Tom Brady's Return To Foxboro Is The Most Expensive NFL Ticket This Season
Patriots fans will be emptying their wallets to watch Tom Brady's first game back in Foxboro this weekend.
The future Hall of Fame quarterback wasted no time in his first game back from serving a four-game suspension against the Browns last weekend, throwing for 406 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-13 Patriots win. All eyes now shift to Gillette Stadium for Sunday's match-up against the Bengals, and Patriots tickets for Brady's return game are posting massive prices on the secondary market.
On TicketIQ, the average resale price for Patriots vs. Bengals tickets is now $673.21. For fans looking to just get past the gates at Gillette Stadium, the cheapest available ticket is listed starts at $308. Not only does that make it the most expensive Week 6 NFL game, but it is also serves as the highest-priced remaining home game for the Patriots this season.
The top-priced honors don't stop there. With Brady set to play in his first home game since the 2015 AFC Divisional Game against the Chiefs, Sunday's game against the Bengals will be the most expensive regular season game of the 2016 NFL season. Just one other game this season will exceed the $600 average. That game is between the Steelers and Cowboys at Heinz Field on November 13, currently, which has a $658.13 average price.
