for Romo’s status with the Cowboys, but no one can deny it will continue to say a lot about his personal legend.
With the NFC East being a thorn in the Cowboys’ playoff sides the past two years (two straight season finale losses keeping them from the post-season) TiqIQ breaks down the price for Dallas Cowboys tickets in their six division battles.
Divisional Home Games:
(9/8) vs. New York Giants | Avg: $259 | Get-in: $75
Dallas welcomes Eli Manning and the NY Giants into town to kickoff the 2013 season, which is clearly a game loads of Cowboys and Giants fans are going to be ramped up for. As big of a game as it is to help start the season, it’s still 5% below the Cowboys’ home game season average.
(10/13) vs. Washington Redskins | Avg: $283 | Get-in: $82
The most expensive divisional home game for Dallas happens to be the Redskins in early October, as Robert Griffin III and Tony Romo face off yet again. It’s the first meeting for the two sides since RG3 kept the ‘Boys out of last year’s playoffs, and is still just 3% more expensive than Dallas’ season average.
(12/29) vs. Philadelphia Eagles | Avg: $241 | $52
The Eagles rank last in the Cowboys’ divisional home game price rankings, but this is still a battle to watch. Chip Kelly and his potentially high-scoring offense come into town in late December, and this one could carry playoff ramnifications for either or both sides. With it being a heated battle so late in the season, it’s no shock it comes in at 12% higher than the average Cowboys home contest.
Divisional Road Games:
(10/20) @ Philadelphia Eagles | Avg: $244 | Get-in: $83
The Eagles were the cheapest home game inside the NFC East for Dallas, and you can say the same for their road matchup. That shouldn’t take away from the potential competitiveness of either battle, but it’s likely we see a closer contest with the Cowboys on the road in this one. Not surprisingly, this one is a tad more expensive with it being in Philly.
(11/24) @ New York Giants | Avg: $367 | $148
The Cowboys and Giants get the season started in epic fashion with a home opener battle in Dallas, but this late November meeting actually ends up being way more expensive. There’s more on the line this late in the season, and this one could be even more heated and meaningful than their week one battle.
(12/22) @ Washington Redskins | Avg: $304 | Get-in: $62
Tony Romo won’t have to worry about RG3 keeping him out of the playoffs with a season finale loss, but this late-season clash could still carry serious playoff weight. It’s an epic division clash, so it’s no surprise that it comes in at $304 on average.
