It may have not always seemed so certain. In fact, at times it seemed like the only football we’d be seeing this fall would be on Saturdays. But after months of negotiating, the dispute between the NFL and the player’s union is over, and finally, we can ask without any doubt: are you ready for some football?
The 2011 NFL season is starting off at a manic pace, as this year, free-agency and pre-season basically happen at the same time. There is so much to break down in the coming weeks, especially when it comes to NFL tickets. For starters, check out the 2011 Hottest Pre-Pre-Season Tickets below.

FanSnap is your #1 source this year for all things NFL tickets. Whether it be week-by-week updates, FanDemand Rankings, or Best Value ticket updates, we’ve got you covered on the best NFL tickets at the best possible values.
You know us. Whenever there’s sports, theater or concert news, we like to take a look and see if that news is impacting fans’ desire for tickets. This morning was no exception. No, we’re pretty sure the Royal Wedding did not impact live event tickets. The 2011 NFL draft, however, may have gotten fans excited about their team.
We took a look at the average ticket market price for each NFL team’s home games. Like the stock market, ticket market prices can swing wildly on big news. Big news like LeBron taking his talents to South Beach or the Vikings signing Bret Favre… twice… can have a big impact on tickets.
Fans understand the NFL draft rarely yields players that can have the sort of immediate impact of a Favre, Vick or James so the the swings in ticket prices are more muted. Still, with everyone and their brother grading teams on how they did in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, we thought we take a look from the fans point of view.
TICKET DEMAND ON THE RISE
The vast majority of teams saw ticket market prices fall today, but there were a few exceptions. The Pittsburgh Steelers took Cameron Heyward (DT, Ohio St.). Today tickets market prices for Steelers home games are up $5. Steelers tickets were by far the big gainer.
Other teams with tickets up today were the Ravens (Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado), the 49ers (Aldon Smith, DE, Missouri), and the Saints (Cameron Jordan, DE, California and Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama).
SOFTENING TICKET DEMAND
The Titans (Jake Locker, QB, Washington), Bears (Gabe Carimi, OL, Wisconsin), Jags (Blaine Gabbert, QB, Missouri) and Texans (J.J. Watt, DE, Wisconsin) saw ticket demand wane by as much as $12. There are two quarterbacks on that list. Could it be fans upset about missing out on the Cam Newton sweepstakes?
We’re only through the first round of the 2011 NFL draft. There are bound to be more great picks, trades and holes filled that will excite some fans and worry others. We’ll keep our eyes on the data.

What Will Ticket Prices Do?
The wild cards in the mix are the fans of the other two teams that could have been going to Dallas. New York is a massive market with fan base and Chicago fans have been hungry for championship tickets — driving up ticket prices for the Stanley Cup finals and the NFC Championship game.
Jets and Bears fans were in the market for Super Bowl tickets yesterday and will likely be sellers this week. All of that activity will have an impact on the ticket market. Just what that impact will be is jet to be seen.

This Sunday’s AFC and NFC Championship games feature some of the most intriguing teams of the entire NFL season. In the AFC, The New York Jets and head Coach Rex Ryan travel to Pittsburgh to take on QB Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. Ryan knows how to shut down an offense, after backing up his trash talk last weekend against the New England Patriots. Roethlisberger is Superbowl proven, though, and knows how to win in the clutch. Whoever comes out of this one alive belongs in final.
The NFC Championship game is between the red-hot Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears in a rivalry that has captured the attention of fans around the country. Aaron Rodgers has had a stellar passer rating of 126 since coming back from his week 15 concussion, and he completely dismantled the Falcons secondary last weekend. But the Bears are best known for one thing: defense. This will be an epic showdown, and the winner will undoubtedly deserve a spot in the Superbowl.
We have rarely ever seen tickets in such high demand in the playoffs. Luckily, FanSnap can help football fans get the best NFL Playoff tickets at the best possible value. And if your team happens to win through, you’re definitely going to want to check back here for the best Superbowl tickets.

