No team wanted to see the Green Bay Packers on their schedules when they were released last week. With Aaron Rodgers under center, winner of the 2014 NFL MVP award, the Packers are capable of beating any team at any given time. This season, the Packers may be even scarier, fueled by a playoff collapse that people had to see to believe.
The Packers were minutes away from a trip to the Super Bowl before fumbling an opportunity to beat the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Championship game — on a simple onside kick, to be specific. Teams are always looking for that extra something to push them over the edge, and the Packers certainly have that something for 2015.
Green Bay scored the most points in the NFL last season (486), and they were one of two teams that averaged over 30 points per game (Denver).
The Packers are always a hot ticket and have one of the top traveling fan bases in the NFL. Fans love to see points being scored and the Packers can fill it up with the best of them. According to SeatSmart, Green Bay Packers tickets to their most home expensive and least expensive game are below.
Most Expensive: 11/01/2015 | Denver Broncos vs. Green Bay Packers | Sports Authority Field At Mile High | Average Price: $716.61 | Get-in Price: $297
As already mentioned, these were the only two teams in football to average over 30 points a game. Peyton Manning facing Rodgers should be a good one as the teams look to light up the scoreboard in Green Bay’s most expensive game on the secondary market. It may be the last time Manning and Rodgers go up against each other, as rumors are swirling that Manning’s illustrious career is close to coming to an end. Don’t forget to set fantasy lineups before this one, as this mid-season matchup should be one of the more hyped up games of the regular season.
Least Expensive:12/3/2015 | Detroit Lions vs. Green Bay Packers | Ford Field | Average Price: $238.03 | Get-in Price: $68
With Matthew Stafford turning into one of the better quarterbacks in the league, the matchups between these two NFC North division rivals are usually tightly contested. In Week 3, the Lions caught the Packers early in the season before they had it all figured out, holding them to just seven points, en route to a 12-point victory. Packers exacted their revenge in Week 17 at Lambeau Field, beating the Lions by 10 points before both teams headed to the playoffs. As a result, look for more tightly-contested action between the two in 2015. Lions tickets are also drawing some busy activity thanks to the club’s resurgence in recent years.
