The Atlanta Falcons have made appearing in the playoffs a regular thing during the Matt Ryan and Mike Smith era. It wasn’t until last year that they finally won one of those post-season games, however. With that one win, the Falcons put themselves a win away from the Super Bowl. While they didn’t finish what they started in 2012, coming so close put the taste of the Lombardi Trophy in their mouths and even convinced aging star tight end Tony Gonzalez to come back for one more season.
With former Rams running back Steven Jackson replacing the plodding Michael Turner in the back-field, the Falcons’ already potent offense is expected to be even better in 2013, and could finally seal the deal with a Super Bowl victory.
Knowing all of this, it’s astounding that Falcons tickets for home games can be had for just $150 on average in 2013. As low as that is, some of their division games can be had at even better deals. Let’s take a look at their six divisional contests for 2013 and compare the prices:
- (10/20) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Avg: $116 | Get-in: $25
The Falcons typically do well against the Buccaneers, and do even better at home in general. Their average home game price is crazy, but with this one being 23% below that and a likely win, fans are getting quite a deal.
- (11/21) vs. New Orleans Saints | Avg: $182 | Get-in: $52
The Saints will come in guns a blazing with Drew Brees and co., but again, the Falcons usually stand their ground at home. Falcons fans are only paying 21% above the home game average and they’re getting a likely shootout that will likely be worth the price whether Atlanta wins or loses.
- (12/29) vs. Carolina Panthers | Avg: $132 | Get-in: $31
No one can be sure if the Panthers will suddenly turn into a playoff team, but we do know they play the Falcons very hard. Cam Newton and co. will be looking to put the finishing touches on a wild card spot here. It’s a huge division game and the season finale. At 12% below Atlanta’s home game average, need we say more?
- (9/8) @ New Orleans Saints | Avg: $309 | Get-in: $130
Road games are never easy, but this one is against the Saints and it’s the season opener. Falcons fans will want to make the hike for this one, as season openers don’t get a whole more more explosive than this.
- (11/3) @ Carolina Panthers | Avg: $154 | Get-in: $36
The Panthers are sure to give a heartier fight on their home field, and while this matchup is a little pricer on the road than it is in Atlanta, it’s still just $154 on average, which is about their home game average, anyways.
- (11/17) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Avg: $152 | Get-in: $28
The Buccaneers are better than advertised, as the Falcons split the season series with them in 2012, and their only win was actually only by one point. For just $152 on average, fans of both teams could be getting a nail-biter on the cheap.