Week 2 NFL Playoff: Preview and Best Value Tickets
- The Seahawks pulled off a massive upset against the defending Super Bowl champs this weekend: they’ll have to beat the odds again this weekend when the take on the Bears. The weather at Soldier Field will likely be a factor, as is the case in Chicago around this time of year. The Seahawks beat the Bears at Soldier field during the regular season, but with the worst regular season record of any Playoff team in history, can the Seahawks once again pull off the improbable and get to the NFC Championship game? Check out some Best Value tickets below.
- The Jets and Pats split the regular season matchups – each team winning a game. The Patriots destroyed the Jets (45-3) just a few weeks ago. Can the Jets get their heads right for the rematch this weekend? The Patriots are the favorite to win this Divisional Playoff. Likely MVP candidate Tom Brady will be ready to take on the Jets potent defense: expect a thrilling finale to this rivalry.
- Another rivalry re-match, the Steelers and the Ravens each took a game off one another in the regular season. We know these teams like to play hard defense and run the ball. If history is any indicator, this will be a low scoring, but exciting chess match between two great teams and two great coaches.
- The Packers are one of those teams that seemed to have underachieved this season, due to a number of significant injuries to members of their starting lineup. A bit healthier now, the Packers could easily take down the NFC best Falcons this weekend.

If there was ever a time to clear your calender for pig-skin related priorities, this is the weekend to do it. Between Thursday Night Football (Texans @ Eagles), Saturday’s NCAA championship games, Sunday’s slew of games, and Mondays paramount match-up of rivals (Jets @ Pats), you have every reason in the world to forgo putting up those holiday decorations for a few more days.
Our FanDemand rankings are back for Week 13, and some of the usual suspects occupy the top six.
FanDemand Game Rankings, Week 13
- Pittsburgh Steelers @ Baltimore Ravens: $457
- New York Jets @ New England Patriots, MNF: $325
- Dallas Cowboys @ Indianapolis Colts: $292
- Washington Redskins @ New York Giants: $255
- Oakland Raiders @ San Diego Chargers: $249
- San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers, Sunday: $184
- Debate all you will about which rivalry is more intense, but our FanDemand ranks show Steelers-Ravens tickets are in greater demand this weekend with a $130 higher average ticket price. Both teams are 8-3, both teams are gunning for first place in the AFC North, and both teams are gunning for a win on Sunday night.
- Even though Jets-Patriots tickets are significantly lower in our FanDemand, expect fireworks on Monday night. Brady has been playing like an MVP quarterback lately, but the staunch Jets defense will do their best to shut them down. It’s going to be a good one in Foxboro.
- The ‘Boys are 2-1 since firing Wade Phillips, and a win against an injured Colts team would really brighten the mood down in Dallas.
- Phillip Rivers looks like he may break Dan Marino’s passing record this season, and we all know what the Chargers can do in the last quarter of the season (hint: they win, a lot). Fans in SoCal are getting stoked on their home team… its kind of nice to see the Bolts within the ranks of the FanDemand.
FanSnap can help fans get the best deals on NFL tickets for the rest of the regular season and through the playoffs.
We are officially half way through the NFL season, and it’s been an interesting one. What was up is down and what was down is up…
When Randy Moss returned to the Minnesota Vikings a few weeks ago, the team looked like it had deep playoff potential. Fast forward to this week: Brett Favre might as well be running the offense from a wheelchair, and the Vikings just waived Randy Moss for poor performances both on and off the field. At 2 and 5 and what looks like waning confidence in coach Brad Childress, the Vikings may have trouble even reaching the playoffs.
The Cowboys still might take the cake, though, as their 1-6 record has no real signs of improving. Tony Romo is out. Coach Wade Phillips may need to start looking for another job, even though owner Jerry Jones has taken the blame for his team’s poor performance this season.
NFL FanDemand: What’s the hottest Matchup of Week 9?
- Miami Dolphins @ Baltimore Ravens, 11/7: $331
- New York Giants @ Seattle Seahawks, 11/7: $255
- Indianapolis Colts @ Philadelphia Eagles, 11/7: $230
- Dallas Cowboys @ Green Bay Packers, 11/7: $216
- Chicago Bears @ Buffalo Bills, 11/7: $185
- Atop this week’s FanDemand is one of the weekend’s best match-ups on paper, as Dolphins-Ravens tickets are averaging $331. Miami has endured a tough schedule, and star wide receiver Brandon Marshall and quarterback Chad Henne will try to shred through the Ravens staunch defense.
- The Giants are always high on our FanDemand team rankings, so it’s no surprise to see them driving up ticket prices in Seattle this weekend. Eli Manning has been on fire for team Jet Blue, but don’t be surprised if Pete Carroll can pull of an upset in this one.
- Colts-Eagles tickets are the third hottest in FanDemand this week. These are two teams would love a strong win here, and although Philly may be a bit of an underdog, even at home, this one will likely be one of the best match-ups of the weekend.
Here are the Top 10 NFL teams based on FanDemand
- Chicago Bears: $337.75
- New York Giants: $322.00
- Pittsburgh Steelers: $317.60
- New Orleans Saints: $299.33
- Baltimore Ravens: $295.20
- New England Patriots: $270.40
- Dallas Cowboys: $251.00
- Indianapolis Colts: $249.60
- Philadelphia Eagles: $231.60
- Green Bay Packers: $224.25
In our team by team FanDemand analysis, Green Bay Packers tickets have fallen out of the top five for the first time this season. Also, Saints tickets have dropped from the top down to fourth hottest in the league with an average price of $299.
For the best values on the best NFL tickets, remember to check out FanSnap all season long.
Last weekend was intense in the NFL. Helmet-to-helmet hits landed players on the sidelines, and have NFL officials seriously considering how to handle something that has long been considered “part of the game.” On a lighter note, there was some great football around the league this weekend.
Deion Branch returned to the New England Patriots who beat the Baltimore Ravens in OT. The Dolphins also beat the Packers in overtime. The Jets came back, somewhat controversially, to beat the Broncos late in the fourth quarter. The Texans also had a fourth quarter comeback against the Chiefs. Close games, and the absence of an undefeated team, all show just how competitive the league is this year.
Below are FanDemand rankings for Week #7 (this week, with graphs!).
NFL FanDemand Week 7: Game Rankings
- Washington Redskins @ Chicago Bears: $431.00
- Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers: $345.00
- New England Patriots @ San Diego Chargers: $260.00
- Cleveland Browns @ New Orleans Saints: $256.00
- New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys: $241.00
- Buffalo Bills @ Baltimore Ravens: $228
- As if Brett Favre isn’t in the news enough already, this weekend, he heads back to Green Bay to take on the Packers. There will be some drama here, so its not surprise to see Vikings-Packers tickets at the second spot in FanDemand.
- In a battle of East and West, the 4-1 Patriots take on the struggling 2-4 Chargers, who just lost back-to-back games to the Raiders and the Rams. San Diego fans need a win and Patriots-Chargers tickets are at #3 this week because of it.
- In all honesty, we’re a bit perplexed to have even seen the Buffalo Bills in our FanDemand analysis. Frankly, there isn’t anything exciting about this 0-5 team. Maybe we should applaud the Ravens fans who will pay top dollar to see their team dominate anyone. Because in the end, little stands between Flacco, Ray Rice and co. from taking this one with ease.
- America’s Team is looking pretty un-American this year with a Cowboys record of 1-4, and their Monday night game against the Giants is a must win.
NFL FanDemand Week 7: Team Rankings

As we enter Week #4 of the 2010 NFL Season, some teams have played well and gone undefeated, while others have struggled and have been unable to get a win. How does this effect a team’s FanDemand?
Every week, we sit down and look at all the NFL tickets listed on FanSnap — collected from ticket sites across the web. From this data, we can establish “FanDemand”: that is, the overall average ticket price for each individual team in the league.
We took a look at how a team’s record affected their FanDemand. We took each undefeated team, and each win-less team, and compared FanDemand rankings from Week #2 and Week #4 (this week). Take a look below to see how a team’s success or struggles may influence their average overall ticket price.
Undefeated Teams (3-0)
- Kansas City Chiefs: As of Week #2, the Chiefs were ranked 20th in FanDemand with an average ticket price of $153. In Week #4, Kansas City Chiefs tickets have climbed to 17th on our rankings, with an average price of $155.
- Chicago Bears: In Week #2, the Bears were ranked 3rd in FanDemand; in Week #4, they climbed one spot to #2. Chicago Bears tickets experienced a jolt in average ticket price, as it rose from $283 to $311 in three weeks. That’s a 10% increase in overall average ticket price.
- Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers are always high on the FanDemand rankings, only moving one spot down, from #4 to #5 between Weeks #2 and #4. Pittsburgh Steelers tickets still grew in demand, however, as the average ticket price rose from $271 to $275 in those weeks.
Teams Without a Win (0-3)
- San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers have dropped from 12th to 13th in FanDemand, as their average ticket prices have dropped from $203 to $190 from Week #2 to Week #4 (a 6.5% drop).
- Buffalo Bills: Average prices of Buffalo Bills tickets have remained the same since Week #2 at $118. Still, the Bills have moved up one spot in FanDemand, from 30th to 29th.
- Cleveland Browns: As of Week # 2, the Browns were 29th in FanDemand. Now, they are 31st. Cleveland Browns tickets, on average, have dropped from $120 to $113 in these weeks: that’s a 6% drop in price.
- Carolina Panthers: The Carolina Panthers have been stuck at 27th on the FanDemand rankings, while Carolina Panthers tickets have dropped from $133 to $128 (a 4% drop in average ticket price).
Probably the most telling number here is the drop in San Francisco 49ers ticket prices, as well as their drop in FanDemand rankings. It seems expectations are always high for the 49ers going into a new season. This year, they just haven’t gotten it all right yet, as reflected by their 0-3 record.
Chicago Bears fans are some of the most passionate in the country. Bears tickets have been in the top 5 FanDemand since the pre-season. With their success this season, can they rise to #1?
It’s almost October, and it seems like the last three weeks of NFL action have flown by. What match-ups are the hottest to open up next month?
- The undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers host the 2-1 Baltimore Ravens this Sunday, and this game takes top spot on our FanDemand rankings for the week with an average ticket price of $310. The Steelers just destroyed the Bucaneers, and the Ravens are coming off a strong victory against the Browns, led by Joe Flacco’s three touch down passes. Ravens-Steelers tickets are the hottest in the country this week, with good reason.
- The New Orleans Saints are consistently at the top of our FanDemand rankings, and this week is no different. The Carolina Panthers come to New Orleans this Sunday, and Panthers-Saints tickets are averaging $271 on the secondary ticket market, which places the game at #2 on this week’s FanDemand.
- With some interesting off-field controversy brewing (think quarterback controversy with the Eagles and McNabb’s return to Philly), Redskins-Eagles tickets are the third hottest this weekend with an average ticket price of $250. The Eagles are at 2-1 and look to open up a substantial lead in the NFC East, while the ‘Skins need a win to pull themselves to .500 on the season.
- Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers 10/3/10: $310.00
- Carolina Panthers @ New Orleans Saints 10/3/10: $271.00
- Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles 10/3/10: $250.00
- Detroit Lions @ Green Bay Packers 10/3/10: $232.00
- Chicago Bears @ New York Giants 10/3/10: $219.00
- New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins 10/4/10: $193.00
NFL Team by Team FanDemand Rankings
Below are the team by team overall average ticket prices for the rest of the 2010 regular season. Not much movement on the list this week, other than seeing New York Jets tickets and San Diego Chargers tickets fall out of the Top 10.
- New Orleans Saints: $346.67
- Chicago Bears: $311.33
- New York Giants: $285.17
- Green Bay Packers: $283.00
- Pittsburgh Steelers: $275.86

- Minnesota Vikings: $181.17
We’ve made it to our top 5 FanDemand rankings for this upcoming 2010 NFL Season. And ranking 5th on our list is the Chicago Bears.
The Chicago Bears are in a tough spot: last year, they were barely good enough to beat the Detroit Lions but not up to par with the likes of the Minnesota Vikings or the Green Bay Packers. This season, however, may be a different story: many believe the Bears will be a different team because of coach Mike Martz’s influence. Jay Cutler will most likely improve under Martz’s offensive scheme, and with a more positive Cutler comes a better overall offensive attack.
So that means Cutler’s wide receivers, Johnny Knox, Devin Hester, and Devin Aromashodu could potentially all have break-out seasons. Any three of these guys could come strong out of the gate and prove themselves to be worthy of double coverage. Running backs Matt Forte and veteran Chester Taylor round out the Bears offense, and expect to see a lot of them considering the importance of the run game, especially in the NFC North.
Chicago loves it’s sports teams, as evident by Chicago Bears tickets being the 5th hottest in the league this season. Da’ Bears start off their 2010 campaign at home against the Detroit Lions. FanSnap is showing plenty of Best Value Lions-Bears tickets, some as much as 62% off the average ticket price of similar tickets for this game.
The next big match up in the Chicago Bears schedule is when the Green Bay Packers come to town. This game is the huge, considering its potential to forecast what the makeup of the NFC North standing might look like at the end of the season. Be sure to find the best value Packers-Bears tickets at FanSnap.

Ranked #6 on our FanDemand rankings is the Philadelphia Eagles.
Any assessment of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010 has to start with a discussion of their changes at the quarterback position. Donovan McNabb, who played for the Eagles for the last ten years, is out (he moved down to Washington DC). Kevin Kolb is in. Much of Philadelphia is pleased with this transition, although the time is now for Kolb to prove himself as a legitimate leader of the offense. If any coach is capable of making that happen, its got to be Andy Reid, so expect great things this year from Kolb.
Even the backfield has some changes to work through: no longer will Brian Westbrook be the Eagles’ number one running back: rather, Lesean McCoy will be the go-to back this season. Up and coming star wide receiver Desean Jackson will have to adjust to a new quarterback, but fans can expect some great things out of him this year, as well.
It is a near universal truth that Eagles fans are some of the most passionate in all of sports, so it’s almost expected to see Philadelphia Eagles tickets on the top ten of FanSnap’s FanDemand rankings.
The Eagles start it off with a bang against the Green Bay Packers this weekend. Packers-Eagles tickets are going fast on FanSnap, but we still can help you find “Best Value” tickets for this game throughout the week.
The NFC East is pretty stacked this year, so expect any inner-division game to be in high demand. The Washington Redskins visit Philly on October 3rd: you can be sure that Eagles fans will let McNabb know just how much they miss him (our guess is, it won’t be a warm welcome). Redskins-Eagles tickets are going to be a tough find, but we’re is showing over 9,000 tickets for sale, so check it out.
Another great match-up will be in week 16 and 17 when the Eagles host the Vikings and Cowboys back to back. No doubt, these games will probably be crucial for either teams hopes of making the playoff’s, so find your Vikings-Eagles tickets and Cowboys-Eagles tickets at FanSnap.
For all of your Philadelphia Eagles tickets, at home and on the road, FanSnap can help fans find the best possible tickets at the best possible values.

Coming in at #7 on FanSnap’s FanDemand rankings is the Dallas Cowboys.
This year, the Dallas Cowboys are one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL. Their offense is intimidating to say the least, with Tony Romo at the helm and breakout receiver Miles Austin running routes downfield. And don’t forget Felix Jones leading the rushing attack. Coach Wade Phillips has a lot of talent to work with this season, so expect every Dallas Cowboys game to be a thriller.
It’s really no surprise that Dallas Cowboys tickets are among the hottest in the league. The new Cowboy’s Stadium is a modern monstrosity, and Cowboys fans are die hard and live from coast to coast. The Cowboy’s kick of the 2010 NFL regular season with a game against the revamped Washington Redskins. It’s a great rivalry, and there are definitely going to be some Cowboy’s fans in DC for the game, so check out FanSnap for the best Cowboys-Redskins tickets.
Another great game to watch out for is when the defending superbowl champion New Orleans Saints visit Cowboy’s Stadium in Dallas on Thursday, November 25. Tickets to this game are averaging $380, which is up 16% from the Cowboy’s overall season average ticket price of $327.

Coming in at number 8 on FanSnap’s NFL FanDemand rankings is the Baltimore Ravens.
The Baltimore Ravens are a real threat to win the AFC North this coming season. Third year starter Joe Flacco will look to lead an improved offense into the post season. The Ravens did a good job of bolstering the receiving core around him as well, with the signing of Anquan Boldin. He, with veteran Derrick Mason, can really stretch defenses, and this duo is one to be feared by any defense in the league. And when you one of the top running backs in the league, Ray Rice, you have a potent offense that will put up some serious points and yardage.
The fact that Baltimore Ravens tickets are ranked 8th on FanSnap’s FanDemand rankings is a testament to the overall excitement around the team and its potential to win games this season.
The Baltimore Ravens start the season off on the road against the New York Jets, which is one of the most exciting match-ups of the opening week. Both teams are drastically improved since last year, and whoever comes out on top will be in good shape for the rest of the season. Check out some great deals on Ravens-Jets tickets at FanSnap.

At #9 on FanSnap’s FanDemand list is the Washington Redskins.
The ‘Skins are a much changed team since last season. The organization has made a number of important signings and trades. Among the most important is the signing of ex-Denver Bronco coach Mike Shanahan, who will undoubtedly change the nature of the team and the way it plays.
The Washington Redskins other key addition is quarterback Donovan Mcnabb, who will have to play a few games against his previous team, the Philadelphia Eagles. Rounding out the attack for the Redskins is Clinton Portis, who played a season under Shanahan in Denver in 2002-2003. Portis won a Rookie of the Year award under Shanahan’s run heavy offense, so look for him to have a killer year under his old coach.
Washington Redskins tickets are among the hottest in the country this season, and their tough schedule proves this point. The ‘Skins start with their home opener against the Dallas Cowboys, one of the most anticipated match-ups of the opening week. Check out FanSnap for some Best Value Cowboys-Redskins tickets. For example, find seats in Zone A Club Level 320 for $330, which is 61% off the average price of tickets in this section.
And don’t miss the game when McNabb’s old team, the Philadelphia Eagles come to DC on November 15. For the best possible Eagles-Redskins tickets at the greatest possible value, look no further than Fansnap.

To kick off our NFL Ticket Preview special, we start with #10 on FanSnap’s Pre-Season Rankings, the San Diego Chargers.
The Chargers are always a well respected team coming out of the West Coast. This year, they are on the hunt for their fifth straight AFC West title, without the likes of star running back LaDainian Tomlinson. Although this puts a serious damper on the Bolts running attack, quarterback Phillip Rivers may be among the most talented in the league. With tight end Antonio Gates and wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd completely the passing game, Rivers will lead an extremely potent Chargers offense, with a keen eye towards the playoffs.
San Diego Chargers tickets are highly sought after this year, which is understandable considering the more anticipated match-ups within their schedule. The New England Patriots are due to visit Southern California on Sunday October 24th. Average prices for Patriots-Chargers tickets are $303 on the secondary ticket market: this is 12% increase over their season long average ticket price of $272.
